I created a neat little animated cursor (.ani) file with Microangelo.  I don't want to use it as a cursor, but rather as an animation file on a form.  What ActiveX control do I use to make this work?
Thanks!

You need to convert your ANI file to an AVI file.  You can do that with many freeware and commercial apps.  Go to altavista and search for "AniToAvi" and you'll hit a bunch of links.  Here's one possibility..

Now, add the microsoft common controls 2 component by selecting Project | Components.  You'll get an Animation control.  It has an open Method that opens AVI files.
