OLE (Internet Explorer 4.0)

I want to develope a application that can use Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 as Automation object. For this I need to generate the classes information using AppWizard, so that I can use different methods to open, close the files/sites directly. I have done a similar application that uses MS-EXCEL 97. To generate the class information for IE4 i need the .odl or .tlb files(type library files) but these are not supplied with IE4 CD, So if anyone knows where these files are pl. answer me.
Thanks

Use SHDOCVW.DLL (this is Internet Explorer in an OCX - despite it's name)

Check the header EXDISP.H in your Visual C include directory (not MFC include).  EXDISP.ODL is also in Visual C include directory.

I tried to generate the files from shdocvw.dll fileand also checked the exdisp.h file. After i attach the dispatch and call any function seen in the generated file, i get a message "Invalid function call". So i think this is not the files used for automation of Internet explorer. If you know any knowledge database article which explains this pl. write to me.
