Trouble with ActiveX control in IE5.0

I've developed an activeX control that has a GUI using MFC on VC++.  It has a few buttons, select boxes, combo boxes and a grid.  Everything was fine with IE4.0.  But recently i've installed IE5.0 on my machine and this control just doesn't work on IE5.  
There is a similar control on the microsoft site -- DlgX.  I've tested this control both on IE4.0 and IE5.0.  Same results.

Am i missingsomething here?  Do i need to download any new library files?

What do you mean by "it just doesn't work"?  It doesn't display?  It displays but doesn't operate as you would expect?  Please provide a bit more detail.

It displays properly.  But the buttons won't respond for any clicks.  All the controls seem inactive.  I had the same problem with IE4.0 but found out a work around in the KB articles.  The 'DlgX' sample at Microsoft site is an example of this.

Thank you

What was the problem in IE4?  I have created an ActiveX control that contains windows controls and never had this problem (in IE4).

Is your control disabled and thus will not respond to user input?

Have you developed the control with vc++ 6.0. If so then check out for the service pack 3 and install it. I presume this should solve your problem.
