use the MS web_browser control and then navigate to it - you can then put the .gif in your resources under the HTML section or you can keep it on the disk or even on the web

I use Navigate method to open an HTM file on the file system. But I don't want to have extra file. How can I navigate to a resource item? How can I store the gif file under the HTML session?

okay add the gif to your .rc2 file - I do this because viewing gifs in VisualStudio when they are under the HTML section causes them to crash

YOUR.GIF             HTML    DISCARDABLE     "your.gif"

then you can navigate to it using

I am assuming you are using the CWebBrowser2 wrapper generated by MFC

pWebBrowser->Navigate("res://.\\yourapp.exe/your.gif");
