I have created an ActiveX Exe.  How do I tell if someone has launched it standAlone or via creating an instance of it from another program.

Write the following code in your startup procedure:

If App.StartMode = vbSModeAutomation Then
   ' Code to start invisibly
Else
   ' Code to show main form
End If
