I am starting a project on Snap-In designers in VB.
I want to know :
1. What is a snap-In
2. How is it different from an Active-X Control because a snap-In project also compiles to an OCX.
3. What is MMC and why it is used in a typical VB project.
4. What other things can be done with VB and MMC.
5. Tell me a few good URL's where I can see the programming of MMC Snap-In's in VB.

excuse me for being a little off-topic, but personally I think the MMC is the most evil piece of crap microsoft have ever invented.

I believe that MMC has been abandoned by MS as well...

It seemed like a good idea at the time, but then somenoe woke up.

Some developers in our group were writing some support apps for their product, and were researching and starting work on MMC plug-ins.

About 3 months later (2 months ago) I was talknig to them again, and they passed on that little nugget.

In the earlier conversation, I was also pleased to hear that MDI is on the way out to be replaced by multiple windows of the same app... (MWI ?)  I never could guarantee to keep track of what was associated with each document window, and I hit one app which was perfect for MDI - but impossible to implement as it kept a common history and attributes list which kept swapping - depending on the active window !

OK, back to the question for our esteemed friend
