Some additional information from you would be very helpful.  You have essentially asked what is really a very general question involving two TECHNOLOGIES (i.e. ActiveX and WIN32).  You've given no information about the specific tools, methodolgies, or even your background or understand of this subject.

It's really difficult to give a meaningful and SPECIFIC answer when a question is asked so generally.

About all I can say is:

1) Initalize COM
2) Instantiate your ActiveX object
3) Query its interfaces
4) Set or query its properties
5) Invoke its methods
6) Release it when you are finished with it.

Whether the above it simple or complex depends on many
factors you have said nothing about.

Using ActiveX 'from scratch' in a WIn32 program is very difficult.  You are much better off trying with ATL or MFC as a way to get started.  The support classes that are provided in these frameworks exist just because doing it by hand is arduous and fraught with peril.  Or use JScript or VB.

I just want to place an activeX control(.ocx) already created, on my window. I am writing the window code using win32 programming.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
