Using an ActiveX Control in a windowless DLL

I try to invoke funcitons of AcitveX control in a DLL. However, I found out that the control cannot be initialized normally (m_pCtrlSite=NULL). Therefore, I got "Assertion Failure" (winocc.cpp line 345) on calling the ActiveX function. Also, I don't have any dialog to show. Can I do it if I do not any dialog? What is normal procedure to initialize the control?

Since I am new in VC++, I will be happy if you can tell a bit more on the detail.

Hi!
You have to provide IOleControlSite for working with ActiveX.
for you IMHO you need to create hidden nonmodal dialog box containing ActiveX.

migel is right, and if the fnctions which you want to use also in another interface, I think you can use it with #import directive.
