MFC ActiveX object


I wrote an ActiveX object using MFC for a web application. If i link the MFC dll dinamically, it wont run on machines where is no MFC dll. If i link it statically the size grows up to 1.5Mb(Far too large for a simple web app.). With  dinamic linking the size of the file is 150K.

What can I do to reduce the size?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Just copy some dll. files
MSCVRT.dll and MFC42.dll
Rewrite it using ATL. This sounds brutal, but anyone doesn't write WEB ActiveX controls using MFC.

I had to choose MFC because I use many Classes ATL does not provide.


Why and where should I copy them ?
I'm not sure, but when I see an 1.5 mb application it's probably because your building it in debug mode, in release mode it normaly shrink to almost 25kb in dynamic mode. But if you use pictures, try compressing it with something like UPX :
