Persistence of cookies and authentication tickets when CHtmlView launches new IE browser windows

My clients must be authenticated with a .NET authentication ticket or cookie that persists over all browser windows.  It works correctly if I start the web application in Internet Explorer.  The authentication ticket will persist over any new window that is launched by a script on the page.

But if the user logs on from a page running in a CHtmlView, and then when the page launches a new IE browser window, the user is not authenticated in the new window and must log on in that new window.

Why is this so?  What must i do?

I think you have a best chance to get answer in WEB development area. My guess is that IE security level should be reduced. However, you can get a good advice about cookies and authentication from WEB developers.

CHtmlView is hosting the Internet Explorer ActiveX control.

The only difference I see so far between the ActiveX control and Internet Explorer is that authentication cookies don't persist between the Internet Exporer ActiveX control and a new Internet Explorer browser window.

And i believe it is a matter of having to override some implementation so that the ActiveX control shares the authentication cookie with the new Internet Explorer browser window.  But i don't know, hence why i'm here and in the MFC subject area.

I will be closing this question, for I have solved the problem.

I have overrided the OnNewWindow2 event of CHtmlView.
In the event, i create a new document window, and the authentication ticket persists.

Solution:
I overrided the OnNewWindow2 event and created a new document frame having the same parent application....

void CBrowserView::OnNewWindow2(LPDISPATCH* ppDisp, BOOL* Cancel)
{
    // Get a pointer to the application object
    CWinApp* pApp = AfxGetApp();    // Get the correct document template
   
     CDocTemplate* pDocTemplate;
    POSITION pos = pApp->GetFirstDocTemplatePosition();
    pDocTemplate = pApp->GetNextDocTemplate(pos);
    ASSERT(pDocTemplate);    // Create the new frame

    CFrameWnd* pNewFrame = pDocTemplate->CreateNewFrame(GetDocument(),
                                   (CFrameWnd*)AfxGetMainWnd());
    ASSERT(pNewFrame);    // Activate the frame and set its active view
     pDocTemplate->InitialUpdateFrame(pNewFrame, NULL);

    CBrowserView* pWBVw = (CBrowserView*)pNewFrame->GetActiveView();
    ASSERT(pWBVw);
    pWBVw->SetRegisterAsBrowser(TRUE);
     *ppDisp = pWBVw->GetApplication();
}
