I designed lots of ActiveX using VB6 for internet HTML pages.
Now, I need to use VB.net to do the same thing.
This is what I did:
a) Created a "Windows Control Library" project, say MyActiveX
b) Put a simple program in "UserControl1.vb", say HellowWorld
c) Build the program using either "debug" or "release" .   A file MyActiveX.dll is created in "bin" sub-directory
d) Using IIS (Internet Information Service) to set virtual directory pointing to MyActiveX local directory
==================================================================
e) Created a "ASP.net Web Application" project
f) Add a HTML page
g) Add <OBJECT id="MyActiveX" classid="http://localhost/MyActiveX/bin/MyActiveX.dll#MyActiveX.UserControl1"></OBJECT>

Well, it won't work no matter what I do.  
Please help!

Hello, first I have to say that you soon must transfer your Axtive X objects for websites, to Web server control. Because Windows XP Service pack 2 security will make lots of problems for you.
Second, if you really need that, check this:
-> Right click on your project name and select Add-> New Item
-> In the list, select ActiveX control or Com Component
Any way, I have to tell you that even if you use this technique, you will not be able to use .net Framework, because, .net framework is not installed on every machine.
