Hi ExpertPro,

An ActiveX DLL shares the client program's address space. The main advantage is that it's faster. That's pretty much it. However, make sure you catch all errors if you use ActiveX DLL otherwise an uncaught one will cause the program to end.

hello,
Although ActiveX documents are usually built as EXE projects, the benefit of DLLs is that applications
that use in-process servers usually run faster than those that use out-of-process servers because the
application doesn’t have to cross process boundaries to use an object’s properties, methods, and events.
In addition, the performance of an in-process component, or DLL file, surpasses that of the same
component compiled as an EXE. Also, multiple programs accessing the same EXE can overwrite
global data, but that doesn’t happen if they each have their own in-process server.
