Hello

I am working on an activeX control that uses wininet.dll to read a cookie that has been set by another web page on our site. I have run into a few problems with getting this to work on a win 2000 system and I am wondering if there could be some kind of compatibility issue happening since I am developing on and XP Pro system. Also, what will happen when this control is run on a Mac? will the DLL install properly?

You cannot run ActiveX controls on a Mac. Macs do not read use or understand DLL files. You need to use something that is cross platform, like Java.
