I have built a win user control in visual studio 2003 using .net 1.1.  I can embed this control fine in other windows application, but I would like to embed it in asp.net web page.  The control is very simple it doesnt have any custom assemblies referenced, when I try embedding I just see a blank screen with a icon in the top corner that contains a small square, circle and triangle.  Am I missing something in my IE6 settings?  Here is how i am embedding

<OBJECT id="myControl1" name="myControl1" classid="Temp_User_Control.dll#MyControl.MyTest" width="288"
                                          height="72" >
                                    </OBJECT>

try taking a look here:
http://www.devhood.com/tutorials/tutorial_details.aspx?tutorial_id=187

make sure your class id has the url to the control:
<OBJECT id="myControl1" name="myControl1" classid="hthttp://127.0.0.1/Temp_User_Control.dll#MyControl.MyTest" width="288"  height="72" ></OBJECT>
and that the control is not in you bin directory
also make sure that you arent using any system colors

I am using a fully qualified url, so that is not the problem.  What color should I use?  Currently the background color was set to control.

Ok, I used the visual studio compiler to compile the vb into a dll then I referenced that in my webpage and it worked.  So what I am doing different on the command line that I am not doing when using the IDE?  I ran this from the command line to manually compile the class:  vbc MyTest.vb /t:library /out:Temp_User_Control.dll /r:system.dll,system.windows.forms.dll,system.drawing.dll,microsoft.visualbasic.dll

So how do I compile it into a dll using the IDE?
