Hi experts,

I have a web application wich embed visio drawings with an activex, I want to add this functionality to my WinForm application.
Is there a way to do this, beside using a webbrowser control with a html page containing the activex.

This requires visio installed, I only want a viewer like we have for a web page.

Well, you could use one ActiveX control to host Office control (DSOFramer):
