I need to develop a number of new and replacement ActiveX controls.  Prior versions of the the ActiveX controls to be replaced were developed in VB 6.0.  Our Web-based applications are beginning to experience install problems with each new release of IE.  I am tired of fighting the problems and have began researching the best approach for replaceing and building new ActiveX controls that do not experience the various install problems.

Any ideas, suggestions, and/or recommedations are greatly appreciated.

When you use .Net Framework to develop an ActiveX Control, you have to install .Net Framework in the clients which want to use your ActiveX. So, installing .Net Framework will be a new problem. If it's not a problem for you, then both C# and VB.Net are good choices, otherwise you must choose other languages like VC++. VC++ doesn't have as much installing problems as VB 6.0, but it's more difficult to code.

Hope it helps.
