I am just getting into this and have experience building web applications using PHP, ASP, Javascript, VBScript as well as VB6 client server applications and VB 2010 Express utilities.  That being said I have no idea where to start to develop a client side application that is served by a web site but processes data locally.  Basically I am trying to build a tool that has to "check in" with my web site to get the code that will run on the client before the client application can be run.  Is this ActiveX?

I am hoping to have this something that does not have to be installed locally in a traditional manner, just ran locally.  That is why I thought ActiveX might make most sense.

ActiveX is almost exclusively Microsoft / IE based.  Java would be the more universal technology.  It can be loaded from a web page.  You have to have 'signed' applets/applications to allow it to run in almost all circumstances.  http://java.sun.com/developer/onlineTraining/Programming/JDCBook/signed.html  The end user also has to have Java installed on their machine.
