The first link details how to create an activex based on a user control (window).
You say that isn't suitable because you want windowless.

My suggestion.  Follow that first example almost exactly - just choose a non window as the base object.

ps.  A quick google search about windowless activex throws up lots of hits about the error message 'windowless activex not supported'.

Hi AndyAinscow, can you please elaborate the point "just choose a non window as the base object".

In that link instead of choosing 'user control' as a base choose something else that is more suitable for you.
