Does Microsoft Office 2016 support COM/ActiveX?

Hi.

I have an application which communicates with Microsoft Word. It is working fine.
Now Microsoft is planning to release Office 2016. I have made some tests with this version and al seems to work fine, except the part where my application is trying to communicate via COM/ActiveX model. Then it says that "The associated COM server does not support ActiveX document embeded". Can this be solved?

Microsoft has stopped development of ActiveX controls for Office and these will soon be deprecated or no longer supported (Office 365).  VBScript hasn't had an update since 2000.  The new Edge Browser doesn't run Active-X controls
