1. Well if it's an ActiveXObject it should be usable from within any OLE container right? Microsoft Word, PowerPoint Presentations, as well as Internet Explorer. note: This actually simplifies a host of things I wanted to do to integrate explorer with IE, I'm hoping that I can build a complete sample over the weekend. 2. One common usage of a lot of firms is IE as an interface, using the webbrowser control. Wrapping the webbrowser control an application and using it as the interface for your application, you can define new functions in language X that your interface can call, thus you can use html's layout capabilities, all other capabilities of the browser to host activeX objects such as this one, and call external arguments. The app can also access the html dom and change things, so for example the wrapping application could access a tag, such as the object tag, and change what .r file was being called by that tag.
