To list all installed Activex controls look under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID or download NirSoft's Activex Helper.

To then load and use that component in an HTML context try something along the lines of the following:



If you're trying to do what I THINK you're trying to do - I'd recommend loading the control into a RAD environment such 
as Delphi, VB or whatever that will let you see the properties, methods and events that you will need to know to then 
write the html. 

Hope this helps,

Hi Pavan,

what I am looking for is not MS products installed by ActiveX.
I want to use some ActiveX Control installed by default on the system.

And then show how an HTML page viewed in My Computer Sec zone can use it to 
take some actions on the system.

Any ideas,

Hi Andres!!

Well ,i don't have any knowledge about softwares of MS installed
through activex.Only when you update your computer ,windows updates
are downloded and installed through ActiveX.

If you want to show your customer the dangers of executing activex
then goto 2020search.com ,it is a known toolbar,it is termed as adware
and at the time of installtion of this toolbar as activex it will also
give u so many popups and through those popups it will prompt u to
install other third party applications.

This will show him dangers of activex.

I hope this helps.

Pavan Shah.

Hi, I need to explain a customer the dangers of executing ActiveX with

I would like to use it and show some "showy" actions being executed in 
system...directory listings, shares, ips, command execution??

Anyone knows which control may I use?
