But in windows embedded compact 7 it is not giving pop up. I enabled the Internet option security to install ActiveX control but it doesn't popup. How to install IE activex control from web page.

  • The ActiveX built for Windows desktop will not run on Windows CE. The installation process for ActiveX is more embedded-oriented. Usually there's a way to download the ActiveX control ahead of time and register it (obviously, it's not the same ActiveX DLL as for your desktop Windows). When you build your embedded device, you might built the ActiveX directly into the operating system.  Then you'd access the page and the local/installed ActiveX would be executed.

    Other than the registration of the control, there really isn't too much unique. The control should implement IObjectSafety.
