Setting two ActiveX controls for one MIME type RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Hi,

     

    Is there a way to associate an ActiveX control with an already existing MIME type. I mean instead of overwriting the association of an already existing control with a MIME type, can the 2nd control coexist with the old control for the same MIME type and we can priorities our own selected control to be launched on double clicking on that type of file.

     

    I have refered to these articles which only tell how to register a control with a perticular MIME type.

    Looking forward to your replies.

  • Hi,

     

    I think you’d better ask this question at the Internet Explorer Extension Development forum. There are more experts of setting two ActiveX controls for one MIME type to give you better solution.
