Using ActiveX control host from a "normal" DLL

Hi All,

I'm trying to use the ActiveX control host in Atl 7.1 to host an MSHTML
control. Using dynamic linking to atl71.dll everything seems to be
working fine.

However, when I try to statically link to ATL things start to go wrong,
initially this was because I had no CAtlModule object in my dll.

So I added one, like this:
class CAtlMinimalModule : public ATL::CAtlModule
        m_libid = MyDummyID;

    virtual HRESULT AddCommonRGSReplacements(IRegistrarBase*
/*pRegistrar*/) { return S_OK; }

CAtlMinimalModule g_MyModule;

Now everything seems to be working pretty much OK. However, when the
AxHost gets any IDispatch::Invoke calls in, the IDispatchImpl in
CAxHostWindow tries to load the type library from My DLL - which
doesn't exist. This means that none of the Ambient properties can be

What do I have to do to get the IDispatch implementation of
CAxHostWindow to start working? I'm guessing I have to shove the tlb
into my resources somehow? Any clues?

Thanks in advance for your help!
