Then you will do much better to switch to Visual Basic 6. It wraps up
"ActiveX" and makes it easy to work with.

C++ is a lower level language, so we wrap ActiveX in C++ templates ("ATL").
These are easier for advanced programmers to work with, but much _much_
harder for anyone with "no idea how to do it".

I have successfully deployed IE plugins written in VB6, and learning VB from
scratch - if you don't know it - will be easier than learning all the
low-level details between C++ and ActiveX!

Wow. Perhaps you should consider a hobby more suited to your aptitude.
