ActiveX For Windows Mobile Based Phones

1 New Member
Im in the research phase of this experiment. my goal is to get ActiveX controls on a windows 5.0 or 6.0 to run applications such as remote desktop or view live feed from a server. (watch camara feed..)

What i have come up with so far is....
it doesnt exist.


with your help, and the communities huge brains, i was hopeing to get a start on said project.

(script line edits and hacks i have no problem with, and i personally have a blackjack v1 & 2 to run trial tests on.)

this is a pretty general inquiery and i hope we can narrow down to what exactly needs to be done.
Many Thanks

From microsoft:

Yes, IE Mobile does support ActiveX quite extensively. In fact, the Windows Media Player is an ActiveX control. Adobe Flash is a good example of a 3rd party ActiveX control.

There are some platform differences that everyone needs to be aware of.
1. You can’t run Windows based ActiveX controls on a Windows Mobile devices. (X86 and ARM processors are too dissimilar.)So the Windows Mobile ActiveX controls need to be compiled for our platform and the ARM processor.
2. Windows Mobile IE Mobile does not support automatic download of ActiveX controls. This was a deliberate decision made to increase device security and to avoid the first point (a X86 version of a control being pushed down to a ARM based device).

There are 2 ways an ActiveX control can get on your device. Both require user interaction.
1. Installing it from a synced desktop
2. Copying a CAB file to the device and installing it locally
