Embedding a VB 6 standard EXE application in a .NET forns applicat

I am having an existing VB 6 standard .EXE application. Now I am developing a
wrapper application in .Net and I want to launch and execute the VB 6 exe app
in the .Net App window. That is VB 6 App window inside (embedded) in .Net app
window. How do I go about doing this stuff?

Thats correct.

Exactly I tried doing the same. I converted the standard exe to ActiveX exe
object in VB 6. I created a client VB 6 application (standard exe) for
testing purposes and added a form to it. Added a OLE control to the form and
tried to bind the ActiveX exe object to it. When I invoked the application,
the application is instantiated in a separate window, instead of emdedding in
the control. I need to get the app embedded inside the client application
window. Hope this clears the point.

What you mean by embedding?

If you want to reuse it as component, you'd need to make it an
ActiveX/COM component and then use it.

Hi. I'm interested in learning ModPython to develop a web application. What are my options in terms of embedding python in HTML?. I know there are several products arround but I would like to start using a (somewhat) standard toolkit because. How they differentiate? (performance-wise specially). Thanks.

Anyone know a good way to embed python within python? Now before you tell me that's silly, let me explain what I'd like to do. I'd like to allow user-defined scriptable objects. I'd like to give them access to modify pieces of my classes. I'd like to disallow access to pretty much the rest of the modules.

I accidentally sent this to webmaster@python.org, so this could be a duplicate if "webmaster" forwards it to this list. :{ Hi, there. Thanks for any help that can be offered. I've been working with Python for a year or more now, but only doing simple extending in C/C++. I'm now attempting some embedding and several questions have come to mind.

With some googling I have found these resources: http://docs.python.org/ext/win-dlls.html http://www.python.org/doc/faq/windows.html I have a large Win32/MFC/C/C++ application that has an embedded scripting language (a very limited one). I would like to rip it out and replace it with Python. I am thinking that this would be relatively simple since the scripting language is a very small interface between the UI and the engine --...

Hi Everyone, I am a beginner on cross language development. My problem at hand is to build a python interface for a C++ application built on top of a 3D game engine. The purpose of this python interface is providing a convenient scripting toolkit for the application. One example is that a user can write a python script like: player = Player() game.loadPlayer(player) player.moveTo(location)
