Security issue running unmanaged code in a win form ctrl hosted in

P: n/a
Security problem running unmanaged code (.ocx control) in a windows from
control hosted in IE6
I have design a windows from control which contain a .OCX in one of its
Component developed in C#2005 -------- .NET2

Now, the control is loaded successful via IIS in my web application. Now
when I try to load the form where the OCX is hosted:

private void button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
Form1 a;
a = new Form1();

I got an .NET Excpetion saying:

System.Security.SecurityException: Request failed.
************** Exception Text **************
System.Security.SecurityException: Request failed.

The type of the first permission that failed was:
************** Loaded Assemblies **************
Assembly Version:
Win32 Version: 2.0.50727.42 (RTM.050727-4200)


Now the permissions for the windows from control are set to unrestricted. (I
have Double-checked it via the framework evaluation permission option for
assemblies persent in .NET)

Tried the following in the AssemblyInfo.cs

[assembly: AllowPartiallyTrustedCallers()]
[assembly: SecurityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.Request Minimum, Flags
= SecurityPermissionFlag.UnmanagedCode)]
[assembly: SecurityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.Request Minimum, Flags
= SecurityPermissionFlag.ControlEvidence)]
[assembly: SecurityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.Request Minimum, Flags
= SecurityPermissionFlag.SkipVerification)]
[assembly: SecurityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.Request Minimum, Flags
= SecurityPermissionFlag.AllFlags)]

[SecurityPermission(SecurityAction.Assert, UnmanagedCode = true)]
[SecurityPermission(SecurityAction.Assert, ControlEvidence = true)]
[SecurityPermission(SecurityAction.Assert, Unrestricted = true)]
no luck!!!!

Any idea how to run unmanged code in a window from hosted in IE6?
Many Thanks,
Filippo Bettinaglio
