The .NET "ActiveX" control

P: 74
I have a unique ASP.NET authentication system that I'm developing wherein my ASP.NET application has to access a certain file on the user's computer...sort of.

I've been researching ActiveX controls and have developed a VB6 ActiveX that is able to do the job.
But... I'm having issues with the lack of security on this object and would like to develop this in VB.NET instead.

I've followed a bunch of examples on how to do this ...they seemed easy enough, however the .NET version of the "ActiveX" control simply will not do anything in the browser.

I've tested the .NET control on it's own, and it works properly...but when it's loaded through the web browser, the control will be visible but won't do the necessary work to access the file.

I'm sure this has to do with some sort of Security Trust issue between my .NET
"ActiveX" control and the client's Windows Operating system....

Does anyone know how to develop and utilize a .NET version of "ActiveX"?
Could anyone point me in the right direction so that I can learn how?
Does anyone know how to establish a Trust between a .NET "ActiveX" control and the Windows OS???
