I'm trying to create an activex control in a thread other than the one
running eclipse. Specifically, I create a new shell in a new thread (and
create a new display) and try to instantiate an activex control using
the ole32 libs. When it trys to create the OleControlSite it fails with
the following error Failed to create Ole Client. result = -2147221008.

-2147221008 translates to Coinitialize hasnt been called.

What am I missing?

Hi,

The only thing I can think of is ...is your control registered using
regsvr32.

This was not support in 3.0. In 3.0, OleInitilialize was only called on the
first thread in which the OLE classes were loaded. In 3.1, however, this
should work.
