What is ActiveX? 

"ActiveX is the consumer brand name for all Microsoft COM-based technologies.... Tylenol is an easy-to-remember, more consumer-friendly brand name for a drug called Acetaminophen. In this same way, ActiveX is an easy-to-remember, more consumer-friendly name for COM. ActiveX certainly sounds much cooler than COM.

The reason so many people are confused by the name ActiveX is because the definition changed. Originally ActiveX was a brand name for all COM-based Microsoft technologies that had utility on the World Wide Web."

---- Alan Gordon (The COM and COM+ Programming Primer)

ActiveXs are 32-bit components, you must select 32-bit code option when using 64-bit compilers. Both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows runs 32-bit applications properly.
