I"ve created an ActiveX control and added it into my Web application. When I run the application using Microsoft Developers Environment(Default Web Server) the application works fine and also the ActiveX control.

When I Host the application on IIS on the same machine the application works fine but the ActiveX control doesn't appear nor gives any error. This gives me an indication that there is something wrong with IIS settings for ActiveX. Because same page works fine when not hosted on IIS and when you host it on IIS it stops displaying ActiveX.

Even I deployed the same application on another machine which had IIS installed previously it worked fine on that machine as well. But when I tried to access the application from another machine the same problem appeared.

Have you checked any warning messages displayed in the browser when trying to access the link ? Maybe the browser is blocking the activeX ?
