Registration and Licensing
A control is usually provided as an in-process server (.DLL), although it can also be a local or remote server (.EXE).
A control typically supports self-registration and creates a set of registry entries when it is instantiated. A control can also be licensed to help prevent unauthorized use. See The Component Object Model for more information on self registration and licensing.
For more information, see ActiveX Controls Registry Information.
