For an Visual ActiveX control (.net dll) to be listed on the 

   OLECustomObject -> Insert object Dialog list.  Must it

  1. have a strong name
  2. be installed in the GAC
  3. Must it have an internal manifest resource packed in?

Any other requirements?

Working with legacy code is FUN!

It needs to have been wrapped as an ActiveX, exposed to COM and you must do a "regasm.exe ..... /codebase" (unless it's already on the GAC by for example having compiled the DLL on the same PC in Visual Studio).

Note, it does not HAVE to be on the GAC.

Ha ... in my opinion, ironically "working with legacy code" (use of activeX?), makes it possible to use code that's "less legacy" (like .net visual controls).
