Importing ActiveX Control Libraries

Aximp is a command-line tool that generates an ActiveX Control wrapper assembly. This assembly is required so that the ActiveX Control can be used on a Windows Form. A special utility is required, because a Windows Form can only host controls that are derived from the System.Windows.Forms. Control class, and the tlbimp utility does not create a wrapper derived from that class.

The aximp tool will generate both interop assemblies (as with tlbimp, this includes dependent assemblies), and the ActiveX wrapper assembly. Like tlbimp, aximp has command-line switches to sign the assemblies produced with a strong name. Unlike tlbimp, aximp cannot generate a primary interop assembly.
