I am not sure about older VS versions, but VS2022 has option to enable 'ActiveX Controls' under Advanced features while creating the MFC application project.

I have an old C++ MFC app VS project.
Is there a way to know if the 'ActiveX Controls' option was selected while creating that particular project?

What I have tried:

I tried finding in property pages of the project; but unable to figure out anything.

Check if AfxOleInit() and AfxEnableControlContainer() are called (for ActiveX controls enablement).

Thanks Shao for the quick response.
The project in concern has AfxEnableControlContainer() called but not AfxOleInit().
What shall I depict from this?

1 solution

Create 2 projects with the wizard, but one with and one without 'ActiveX Controls' activated. Than you see the difference.
Shao is right, but in the resource file is also some silly macro value for that. And maybe some other linking settings.
