In order to embed licensed controls successfully, ActiveX control containers must use IClassFactory2 instead of IClassFactory. Several OLE creation and loading helper functions (OleLoad and CoCreateInstance) explicitly call IClassFactory and not IClassFactory2, and therefore cannot be used to create or load licensed ActiveX controls. ActiveX control containers should explicitly create and load ActiveX Controls using IClassFactory2.
