An ActiveX control compiled with Visual C++ 6.0 when embedded in a dialog box in a project developed with Visual C++ 2008 may cause your program to assert at runtime. In this situation, recompile the ActiveX control using Visual C++ 2008. The assert will be in the file occcont.cpp, on the line in source: ASSERT(IsWindow(pTemp->m_hWnd)).
