DownloadX ActiveX Download Control
ActiveX is a software framework created by Microsoft that adapts its earlier Component Object Model and Object Linking and Embedding technologies for content downloaded from a network, particularly from the World Wide Web Microsoft introduced ActiveX in 1996. In principle, ActiveX is not dependent on Microsoft Windows operating systems, but in practice most ActiveX controls only run on Windows. Most also require the client to be running on an x86 -based computer because ActiveX controls contain compiled code.
