Embedded Web Browser COMException

Has anyone seen this behaviour before? I put Internet Exporer in a UserControl derived class and added this control to a form. When the form initializes at startup I get the following exception: A first chance exception of type 'System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException' occurred in system.windows.forms.dll Additional information: Unknown error The IE activeX control was added to my VStudio Toolbox via "Customise toolbox...". I selected \winnt\system32\shdocvw.dll. The version of this DLL is 6.0.2716.1500, last modified 4/15/2002, file size 1,336,320 bytes. I can delete this browser from my user control, re-compile, and my app runs. I add it back, and this error occurs again on startup. This exception is thrown in my user control's InitializeComponent() method on the following line: ((System.ComponentModel.ISupportInitialize)(this.axWebBrowser1)).EndInit(); I created a smaller stand-alone app with similar UI components and it runs fine :-( Has anyone else experienced this? -Roy

Roy, I have seen this before. But don't have any resolution for it. I remember that if you just remove the BeginInit and EndInit the app should work fine. Don't know if there are other issues when you do this. -Praveen

Oh yes I have seen this. It is very annoying because, on a little test app. I do not see the problem. Then, in my big memory hungry app, I see the problem. I tried moving the forms that use it to a DLL, but to no avail. I finally put catch's around the failing statements. Seem to work, but I am not happy. I assume it is timing and memory related. > Has anyone seen this behaviour before? I put Internet Exporer in a UserControl derived class and added this control to a form.
