Thanks for your answer! Is this hack GUARANTEED to work for any ActiveX object name (i.e. is this naming scheme a some form of a standard)? (I mean is there anything regarding this in OLE specs)? Can I rely on this hack in my code?
Using Perl with OLE. There are various tools available in the market to get the GUID's. The one that comes with Active Perl k/a browser works well. And then there are ways to track it via registry and Microsoft OLE viewer also.
