    create webbrowser with ATL

    I'm trying to create a simple webbrowser at my app.

    code sample:
    ATL::CAxWindow m_wndContainer;
    ATL::CComPtr<IWebBrowser2> m_spWebBrowser;

    HWND hWnd = m_wndContainer.Create(NULL,

    CoCreateInstance(CLSID_WebBrowser,NULL,CLSCTX_INPROC,IID_IWebBrowser2,(void**) &m_spWebBrowser);

    everything is work fine except the fact the it seems that it create an IE version 7.0 and my machine have IE 8 installed.

    it not suppose to create the IE according to my installed version?
    how do i suppose to do it?

    thanx anyone

    Under the following registry key


    add a DWORD value having the name of your application that hosts the Web Browser Control.

    Set the value as stated in MSDN Library: Internet Feature Controls - Browser Emulation.
