According to Microsoft Documentation, in order to create a toolbar for Internet Explorer, you must register the clsid of the DLL that represents the toolbar and change the registry to reference that DLL in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar
The problem is that none of this can be done without administrative priveleges. My users need to be able to show an Internet Explorer toolbar without Administrative priveleges, and need to hide the toolbar just as easily.
I know this can be done because I have seen other applications do it, but I don't know how they do it.
So, the project is to make an Internet Explorer toolbar and show it without registering the DLL. There are many examples of Internet Explorer toolbars on the Internet, but no code examples of how to show them without registering the DLL.
It is preferable that the toolbar be written in Visual Basic 6.0, as that is what my toolbar is written in.
