          Ogy, I have been asking the same question on this an the yahoo group. The answer I got is:
          No -- Flash does not support connecting to an OS file which the OCX would be
          Yes - go to www.multidmedia.com. they have a product (Zinc, maybe) which allows you to compile your SWF to an EXE and their libraries include one for Active X's (there are some restrictions as to the language the ocx is written in
          maybe -- How about communicating with the OCX via an application server (i.e. coldfusion running on jrun)

          So the simple answer is yes, no, maybe.

          Hope this help !
