Oh, that OLE2 does not necesarly start or launch your application when
a document gets loaded. if your application has provided a display
cache (a metafile), the OLE2 container will just get the display
representation until the user actually activates the object.

Nope. As I mentioned, OLE2 delays the component loading until it is
absolutely necessary: if only the display of the embedded is
requested and an available cached image is available, that will be
used until the user actually activates the object. Cool stuff.

Oh? Can you comment more on this issue? I want to know what I should
be looking for to avoid screwing us.

Thanks a lot.
