Where can I get books on ActiveX and COM. I started with an ActiveX book (ATL) and it began by stating I must know COM. I wound up with Dale Rogerson's "Inside Com" Its on Amazon but no soft copy. I don't want any more hard copy books.

Every where I find a PDF or ebook version they want me to first down load their downloader. Their code could have anything in it so: No! to that.

So: What books do you recommend to a novice that needs to write an ActiveX component. The container is a commercial product and I need to write a video display for some very custom video input.

I am happy to pay, but it must be a soft copy.

Thanks for your time

EDIT: Another book I need: Win APIs.
The APIs and method that are needed to directly use TPC/IP. I want the ability to bypass all the cycle stealing intermediate classes and go directly to the API. I am having a difficult time with my searches on this and prefer a book that someone recommends rather than a stab in the dark.
