You can post the compiled .exe file but they will be platform specific.

Java compiles the source code into a 'semi-compiled' format that the Java Virtual Machine on whatever platform you are running then interprets.

C# is Microsoft's version of Java and is probably the closest you'll get to c++ that can be used on the web.

ActiveX is dead. Plus, it is just terrible, awful software. A very tiny amount of people actually have the right stuff installed for it, and it is friggin dangerous. Ive had to reformat because of some ActiveX crud.

Anyway, who uses IE anyway? Only someone who likes pain and frustration.

It appears that Popcap.com use ActiveX for some of their games (Most are Java however).

I would imagine these are written in C++
