Currently only a Winelib-App can do that look at for what that is.

How ever if you're client is written in ATL or MFC than that is a 
different problem and it will be harder to do.

ocx is Just a special case of dll. exe is what is called an 
out-of-processs server. It is heavier and slower but has the advantage 
of being able to be single-tone (all clients call on one server). Both 
types are supported under wine.
