AIMM (Active IMM) as documented in the web workshop on MSDN is the only way

for more info. Unfortunately, it has been stated that future versions of
AIMM may not be backward compatible... which scared me away from finishing
up a sample that uses it (there are not any publicly available samples so I
may yet change my mind!).
