HELP: ActiveX Control on webform - ASP.NET General

I am going to use an ActiveX control on my webform. 1. How can I set it up so that if a user views the web page and doesn't have the ActiveX control it immediately/automatically downloads it from a predefined location? 2. How do I handle registering it on their machine (with 'regsvr32'?), or do I even need to do this? (This ActiveX control is an unmanaged, non-server control.) Thanks, Robert...

    Default HELP: ActiveX Control on webform

    I am going to use an ActiveX control on my webform.

    1. How can I set it up so that if a user views the web page and doesn't
    have the ActiveX control it immediately/automatically downloads it from a
    predefined location?

    2. How do I handle registering it on their machine (with 'regsvr32'?), or
    do I even need to do this? (This ActiveX control is an unmanaged,
    non-server control.)

    Thanks,
    Robert

    Hi


    Make an internet install CAB file and reference the CAB file with the
    CODEBASE tag in your OBJECT tag

    The CAB file should contain a setup program for the control that installs
    the control/registers it in the system registry

    <OBJECT ID="myControl" CLASSID="CLSID:whatever"
    CODEBASE="http://WHERE.com/MYCONTROL">
    ......
