Hello All
Thanks in advance for any help I get on this post :-)
Here's the deal, I am trying to package up some activex controls and create the msi to deploy so my users arent prompted with the install of the addin everytime they access the site, the users are in a locked down environment too.
I was able to create the msi from the extracted files, and configured c:\windows\downloaded program files as the destination directory for the files to be copied too, only when I check the folder the files arent there, yet IE will download them to the folder no problem, also I have no permissions to the folder to change the attributes and I'm using adminstudio to package the files into an msi.

Thanks again[:D]
cheers

Hi, figured it out, when I ran the installer the downloaded program files folder attribute is set to read only | hidden in windows, ran dir from good old dos and viewed the folders contents.
Sooooo, looks like the install is doing as it is intended...
Thanks

Downloaded Program Files (the ActiveX Cache Folder) is a special folder (as identified by the hidden desktop.ini file). When you open this folder in Windows Explorer, you get an interpreted view. What you get in this case is a list of registered add-ons. You either have to access the folder from DOS (which doesn't adhere to desktop.ini) or temporarily remove/rename/alter desktop.ini to allow you to view it as a normal folder in Explorer.

BTW, the reason why you don't see your add-on is probably because you excluded the add-on registration information in your package.
