Hi,

I have an application which consist of two dll file name SiebelAx_HI_Client_20420.dll and SiebelAx_Calendar_20420.dll, both of then are active X control for Siebel based application.I founded that this active X need to be register first and the file needs to be physically dump into C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files location.I am not aware how this folder works.When I see into the Folder thorugh windows explorer no files can be seen,but by browsing it through command promt i can see these files.
Basically i just want to know more about this files how is the output in real time scenario if this files get properly register.Do any one have any idea please reply to it.I am unaware about Siebel Environment just got to know from the internet that the above two mention files are active X control
SiebelAx_Calendar.cab - Supports calendar-related functions.
SiebelAx_HI_Client.cab - Provides high levels of usability, performance, and desktop integration. Contains user interface components such as a rich text editor, UI elements, and so on. The browser health check is also provided through this control.

I want to know more about it and also how the C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files folder works and what is its significance.

Regards,

There's really nothing to "know" or any particular significance to it, other than its being the location where MS deemed that downloaded ActiveX components and Java applets get deposited.

The reason that you can't view the contents natively in Explorer is that the folder is designated as a "volume cache". Check out your registry, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\VolumeCaches.

Weeeeeeeeeell........I'm guessing heeeeeeeeeeere......but I think perhaps the vendor might be the best place to seek that information.

My guess would be that the calendar provides a pop-up calendar for Siebel web-based apps. As for the other, you can sometimes get a clue by looking at the Explorer view of the containing folder. For example, the client I'm working for currently uses the F5 VPN. One of the ActiveX controls appears in Explorer as 'F5 Networks 5250 Terminal emulator'. Big clue...

Or you can look at the object class names which will have been registered. For example, the control above appears as 'u5250Terminal.u5250Terminal.1'. Not as big a clue but certainly a pointer.
