ActiveX MSI Installers - With Per Site Registry Entries

I currently have requests for a few ActiveX Controls to be implemented within our Internet environment and we wish to package this control for easier distribution. Within the package we wish to add the registry keys for Per Site control. More detail can be found here


My packaging experience is limited and have previously only added ActiveX controls to the PreApproved key in the registry so the ActiveX control automatically works for any site

Any information would be appreciated

This is a little complicated, in that the registry data is in HKCU meaning that the best implementation will be via manipulating the feature tree of the MSI such that you can utilise self-healing. If the MSI has no advertised entry-points, such as an advertised shortcut, then you'll need to bring Active Setup into play in order to ensure that all users who log on to the system get the registry entries.

Other than that, I can't see any substantial differences between this set-up and what you're already used to.
Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.
