I am trying to find any examples of INF files that install multiple ActiveX components... What system DLL's will I need to include in an INF file for an ActiveX component developed in VC++ 5.0?

Does anyone have links to examples, or experience with these things?

What about the Object tags that it takes to call the CAB files?

Answers to any of these are welcome.

I have a CAB file that contains an EXE file, two OCX files that are needed by the EXE and a third OCX file that starts the EXE.  Nothing downloads when it is hit with the Browser.  The progress bars move, and the Digital signing (the CAB is signed) comes up and asks if I want to download and install... But the files are not on the system.

IE 3.02 on a clean install of Windows 95.

If you can snag VB 5, you can use its application setup wizard to build cab and self-extracting, self-installing applications for the web. all you need to supply is the names of the files.

To create .INF files, you can use an applicaton called INFEDIT.EXE which in included in the Windows 95 DDK etc. from Microsoft. Try searching for it on the net or at microsoft.com.

The required system DLLs for a Visual C++ 5 OCX are available at this address:
