Using CODEBASE tag for auto download of CAB file
Posted on 1997-12-09
One on our products requires ActiveX controls to be installed on the users machine (I believe in fm20.dll). We want to be able to point our users to our external Web Site and allow then to download and install the mspert10.cab file which contains these controls.
I believe this can be done via an HTML page using the CODEBASE tag, but that's where my knowledge ends.
Can you help me (and provide examples on how this is done).
Is the CODEBASE tag just an IE thing or does it work if the user connects using Netscape.
Any links to more info would also be useful (I have trawled the MS web site already).
