How to download an ActiveX automatically and register it into the system?
Posted on 1998-03-04
This is a script file written to test the IETimer.ocx
<HEAD><TITLE>Timer Function </TITLE></HEAD>
<param name="Interval" value="2000"><param
timer1.Enabled = true
var nCount = 0
document.test.count.value = nCount;
<form name=test >
<input type=text name=count value=0>
When this is executed in WinNT IE4.0 the ocx was automatically downloaded from the internet and the timer started working. When the same was executed on Win 95 it did not work. I got a script error while accessing the property of the timer which means the control was not registered properly. The same thing happens for WinNT IE 3.0 browsers. What is the reason? Is there any way by which it can be downloaded and registered automatically? What are all the steps needed for this?
