Signing ActiveX component

I have an ActiveX component that I want to display on a webpage. I can create both a .lic or a .lpk file. The problem is that the .lic isn't intended for the internet and the .lpk only seem to work on local paths.
So the question is: How do I make my ActiveX component not require the user to lower his/her security to install the component.
No workarounds, must be done within the html document and has to work when the document is located on a http server.

When you set "web Deployment" options,
you should select General Options / use CAB file compression.

This does not help much, works when you keep it locally but you still need to lower your security to be able to view it over the internet.
