Active X Doc manual Deployment = HELP!

Hi,
I have an Active X document that contains 1 userdoc, 3 forms, 7 class modules and 1 global module and need to deploy it on the company's intranet site.  Unfortuneatly I cannot use the wizard since the server is not set up to receive and set up the .cab file.  Also I will have to edit the Htm file since we are using IE 4.0 as the standard.  What I need to know is how to go about identifying, gathering, transferring and installing the required components to make this application work over the intranet.  I copied the project folder over and tried to open it on the server in IE but nothing happens (it tries to open the doc via the htm page it and cancels out - a direct link to the .vbd file gives an error msg that the path or directory is invalid).  I am sadly not up on my server installations.  Could anyone help?
Greatly Appreciated

Hi,

1. .vbd is not executable file format for browser. It have to be installed before being run in IE.

2. Tried the following procedures:
  - packag the ActiveX document project with standard type, with setup.exe and setup.exe
  - create a virtual director in web server then copy .vbd file, setup.exe and setup.exe into it
  - run setup.exe to install in server side
  - run setup.exe in every client side
  - input url for .vbd file

3. I think this is not a good way to use, may be, there is a beter way no need install every cilent side.
