Hi,
Follow the steps below.
1)Add the "OCX" group in the components tab and right side u will find the "destination" filed double click on it and give the specified destination u want.
2)Now go to fileGroups tab add new fileGroup with same name as "OCX" and add the *.ocx file in the links option there.
3)In the components tab go to ur executable component right side u will find "include file group" field there u  include this new group of files(i.e OCX)
4) compile and build it.
That should be doing ur job.

Hi Learn,
Right click on Component u get menu item saying NewComponent and rename that as OCX and do the same to file groups too.
And in the file groups u will find the field self registered as migel said make it as "yes" instead of "No" there, this will do the registration of ur OCX control on installation.
Again to change the registration option right cllick on that field and u get radio button and choose yes option there.
Hope it helps u.

Hi Learn,
If u want more info to add Ocx file what u do is right click on the "file group" -> "links" under ocx
filegroup u added. u will get option to "insert files" click on that,and insert ur *.ocx file.
And compile it,That should add the ocx file to ur install shield.
Hope that helps u.
All the best

Hi All,

Thanks a lot.
I have found we need to do the file group first and then do the component....
I am going to give the points to migel since he/she tell me something I don't know and I need.
