I want to create an HTML / JSP page which will allow me to download .CAB file that was created in Visual Basic. I want to download the file when I click a link on the page.

The .CAB file contains a visual basic application.

How can I do It.

You say it contains an application. But is it an application that should work inside the webbrowser, or should it just be downloaded and then activated by the user itself?

Using the package & Deployment wizard an html file will be created. That HTML file contaisn the code to show the control in the webbrowser.

If it's a standalone application you should be able to create a normal html link <a href="http://mysite/mycab.cab">Click here</a>

regards,
CJ

you can insert the object using ms frontpage or visual interdev. I believe your vb app have an .ocx files. Just insert the .ocx files using frontpage or interdev (the classid will be automatically created), then in the "codebase", refer to your cab file.
