on
we have developed a site where the sine Active X conrol  is downloaded on the user machine
first time everything works fine i.e user see the certificate confirms programme to download the cab

 but next time
when user try installing again then no certificate is visible to the user.
Is there a way for my programme(asp page ) to know whether the certificate is already present on the system or whether my dll (Active x control )is already installed on the system
all help is appreciated

I think the anwer is no, IE handles this automatically and invisibly from the server's point of view.  Once the control is downloaded and installed, there is no further need to show the certificate.

Commented:
Possibly you can write your client side script to check the ActiveX Control on the Target machine
