I am having couple of questions regarding registering a component in the registry.
In my development environment, I use component services to register a component and it works great. Now I use Package and Deployment Wizard(PDW) to create an installation version for the application. What I really want is that when I run the setup.exe (created by PDW), it should also register the component. I dont want the client to do it manually.
Condition1: Should be automatically registered when setup.exe is executed.
Condition2: My asp files should be able to use the component even when the machine is logged off. (Right now, I provide the user information in component services).
One of my asp pages uses Server.CreateObject to create an object using a component registered using component services. This object would then write some parameters to the registry. I should be able to do in such a way that any user who loggs on to the system should be able to read the value (which also would be from an asp page written by me). To summarize, the values I write to registry using asp should be accessable by all users.
