Hi All,
I have created and .cab file which downloads and installs an activeX control.
As a local admin when i access the webpage, the controls downloads and installs correctly.
However, while logging in as a regular User, it does not.
I have IE5/6 on Win2k/WinXP
Can an ActiveX install no matter what the user permissions on the machine are. Or is there a particular windows user security setting that controls this.

Appreciate the help.
Preetham.

I notice that both of these articles claim to apply to W2K.  Do they also apply to XP?
