Hello,

I have created an ocx that i want to run in internet explorer. The ocx is located in a cab file and signed with makecert and signcode. (im using a self created certificate at the moment for testing.)

The problem now is that the controll will not install it self for some reason. I see the messagebox asking me if i whant to install it and i also see the certificate i made but it does not install itself. I inly get a small square where the control should be.

I'm trying to install the control on a windows 2000 with internet explorer 5.

Does anyone have any ideas? It's a little urgent. I'm out of ideas anf i have been gooogeling around for hours....

Hello

Thanx for the link but im still stuck. I'm starting to suspect that there is a problem with the XML3 or the internet component that i use in the ActiveX. I created a dummy ActiveX without the xml and the internet component and that seems to work just fine to install.

I need the functionality to download documents from a site from within the ActiveX. Im using "Microsoft Internet Transfer Control 6.0 (SP4)"
