Signing an ActiveX control

I'm having trouble sorting through all of the information on signing files, and am hoping for some more insight.  I have an ActiveX control (.ocx) that I am deploying using a cab file.  I have purchased a code signing certificate, but am not sure how to use it.  I've found information on signcode and signtool - I think I need signcode although I'm not certain.  Where can I download this?  Every pointer I've found to it is either obsolete or it refers to .NET, and I'm not developing in .NET.  (maybe the .NET sdk is the only place signcode.exe can be found, but I want to make certain I'm using the right exe)

Also, do I need to sign both the .ocx file and the .cab file that installs it, or just the .cab file?

Thanks in advance!

The .NET Framework SDK includes it, alternatively Microsoft will send it to you via email if you apply for a license to use restricted software such as Windows Media Rights Manager.

Thanks, I was planning on closing this question today because I was finally about to find the software a couple of days ago, but I'll award you the points for your response.  Hopefully that info will be helpful to someone else in the future.

Also, for the second half of my question, I learned that just the .cab file needs to be signed.
