I have an active-x control that I want to manually add to the "c:\windows\downloaded program files" folder on my Xp sp2 PC.

I can't figure out how to manually add and register active-x here...copy/paste is blocked and there doesn't appear to be any import feature. Any ideas on how to do this?

    You can do that using DOS.


    c:\>copy source destination

    Go to START -> RUN , Type cmd there
    Open DOS.

    Then To copy from the current drive and folder/directory to the folder/directory

    c:\>copy filename.txt c:\windows\downloaded program files  

    Browse to the current folder which contains the file.....

    Or if you cannot browse to the folder which contains the activex then use below statement

    c:\>copy c:\download\filename.txt c:\windows\downloaded program files
