Hi Experts,

After doing some research I have come to the conclusion that I need to create an activeX control to do what I need.

I need to have a link on a webpage which when clicked saves an .ini file to a specified location.

I really don't have a clue on where to start with this.

Does anyone know or have some code on how to do this please?

Thanks

start your delphi then select file -> close all
next do to file -> new -> other select ActiveX and choos ActiveX Library
new empty DLL will be created then go again to file -> new -> other -> activeX
and choose AutomationObject or Active form or com Object...
