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

and choose AutomationObject or Active form or com Object...

after you choose ActiveX Library
