How to Create INF file for ActiveX CAB

I have created a Deployment project in Visual Studio 2008 for an ActiveX.  How do I create the necessary INF file for the following criteria?  Also, where are the INF options documented?

DLL dependencies (in SYS directory) Replace only if they do not currently exist in your C:\WIN\system32 directory
    MFC42.DLL            
    MSVCRT.DLL                

ALSO:
    SIGPLUS.OCX (Store in directory C:\SigPlus)
    SIGPLUS.INI (must be saved in WIN directory)
    TOPAZLICENSE.TXT (must be saved in same location as SigPlus.ocx)
    TopazAuto.inf (save to C:\WIN\INF)
    TopazUsb.sys (save to C:\WIN\system32\drivers)

You don't need inf file.

In setup and deployment project, click "file system on target machine", then you can add special folders, such as Windows folder; so then under that you can add Inf, for instance.

C:\SigPlus is against best practices, but if you really want, you can probably add "custom folder".

I'd think, MSVCRT.DLL  and MFC42.DLL always exist in every windows system.

click on your project  note in the solution tree (rather than solution node) and then look under menu "View".
