Register an Active X control during Clickonce Deployment

Hi,
I am creating a Click-Once Deployment for my forms project.  In that project there is an Active X control and two Interop DLLs that the project references.  As part of the deployment process, how do I register the Active X control when it gets deployed to the target workstation

I don't use ClickOnce deployment, but it was my impression that one of its drawbacks was that it can't deal with registering ActiveX controls...

The workaround i did for registering a COM component with an application deployed through ClickOnce was to use RegSvr32 on the startup of my application.

Actually, I found some info on this. It's called registration free com controls http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms165432(VS.80).aspx.

However, CodeCruiser, that's not a half bad idea, so I will aware the points.
