Re: Setup and Deployment Cab Project in VS2005

I have Setup and Deployment Cab Project in VS2005. The cab appears to
have an osd file in it. Under C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files my
component status is always unknown, and has an invalid creation date.
Also under the version tab Description, Company, Language, and
Copyright are unknown.
Not sure about status, but Description et al come from VERSION resource
in your DLL. Just add one if you don't have one already.
I would like to change status to Installed, fix the creation date to
the date it was downloaded, (or the date I built it), and the rest.
I suspect the status and date are only going to be set if IE itself
downloads and installs the control, not if it finds it already installed
on the system by some other means. Remember that a control is
automatically registered as a final step in the build process. Try
loading a page referring to the control (with an appropriate codebase=
attribute) on a machine that didn't have it installed before.

necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to
land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly
overhead. -- RFC 1925
