How to create application whitch acts like the one on the windows update
page.

I created windows forms control whitch uses ActiveX object. I want to host
that control on the web page.
Every time the client opens the page the ie downloads boath my control and
the additional ActiveX dll.
How to make installer like on the windows update page to ask for permission
and to install the control on the clients computer. And stop all future
downloads.

Thank you.

Aurimas,

Why not just create an MSI package and distribute that over the web?
You will pretty much get the same experience. Windows Update is a pretty
massive application, and trying to replicate it will not do you much good.

Rather, I would look into what is coming out with .NET 2.0, ClickOnce.
It will provide a better installation experience for .NET applications
distributed over the web.
