ActiveX Registration

I created an ActiveX control using Visual Studio .NET 2003 and will use it
with HTML page , the problem I have that I need not to foce the client to
Register the ActiveX in order to use, i need the registration process to be
done automatically , how can I achieve this?

You have three options, the first and the second work in any windows
version, the third only works with XP / 2003

First option: Make a setup program which must call to DllRegisterSever
function exported by your ActiveX.

Second option: The client can call DllRegisterSever before begin to use
your ActiveX component so you ensure that your component is registrered.
Third option: Use registration free COM

You can use some setup creation application like innosetup or so. There are
many free available. Or you can create a setup project inside VS 2003.
