Do you use the Setup.exe program at all - my project creates both an msi and a setup.exe but I wasn't using the setup.exe and i don't see any references to it in the link mentioned above.

I have done it long back and don't remember using setup.exe, I believe it is used to verify the dependencies required for the application getting deployed through .MSI file. like .NET framework, if you run through msi it will not display any message but
you application will not properly. If you start setup.exe it will give you error message for .NET requirement installation or will automatically install it.

I did everything in the link mentioned - implemented IObjectSaftey - and I ran signtool on both my cab file and my msi but when I launch my webpage nothing seems to happen. I think I am missing something but I just don't understand what should prompt the
install of my msi folder. I thought the hooks in the inf file would do that but it doesn't seem to do anything.

Did you uninstalled the already installed version of activex control. Also you need to change the IE setting as John suggested.
Internet Explorer has zone security settings that prohibit downloading active X components. You may want to customize the security levels to "prompt" when unsigned active x controls try to download.

I am not expert on asp.net mvc 3 (i am expert on windows app) but i beleave if use activex, you break all escence of internet app, your app must be run on all internet explorer mozilla, chrome, opera, safari and dolphin if you use activex your app only run
on internet explorer... inclusive depend of number version 6 7 8 or 9, activex is deatly slowly for internet incompatibility equal that flash.

I did try all of the IE security settings - I made a trusted site and turned off active x (all of the settings to just try it out). I was able to get the prompt for the install but when I click to install nothing happens. At this point I am going to just
have the kiosk operator run the install and not continue down this path. Thanks for your help.
