    IE Auto Install

    How do websites make those windows that want to install somthing on your computer so it can display somthing come up? (Like Shockwave and Flash and igLoader)

    If I'm not being clear, this image should explain it: http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/downl...vex_dialog.gif

    Maybe steal a source code from somewhere? :P

    Isn't it is simple as defining an OBJECT with a codebase? If IE doesn't have object, ask user for permission to pull from codebase URL? The publisher and stuff is stored as a resource in the binary at the codebase URL (like the VERSION resource type).

    Pure rocket science, that.
