      file.inf and file.dll



file2.cab which contains:




The tools I typically use are adminstudio, installshield 2013

- Created new MSI with a new feature.

- Used the installshield "Componant Wizard" to complete import.

       Componant type:   "COM Server"

        COM server destination: [SYSTEMFOLDER]\Downloaded Program Files

        added COM server files(DLL, OCX)   (check extract registration)


Thank you installshield automation :)
