RE: [archive] web runtime 6.2

You are not supposed to modify the cabinet, that will break the digital signature and you will get a problem with the installation (most of Internet Explorer these days will not accept activex's without digital signatures).

The acuauth.txt file is automatically created by the web runtime upon installation and points to a designated directory created for the web runtime of the web runtime. If you want to extend beyond this, you will have to have the enduser participate.

You are right, to change the cabinet file is not the right way,
but the web runtime does not install the acuauth.txt.

The install directory of the cabinet file is C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files and i found no way
to create the acuauth.txt in this directory.

If installing the cabinet does not make the acuauth.txt it means the component has already been registered.
The web runtime will as a part of the registration routine also see if there is an acuauth.txt file present and if not, it will create it pointing to the directory Acun (where n will typically be 0, but may be a higher number of there is already existing directories).

To validate this, go to the "Downloaded programs folder", execute this command;

regsvr32 acugtax.ocx /u

then:
regsvr32 acugtax.ocx
do a:
dir /a /s acuauth.txt

See if you got it then.
