Hello,
I have a weird requirement, the files that will be installed are in a zip file located on some web server. This means they are not known at the time of creating the setup file.
So the installation is basically:
1. Download zip file from server.
2. Unzip the file contents into the application directory.
3. Some activex controls are part of the application, they will also need to be registered.

What is the best way to proceed, I didn't find any standard way to do this, is custom action the only solution?
In that case I also have to write code to do the activex registration I guess.
Thanks.
