Hello everyone,

I need to create an activex control in web application to transfer folder from server to client machine.i have web application which will host on intranet and it will install printer on client machine. For this firstly i need to transfer the folder of printer's driver on client machine for which i need to create a activex control.My requirement is like this:-

1)user opens a intranet website link.
2)select printer which user's wants to install on his/her machine.
3)After clicking on install printer button i want an activex control which will install on client's machine.
4)Then it will make connection with server and start transferring folder from server to client machine.

For making connection with server i have server administrator credentials .
I have done this work in that case in which when user click on install printer button then server make connection with client machine and transfer folder from server to client machine because all the client machines are on the domain and i have domain administrator id which i have administrator rights on each client machine which are on domain.But for this there is one dependency that "file and printer sharing for microsoft networks" should be checked on client machine but due to policy on domain this option is not checked due to which i cannot make connection with client machine and it gives me error "No network path found".That's why i want to create activex.I have tried to create class library project and then add in web application i used this dll using object tag in html page. its working fine on my local machine but when i deploy on it IIS and open that link on client machine its not working.Please help me.Its urgent and i am really stuck in this problem more than 20 days but still not get any solution. Please help me............

You could just give a url to a file that the user can click on.
