    Of course, I was referring to this. Don't worry I wrote it myself last night.

    Just fyi, the only thing I could get to work in my situation (auto-install .NET 2.0 assemblies via an ActiveX control on a web page) was to write a little exe myself that calls into the System.EnterpriseServices.Internal.Publish object methods to install into the GAC and register it for interop.  I could have used regasm to do the COM portion, but since some people do not have the 2.0 runtime in their path (and I didn't want to hard code it in the .inf file), I just did it through the exe.

    If anybody wants details, I'd be happy to post them.  It took me a good 3 hours to get everything working as it should, and I see no reason for anyone to go through the same pains I did!
