Cab File Projects
Cab projects allow you to create a .Cab file to package ActiveX controls that can be downloaded from a Web server to a Web browser.
Unlike the other deployment project types, there are no editors provided for working with Cab projects. Files and project outputs can be added to a Cab project in Solution Explorer, and properties can be set in the Properties window or in the Project Property pages.
Properties of Cab projects allow you to specify a level of compression, implement Authenticode signing, set the display name and version information, and specify the location of dependent files on the Web.
Dependencies are not calculated for Cab projects; you must determine any dependencies and reference them.
