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.

NoteNote

Dependencies are not calculated for Cab projects; you must determine any dependencies and reference them.
