Omnis Web Client automatic install

For Omnis Studio
By Omnis Technical Support

Is it possible to allow you to automatically install the Omnis Web Client for Internet Explorer when going to a web page?

Summary

The following link is to a tutorial that is supposed to do exactly this, to allow you to automatically install an ActiveX when one accesses a web page.

You can create an installer that does not require the entry of a path where the ActiveX is to be stored. A path is automatically assigned, similar to the installation of the Omnis Web Client for Netscape on Windows. This can be useful for situations where customers have problems installing the thin client or providing a path to install.
