We currently have a pretty cool asp.net app using dotimage and dotwain together and embed the control in IE using NTD (no-touch deploy). The issue that we have sometimes is that the client's bandwidth is not very large and downloading the control every time the client launches IE for the first time slows down production quite a bit. I'm not aware of any way to cache the control in the GAC for a browser embedded dll if anyone has any insight into this that would be great. The other option that we are toying with is making our application COM accessible and then using the .net active-x wrapper which will make it an active-x control and put it in a cab file and embed it control in IE that way. Does anyone have any experience with this and or tips on doing this?
That would be of great help!
Also how would licensing play indo this?
