Since the purpose of the codebase tag in the HTML object tag is to allow the site visitor to "see my design" without having to undertake any manual steps, then including the prequesites in a set of linked CAB files would be great. If the Autodesk Design Review install process could determine what a user needs and only download/install that, as opposed to downloading everything and then installing only what the user needs, then we could have the best of both worlds. Having a CAB-based install process that fails due to lack of prerequisites does no one any good. It makes the user take action to correct it. If you are going to have the user take action, then our customers might as well have an ADR link on their pages where their vistors can manually download and install.



Is it the future yet? There doesn't seem to be any information out there on CAB-based installation techniques for the current version (ADR 2010) that I can find.

Or is there a way in an html page, of detecting that they don't have ADR and pointing the user directly to the bootstrap installer?
