I have an Internet Explorer add-on that is a .cab file which contains a .dll and a .inf. Does anyone know how I can install this as an IE add-on? I've tried the most obvious: drag-and-drop, extracting and right-clicking the .inf file and clicking "Install", but neither work.

Anybody have any ideas?

All the add ons for IE8 are installers, It looks like it is a cab file used in conjunction with an IE8 customization tool, used for customizing IE8 when it is deployed with the OS during installation.

Nlite, an XP customizer also uses a cab file to integrate IE8 into the image.
