Aah, thank you Ryan. The term did tickle my memory, but it's been several months since I worked with this stuff.

Since this hasn't been mentioned yet, trying to call 'CreateUr i ' in urlmon.dll looks like a typo to me.. surely it should be 'CreateUr l '?

Yeah, it installs 3 before 2 and 1 to get around a bug in the installation routine. This is also why RogueSpear's installers use a two-step solution (one from SVCPack and one from RunOnceEx): installing 1 and 2 before 3 without rebooting in between locks up setup.

I've seen the + and - syntax used before, as well as bitmasks (flags!) ;) The reason I'd use either is because I intend to allow one to store the default configuration in a .cfg file, so the switches will be relative to that (the bitmask one won't be though, for obvious reasons)
