The applet CustomHighApplet enables end users to customize their IE4+ HIGH security template to completely disable active-content in web pages. Microsoft Windows Foundation Classes for Java (WFC) are used to change win32 registry settings corresponding to the HIGH template values. The applet is contained in a signed cab file. The Java class is defined in a package com.nortelnetworks.is.sec

The following script makes use of the Microsoft SDK for Java v 4.0 tools to compile, package and sign the cabinet file customhigh.cab:

jvc /d .
