Sample .inf File for Component Download Service


;The sample .inf file below performs the following actions: 
; - Copies files to the Windows, System, Inf, and Help folders. 
; - Makes a number of registry entries (including entries that 
; will rename the copied files to long file names). 
; - Creates a link on the Help menu. 
; - Has an uninstall section that registers the uninstall 
; action in the Add or Remove Programs dialog box in Control Panel. 
; - Uses replaceable strings to make localization easy.
