Internet Explorer ActiveX compatibility patch

Hello.

I've tried to install the Compatibility Patch for Internet Explorer for
Windows XP Professional x64 Edition (KB917425), this for removing the
borring message: "Press spacebar or enter to activate and use this control"
everytime accessing a site with some kind of ActiveX/Java-control.

I download the correct file for my x64 Pro edition, but get ths error: "The
version of Internet Explorer you have installed does not match the update
you are trying to install".

Any suggestion to get rid of the "Press specebar...."-message and this
ActiveX/Java-security?

Regards
Pingla

That has to be an effect of the 32bit version being the default, there
should be a work-around for this but I am not confident to make any
guesses - perhaps you just have to point the installer to the correct
directory? The philosophy behind is rather convoluted and you will need an
answer from, perhaps, Charlie - so as not to get it all backwards.

Got me, Tony. I haven't actually noticed anything around this, and don't see
an obvious reason why it wouldn't install. Perhaps Darrell will have a
comment when he swings through.

Hello,
Was KB912812 installed previously?
Try removing that first then try reinstalling KB917425.
What is the value under:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer:Version?
I don't have an Windows XP X64 edition install right now so can someone
else check the value so we have an idea what it should be?

Thanks,
Darrell Gorter[MSFT]

I'm having the same problem and my IE 32bit version is the default version
in HKLM/S/M/IE.V
If I try to uninstal the KB912812 update it warns of unstable problems with
about 9 other programs and undates. So I didn't go there at present.
