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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
