Major ActiveX Domain issue. NOT LOCAL PC ISSUE

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by joe.valentine@gmail.com, Feb 3, 2006.

    Network info:

    SBS 2003 as DC (40 users) + 1 Member Server (print/file server)
    SQL Server 2000
    All PC's running WindowsXP SP2
    All network browsers are Internet Explorer 6

    Issue:

    PC's are not able to install ActiveX controls. "Install ActiveX
    control" is not listed in the options on the Information bar. "Your
    security options will not allow this software to install" is reported.



    Additional Facts:

    Domain policy is set to allow specified ActiveX controls dependant on
    the controls ClassID and name. Policy is set at the Domain security
    level for all authenticated users. (Not on a OU or Group)

    Network PC's are all set to allow ALL activex controls to install
    (obviously dependant on the domain security policy)

    Intranet sites where ActiveX controls are being installed from have
    been added to "trusted sites" list in Internet Explorer.

    (NOTE: I am not a web developer and know nothing about the sites
    themselves.)


    Anyone have any ideas?

    Your problem is here
    "Domain policy is set to allow specified ActiveX controls dependant on
    the controls ClassID and name. Policy is set at the Domain security
    level for all authenticated users. (Not on a OU or Group)"

    And it is working perfectly. It is a domain policy so that means anyone who
    logs into the domain will not be able to download activeX. Every active X
    control is different. Say for example you download 3 times from MS 3
    different files or updates, you will have 3 different activeX controls.

    It is not working perfectly, because I have set the domain to allow
    specified controls after matching ClassID's and Names. Every ActiveX
    Control has its own unique ClassID however, every instance of that
    control contains its specific ClassID. Thus my issue:

    Domain policy is set to disallow all ActiveX controls EXCEPT those
    specified in the policy.
    The end users are unable to download and install the specified controls.
