web-based application and ActiveX-controls

Question: web-based application and ActiveX-controls

For the pharmacy I have made an application to support a drug preparation. This application is used in public pharmacies as well as in hospitals and industry.
This is a web-based application. So the installation has been done on the server with a configuration within IIS.
The clients start the application in InternetExplorer.
Why InternetExplorer? Because the client's preparation protocols, raw materials need to be weighed and labels must be printed. Hereby I use self-programmed ActiveX controls. And other browsers do not support ActiveX controls.
The web-based application is generally found to be good.
As Edge is increasingly "pushing", InternetExplorer seems to be the cornerstone, as well as the application described above.
My questions are now:
- How long are web-based applications still supported?
- Will Edge support ActiveX controls in the future?
- Is there an alternative?
I would appreciate if there were sound answers to the above questions.
Sincerely,
Wim

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm receiving the following messages when using IE6: "Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page. As a result the page may not display correctly."

Another problem is, when logging onto Yahoo, I'm receiving the following message: "The browser you're using refuses to sign in. (cookies rejected)"

Thanks in advance. Paul

Answer:ActiveX Controls

You are getting these messages because you have made a sound judgement about your security settings---you have restricted running activeX and allowing cookies. You may wish to put Yahoo into your safe zone, as well as whatever else you are trying to access that you TRUST COMPLETELY, and allow both activeX to run and cookies to be accepted for these.

Question: Activex controls

Hi..
I am using Windows 7 Ultimate. I am protecting it with Bitdefender total security 2010. It worked fine for a quiet long days. recently i had installed 123 word to pdf converter. After that windows gadgeds doesn't work good and my total security doesn't open. It seems to work fine, but when opened it there i got an error message,

One or more ActiveX controls could not be displayed because either:

1. Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page, or
2. You have blocked a publisher of one of the controls

As a result, the page may not display correctly.

when i pressed ok button, All i got is a white screen. I thought it was due to that converter then i unistalled it, till i have the same problem. I don't know what to do.. Any help??? Pls..

Question: Activex Controls

There are a couple of "adult style"websites that I would like to visit but they require me to d/l their ActiveX control first.  I am a newbie to computer security programs but I have done enough reading to know that there is a good likelyhood that an unwanted program would be attached to their activex control.Please don't judge me too harshly, but I would not mind taking a small risk of clicking on their activex d/l as long as I could reduce it to as small as possible.My system is an e-machine with XP home.  I use the IE browser.I have the following security:1. Norton IS 2008 which I bought2. Spyblaster 4.0 which I d/l for free a few days ago3. ESET online scanner  the free versionI ran a scan with all three a few days ago and found no problems.I also recently d/l Adobe Flash Player 9 ActivexI guess that my questions are:1. Should I d/l some additional security programs first?2. If one of my security programs detect a dangerous add on program will it block installation of the complete activex control and thus entry to the websites or just the dangerous, unwanted part?3. Should I not take the risk, no matter how small?4. Are these security systems compatible with each other?Thanks,Mark

We have used Ocx Controls in the Web Pages. These ocx controls are built in Visual Basic 6.0. These OCX controls are embeded in <OBJECT> tags in the ASP Web pages. For the application to run, security settings in the "Internet Options" are defaulted to low and all the options concerning the Activex Controls are enabled. And now when an Internet explorer Update is done all the Activex Controls fail to Load.

Is there any way that we can stay current with the version update of IE and still make Ocx controls to load in the web pages?
if anybody has evolved a workaround to solve the problem of "OCX controls not loading" please reply to the post.

Thanks in advance,

How do I review and uninstall ActiveX Controls in Windows XP? Would it be the same as uninstalling programs? Or do I just have to find the control and delete it? If so, where are ActiveX controls typically installed. Thank you in advance.
 

Answer:ActiveX controls

Technically, ActiveX Controls aren't programs but a component technology.

It's not the same as uninstalling programs.

They are generally located at C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files

You can right-click and select properties for more information and to update or delete them.

Answer:ActiveX controls

You said you changed the settings in tools. Lets double check:
Go to tools/Internet options and choose the Security tab. Select Internet and click on custom settings. Click enable on all the activex control settings.

If that does not work, than do you have a another program that is also blocking activex controls. Such as Zonealarm?

Apparently that is a 'residue file' from some Adobe (?) software having used their download manager.

Hi, I keep getting this dialog box from IE that says:

"Do you want to allow software such as ActiveX controls and plug-ins to run?"

I have never has this happened before. This dialog box keeps popping up every time I change screens, I have been clicking on the YES box because I'm assuming that's the direction I should take.

How can I get rid of this annoyance and what does it mean.

Thanks,

Answer:ActiveX controls

ActiveX controls are small programs that are downloaded to allow your internet browser to run "some" internet application properly.
Example: VPN or remote computer connections through your browser, internet picture editing, online programs that do the job of other programs like Microsoft's internet exchange which acts as a internet version of Outlook email.

Now that you understand what activeX controls are, you can see that they
can be very dangerous especially if malware or viruses use them for harmful purposes,
but they can be very helpful for doing such things as I pointed out in the above paragraph.

Here is another angle on what activeX controls do: http://www.microsoft.com/protect/terms/activex.aspx
How to disable them:
"START" menu > "Control Panel" > "Internet Options" > "Security" tab > go down to "Custom Level" > scroll down to "ActiveX controls and plug-ins" > "Disable"

How to delete previously installed activeX controls:
Open "Internet Explorer" > "Tools" menu > "Manage Add-ons" > a list of activeX controls should come up and you can select any and press "Disable"

When users encounter an ActiveX control for the first time, they will see a gold bar asking if they want to use the control. Users can then selectively allow or prevent running the control.

Gmail requires ActiveX controls to be enabled

Gmail requires ActiveX controls to be enabled

Your browser seems to be Internet Explorer, and ActiveX seems to be disabled. Gmail's standard view requires ActiveX to be enabled in order to operate.

To use Gmail's standard view, enable ActiveX controls in Internet Explorer. You can do this by going to the Tools menu, selecting Internet Options, Security tab, Internet zone, and either select the Default Level, or selecting Custom Level and scrolling down to "Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins" and selecting Enable. (it was enabled already)

After enabling ActiveX controls, try again. (I did, no luck)

Answer:Solved: ActiveX Controls

I believe that IE, and Windows itself, need Active X to function properly (see this Wikipedia article); http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ActiveX

I have no idea how many such controls are needed, nor how to tell a 'good' one from a 'bad' one! As mentioned in the article, the controls are necessary but, unfortunately, are frequently used to install malware, which is one of the reasons why I stopped using IE some time ago.

I am trying to allow users to install a Crystal Reports ActiveX control, which enables them to view content in Internet Explorer. By default the User group in Windows does not allow for ActiveX installation (have to be at least power user), which is why you have to use the group policy. I have figured out how to make this work, but the problem is that the control is not installing right.

There are 4 controls that are installed when you visit the webpage that needs the control, which actually only uses 2 different .cab files. Microsoft says that you can use Visual Studio Installer 1.1 to package files into an .msi file. The .msi file is needed to insert in the Software Installation part of the Group Policy. I took the .cab file and added it to my project in Visual Studio and packaged it as an .msi file and placed it on a shared network drive. When the user now visits the website, the msi installation process starts (which it should), and installs the file. However, this is where it goes wrong. Instead of installing the control, placing files in the system directory, it only creates a folder in Progam Files and simply inserts the .cab file into it. It doesn't actually install the control, only places a .cab file in a folder...never extracting it and installing.

Can anyone help?

Hi.
I don't know if this is the right forum for my problem.
Anyway,
I have a problem with my Windows Services.
Each time when I launch Windows Services window, I get a warning:

One or more activex controls could not be displayed because either:
1. your current security settings prohibit running activex
controls on this page, or
2. you have blocked a publisher of one of the controls.
as a result, the page may not display correctly.

The warning pop-up opens only when I click on Extended tab.
The problem has nothing to do with IE security, because I can open pages with ActiveX controls on them and so.

I have installed Spybot spyware/malware removal tool. Then uninstalled it.
I'm not sure if this is the cause of the problem. But I presume it is.
So, may be someone was facing the same problem and knows the cause for it.
Thanks.

Answer:One or more activex controls could not be displayed because either

Hi - I had the exact same problem, also my windows sidebar gadgets wouldn't display properly.

You should delete 1 extra (parasite) zone from

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\

with pseudo-graphic number, you'll see it before zone number 0.
It seems this is a bug of Adobe flash player update, though I am not sure.

The pseudo-graphic number I'm speaking of before zone number 0 looks like a miniature upper case "L".
(copied from another forum)

Delete that registry entry and all is well.

Good Luck

I've been trying to adjust my computer today and ended up making things worse. There are web pages that I cannot view because the following message appears: "Your security settings do not allow web sites to use ActiveX controls installed on your computer. This page may not display correctly. Click here for options"

Trouble is, when I click there for options, there isn't a real response as to how to fix this.
I've been surfing for hours in hopes to find a solution, to no avail.

I have tried the recommended procedure as follows but it doesn't work (see italics)

Turn off the Information Bar for ActiveX controls

This procedure will allow Web sites to automatically prompt you when downloading software, bypassing the Information Bar.

Open Internet Explorer.

Click Tools on the menu bar.

Click Internet Options...
The Internet Options window appears.

Click the Security tab.

Click the Custom Level... button.
The Security Settings window appears.

Locate ActiveX controls and plug-ins in the Settings: list.

Click to select Enable under Automatic prompting for ActiveX controls.

Click the OK button.
A Warning! message appears.

Click the Yes button to change the security settings for the zone.

Click the OK button.

You will now receive prompts directly from a Web site if it needs to download software to your computer.

I'm at my wits end. I've been at it for 5 hours. Please help
 

Answer:Problem with ActiveX controls

Is Windows XP up-to-date with the SP3 upgrade and all the post-SP3 updates?

Are you using Internet Explorer 6, 7, or 8?

Do you have Adobe Flash Player ActiveX 10.1.102.64 and Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0.24 installed? If you don't, click the green icon at each site to download and save them, then close all open windows, then install them, then restart the computer.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Open an Internet Explorer window, then click Tools - Internet Options - Security(tab).

Set all 4 zones to "Default Level", then click Apply.

Close the Internet Explorer window, then reopen it.

Hey all,

I'm having a problem with my office PC, and as far as I can tell, it has to do with ActiveX. I'm running Windows 2000 Pro, latest SP. I think a virus is fairly unlikely --security here at work is strict.

Here are my symptoms:
-I can't start IE from MSN (clicking a link does nothing).
-Any link in IE marked target="_blank" does nothing.
-Starting an MP3 (associated with WMP) by double-clicking it opens WMP but not the file. Selecting Open With| WMP does open WMP and open the file.
-Even with all ActiveX IE settings set to Prompt, ActiveX controls don't seem to work: Windows update keeps scanning forever, Symantec's online virus scan says that the ActiveX load fails, etc.

Does anybody have any clue what could be wrong here?

Thanks,
cronopio.

Answer:Need ActiveX controls back

Does the title of the box with the error say Microsoft Internet Explorer?

Go into the registry and find this key
HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Internet Settings \ Zones \ 0

In the right pane, you will see a lot of numbers. For the entry 1200, change the last number to 0 (double click it to change from whatever is there to 0)

Then find this key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Internet Settings \ Zones \ 0
Again, in the right pane look for 1200 and double click it so the last number, which is the decimal number can be changed to 0

Reboot and the error should be gone.

Answer:ActiveX controls set to high.

Your activeX controls are under the internet explorer properties. Right-click internet explorer and go to properties. Go to the security tab and under that tab you can click custom level. The activeX controls are the list that pops up, just have to look for them. Be careful what you disable or enable. If you set the security to low then anything from any site you visit will be able to install with out your knowledge. Hope this helps

OK, my problem started when I realized that I had a bunch of spyware/adware on my computer. I did everything I could find online to remove all of it (Hijack this, Adaware, etc). As far as I know, it has all been removed. In the wake of all that, I lost the ability to scan with Norton AV (2003). I got the warning "current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page." So, I downloaded and installed NAV 2005 ---> same problem. I've called Norton tech support about 5 times, but nothing they suggest will fix it. Of course, I tried changing my internet security settings, but even when set to "LOW" for all zones, I got the same error. Finally, I found that I could edit a registry key to change the security level for "My Computer," so I did that end the error doesn't pop up. However, Norton still won't run properly. The window pops up, but one pane is grayed out, as though ActiveX controls still aren't working. I found a damaged ActiveX control in the "Downloaded Program Files" (one of the dll's that it referenced was damaged). For better or worse, I removed that control.

What do I need to do to get Norton AV to start correctly? It seems that I've lost some type of ActiveX control and need to reinstall or something. I'm running WinXP, SP2, so I can't seem to uninstall/reinstall IE6.

Thanks,

Answer:Security Settings - ActiveX controls

Are you the computer administrator? I beleive that only admins can change those settings. The default level should work as long as you haveing changed said default. IE is left pretty much open if you don't do anything to it. If you are using SP2, then try the security center as well.

Hello all, thanks ahead of time for any help/advice you can lend.

Recently we had a client whose silverlight was not functioning properly in internet explorer 7 on a windows xp sp2 machine although it will work in firefox. Norton anti virus and superantispyware is also installed on this machine. The program was installed and the activex control was enabled. It would keep asking me to install silverlight.

When I atttempted to delete that addon, I was not capable of doing so and I could not access the tools/internet option feature. When I attempted to access this it gave me the following error:

I found several fixes for this including an issue with Spypot S&d and some registry fixes. These did not work.

I then reverted back to IE6 and was able to access the internet options through the browser, but silverlight would not work.

I reinstalled IE7 and it was back to the way it was before.

Have a Windows 2000 computer with Internet Explorer 6.0. We had problems with Outlook 2002 and tried reinstalling our old Outlook 98, which didn't work. Somehow during this, Internet Explorer got messed up cause it tried to install 5.0 from the older Outlook CD.

Now it still shows version IE6.0, but when I try to go to the Microsoft Windows update on the web, as it begins to check my computer I get the message:

"Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page. As a result, the page may not display correctly."

It won't let me do anything further. Help!
 

Answer:Prohibited from running ActiveX controls

On the Tools menu in Internet Explorer, click Internet Options.
On the Security tab, click Internet, and then click Custom Level.
Under Download Signed ActiveX Controls, click Enable or Prompt.
Click OK, and then click Yes.
Click OK.

Every time I open Nero Burning ROM (v11, I believe... new in June 2013), it begins to display a webpage but then I get an error message:"One or more ActiveX controls could not be displayed because:1) Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page, or2) You have blocked a publisher of one of the controls. As a result, the page may not display correctly."I never use IE, but I know that I am running an up-to-date version. I've never really played around with the default settings. To fix this, I've tried enabling all the add-ons and even unchecking "filter ActiveX". I'm lost.

Answer:Nero ActiveX controls disabled?

See if any of these work.http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...

I have a classroom with computers running VB6 on Windows 2000 Pro on a Windows 2000 domain. The members of the DOMAIN USERS group cannot load ActiveX in VB because of permission restrictions default by the Users Group in the Windows 2000 domain environment. If the users are Power Users or Administrators they can develop and run the ActiveX controls with no problem. I don't want to make the users members of the Power Users group because that gives them too many privileges. How can I allow members of the Domain Users Group to run ActiveX control in VB6? What permissions should I modify so that Windows 2000 allows Domain Users to run ActiveX controls without making them Power Users? Thanks....
 

Answer:Domain users cannot run ActiveX controls....

Set up an audit on the group and then view the error logs to determine which permissions they are being denied in the security section.

After more thought I think this is more an OS function and definately a security function set up and patched for obvious reasons. I also believe there is no way to get around this restriction.

Kids have been on my computer and all of a sudden a number of webistes will not load. All seem to require ActiveX controls e.g. Macromedia Flash.Have checked my IE security settings and reset to defaults ensuring that ActiveX prompts are set to enable as per default. No Joy!Have contacted AVG just in case it was a firewall problem but switched off firewall and still no difference.Cannot install Hijack This as site is blocked - Windows info bar appears very briefly (1 sec) and disappears again.Used PC Pitstop to see if ActiveX controls were enabled but site informs me that ActiveX is disabled despite IE saying they are enabled.Any suggestions?

Answer:ActiveX Controls No Longer Active

What version of Windows?If XP then a "System Restore" to before the problem is the easiest option.

I have three copies of JRE 1.5.0, three copies of JRE 1.6.0, and two copies of Office Update Installation Engine in my ActiveX folder (i.e. C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files). Why are there duplicates and more importantly, how may I *safely* remove the duplicates?

I am trying to do a student activation of a program i have but when i click the activation button the page that it loads does not load how it should it just loads all white with one button that does nothing.
when i right click on the white window and paste it into internet explorer i get this message

"internet explorer restricted this webpage from running scripts or activex controls"
with a allow blocked "content button" next to it

when i click the allow blocked "content button"

i get a pop up that says
"scripts are usually safe. do you want to allow scripts to run"
when i click
"Yes"
it comes up again
and i push
"Yes" again

and it loads the page inside of internet explorer how it should look with all the places for me to put in my info and what not. but when i push the finished button on this page it does not activate the student copy.

what i believe i have to do is get the page to load how it should with the program and not internet explorer but i do not know how to get it to run "scripts or activex controls" on offline pages

does anyone know how to do this?
i asked around at school but no one else has had this problem.

Thank you for your time
and i hope someone here can help me with this problem.

Hey sorry if this question has been posted before but I am having major trouble with my pc . I use Internet Cleanup to clean up my Internet files recently I have been having problems with the ActiveX Erase section. When it is scanning for ActiveX Controls it finds 8 of them but....I erased the Oscashe folder and the Downloaded Program files where the others usually are is empty. When I try to erase the 8 that are left the program freezes and loxks forcing me to end the program. Is ther any other way to search for these active X contraols that could be affecting my system. By the way I am running Office XP Pro...the log file says that there was an error in the user32.dll??? file think thats what it is. THnka you for any help ANYONE can give it is greatly appreciated.
 

Answer:ActiveX Controls and Internet Cleanup

Hiya and welcome

Are you saying you have manually deleted all the ActiveX controls in the Download folder?

If so, this could be the cause of some problems. They are needed to access Web Pages, and stuff that is used offline, such as Codecs for Media Player.

Where are the 8 that it cannot delete, and what are they called? These may be the ones that are needed by your system. Not all ActiveX files are harmful.

This folder that you erased: Oscashe. What was the destination of the folder?

Regards

eddie

Click Tools and then click Internet OptionsClick the Security tabClick the Custom Level buttonScroll down the list and click the Enable radio buttons to all items you see listed under the ActiveX controls and plug-ins headingThis should enable your browser to load ActiveX content. Good luck!

I've closed my browser. I have even used the very useful app unlocker which can't detect a
locking handle. I want as much adobe material off my PC as possible. I hate that company now. Apparently one of the files I'm trying to delete has a serious security exploit.

This post is slightly related to my one about getting PDF files but I think merits its own thread.

If anybody can help me get this BS off my PC I would really appreciate it.
 

Answer:I can't delete acrobats activeX controls

Whoops. Sorry guys, just realized how to do it. I have this (apparently bad) habbit of trying to delete everything manually.

I still dislike Adobe.
