Installing activeX controls as normal user...

Hello,
I am trying to find a way of enabling normal users (either by ADS or otherwise) to be able to download and install activeX controls from a web page and install and run them. I have a utility that will relax the registry to allow this but what key do I need to relax for this. Basically the activeX in question goes into downloaded program files for IE for that user.

Any help appreciated.

Try these:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TypeLib\
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\

So if I give a normal user full control permissions on that registry key they will be able to dowload and install activeX's etc etc without any problems???

If the ActiveX control is compiled into a .CAB (cabinet) file and the client is allowed to install ActiveX then all you need to do is to make the correct OBJECT tag and it should work properly.

Hmmm,
But the gpo in the active directory is very restrictive here. I have found a way to this per machine using an ADS application rollout by making the .CAB into a .MSI instead. This is a neat way of doing it per machine, but per user is another matter!!!!
