ActiveX Control in Netscape

I have an ActiveX control which has been digitally signed and which a user can successfully download into their IE browser across the web. However, this doesn't work for other, non-IE  browsers such as Netscape. I understand however it's now possible to run ActiveX controls in Netscape.

I enclose the IE HTML code below. What do I need to change so it will work in Netscape also?

<object classid="CLSID:5220CB21-C88D-11CF-B347-00AA00A28331">
    <param name="LPKPath" value="AGauge.lpk">
    <embed src="AGauge.lpk">
</object>

<object id="AGauge" classid="CLSID:B2E0C2EA-A543-11CF-BC8C-207402C10627" codebase="AGauge.cab" width="119" height="117">
 <PARAM name="_Version" value="131081">
 <PARAM name="_ExtentX" value="3149">
 <PARAM name="_ExtentY" value="3096">
 <PARAM name="_StockProps" value="70">
 <!--parameters deleted-->
</OBJECT>

Also found this interesting, though I have no personal experience with it, so offering as information only.

Hopefully others more informed about Netscape and ActiveX controls and plugins will be here to help you further if what I've provided doesn't help you resolve this roadblock.

Asta,

Thanks for the info. Things have moved on since I posted my question. After having tested the use of the ActiveX on a number of different clients, and having experienced a number of problems (even with IE) I have decided to remove the ActiveX from my page and use a lower tech HTML solution instead - not as pretty, but at least I can be sure it will work, regardless of client.

Thanks for your help anyway.

Highfive + Dolby Voice = No More Audio Complaints!

Poor audio quality is one of the top reasons people don’t use video conferencing. Get the crispest, clearest audio powered by Dolby Voice in every meeting. Highfive and Dolby Voice deliver the best video conferencing and audio experience for every meeting and every room.

Hi, Stevod.

Thanks for the update.  How would you like to close this item?  The information provided may help others, since it is pertinent and does answer your question.  However, it wasn't the solution you were seeking so you may wish to post a zero point question in the Community Support topic area and request a partial or full refund and ask that they move this question to our PAQ (Previously Asked Questions database) where it can help others who also encounter this roadblock.  You also have the option to award points to me partially or none at all.

Best wishes,

Meant to include this on Netscape, developer issues and new version info.  You'll find a wealth of developer information and links within it as well; includes Javascript, CSS, html, and other insights.
