Deploy ActiveX with SMS

Posted on 2004-10-02

How can I deploy an activex object with SMS without users getting that security prompt in IE when they try and view the web page that needs the activex component.

What I mean here is that if I downlaod the component on a pc through IE, it works fine and doesn't prompt the user once downlaoded.

If I deploy it with SMS with a MSI file it will install it, but then the user gets a security warning every time they try and view that page. Kind of like it puts it in the my computer zone instead of the internet zone.

How can I deploy this activex object and it act just like it came down from the internet?

I wouldn't do it through SMS, I would create a GPO then do a software deployment through there.  This will put it in the internet zone for you.

Thanks for the points.  A word of advice when doing GPO Software deployment.  Use computer configuration, not the User configuration.

After using the computer configuration, do

Software settings >  Software installation  >  then create a package with your MSI file.  Make sure you use, ASSIGN in the deloyment tab in your software package deployment properties page.
