OWA Active X Prompt
Posted on 2006-04-28
I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post. It's mainly concerning OWA, but also affects other sites...
In OWA, when my users reply and the message pops up, I get:
"Press SPACEBAR or ENTER to activate and use this control".
Doing so enables the control so that I can reply to the message.
Googling reveals that this is an MS Windows XP/IE Update and affects many Active X controls.
Does anyone have a workaround? As I understand, uninstalling the MS update may prevent further IE updates from being applied.
I note that web designers may re-code to prevent this message from appearing. If this is the case, will OWA be updated?
Are my OWA users going to have to put up with this or is there any hope?
