what are some reasons ActiveX would not load in IE6 and IE7 browsers ?

it is used like this:
<html><body>
<script src=script.js></script>
</body></html>
and script.js that contains document.write("<OBJECT ....></OBJECT>");

ActiveX cab is not a problem, it used to work ok

have you tried embedding the object tag info directly in the page rather than using the script to see if that makes a difference?
Is your classid correct?
Is your path to the active x object correct? Check the upper/lowercase

When you say it does not load, what happens?

yes, classid is correct, path to cab is correct.
here is a demo http://www.kupid.com/chat2.php

some webpage said following IE options need to be enabled:
- Script ActiveX controls marked safe for scripting
- Download Signed ActiveX
- Enable ActiveX controls and plugins
- Active scripting

are there some other need-to-be-enabled IE7 / IE6 options ?

Have you had any luck?
Also try comparing the ones that work with the ones that don't work, to see if they all have all the latest MS updates?
