Hello,

I have an activeX component, that when loaded onto a server, will run and exectue on the user's browser perfectly.

However, when i test it on my local machine (i.e.  http://localhost/webapp) the component wont load.. its just, nothing happens.

anyone know why?

Thanks.

Are your internet/intranet security settings .  Often times activeX will error out for security reasons.

Hi alexthecodepoet, I had this problem on windows loading a flash app on localhost - it was only after I installed SP2 with all of it's new internet security settings it includes. I did some digging a while back and found this tech-note; http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/knowledgebase/index.cfm?id=tn_19542 
that should hopefully help you fix your problem even if it is not flash related.

Cheers.

Hi Frube,

I tried changing my security settings and putting the mark of the web on the page, but that still did not fix it... :(


Any other suggestions?

frube,

you started me on the right track, so thanks for the help.

you actually have to allow CASPOL to trust the website, and then use javascript to start the activex component automatically
