Cant install Activex Viewer for Crystal Reports in IE7. Using XP Pro SP2 IE7
Get message "Cant create Activex object".
Tried to delete activex veiwer using Tools>Internet Options>Programs> .
Crystal reports activex shows up but the "delete" button wont become active in IE
Searched for crviewer.dll to delete it but it isn't found.
This just started for no reason and is a PITA.
Have demo coming up and need it to work .. Murphys law I guess.

You generally need admin permissions to install ActiveX components.

You may also have some virus software or IE protections set to deny installation of ActiveX controls.

This was fixed by lowering the security in IE to lowest possible. THis was not necessary before and is an indication of the typical abuse we suffer at the hands of MS when we get updates that fix some things and break others.
