The ActiveX is digitally signed and has been marked as safe for scripting.
I have seen variations of this issue arise on other posts but no-one seems to have a programmatic solution to the problem. I believe the issue also only arise with IE7+ and not IE6.
One solution but not ideal is to change the IE security setting from disabled to either prompt or enabled for "Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe for scripting". This solution is not ideal as I would not expect every user who runs the ActiveX to perform this action.
I have not listed any code snippets as the code works when the action in the above paragraph is performed therefore the issue can not be within the code as such.
