I'm having a problem with active X  and VNC.

Some of our employee's check job sites and computers by logging in with VNC. All the time either an Active X windows pops up or a link to click to install VNC with no active x appears.
I have installed the VNC with no Active X and the link still shows up (even after a reboot).
I have set the site that they log into for the VNC connects as a local intranet site and set the security level as low for all local sites.
I'm still having the same issue.
Is there anyway to get Active X to work on pc's were the user doesn't have local admin rights?

The computers are running IE8 and XP Pro.

In Windows Vista em Higher, ActiveX can be installed for the current user only. All settings go to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER hive of the Registry.
With XP, ActiveX is installed only in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. This means that only Administrators can install because only Administrators can create new keys there.

hmm ok.

Is there a way then to either package up the activeX into either an MSI or something so I can do a runas while the user is logged in to install the activeX contoller?

Thanks pasolo,

this has put me in the correct direction. Microsoft's pages are a little out of date but I am still able to figure it out.

The Microsoft link got me where I needed to go and from there was able to figure out what I need to do. The Microsoft links are old and out of date but the theory/concept still stands behind the old solutions, which allowed me to find the answer.
