My organization uses Lotus Notes as email based application, and we have the facility to connect to our inboxes from home through Web Mail. I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and IE 8, everytime I access my inbox, it ask me to install a certain activeX to support some functionality in reviewing my messages, when I try to install, IE complains that dwa8w.cab doesn't have a verified publisher and it can not be installed. I tried several solutions I found online, and none have worked. Can we remedy this please ? Many thanks in advance.

Did you try with Firefox, just to make sure that it should work?

Can you try to force IE to accept the installer, e.g. by lowering the protection level?

I tried that, and also accepting unsigned activeX, and nothing worked yet. By the way it's a fresh installation of Windows 7, not sure if that is relecant to solve the problem.

So the installation wasn't completely fresh, eh? ;-))

So it doesn't work with Firefox??

Which Notes release do you use? I don't know if this is related to this page: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21248058 but maybe there are some relevant items there.

It's fresh installation, but usualy the first thing I do after installing windows is to make sure is fully updated, and also install Java and Flash. So it's still a fresh installation.

The provided link didn't have much related. I installed FireFox and the same issue arise.

Lotus Domino Server is 8.5.2, and I'm connecting to it from my house through IE8.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I reviewed the link again, more carefully. It talks about Domino 7, but somehow it's the same idea, yet, not sure how to go from there.

If it even doesn't work in Firefox, there's got to be a problem elsewhere. Some long shots:
- server access permissions?
- local permissions, are you administrator?
- does it work when you run IE8 in Admin-mode?

Seen that, been there and done that, right before posting a question here, and if you read the comments down, you'll find that it worked for some people and others no, guess I'm from the other people. In any case, the way I see it, the solution may not be here, and I'm giving up slowly.

The situation still the same, no solution so far, however I'm accepting the answer for the efforts.

Thanks anyway.
