At one of my sites with multiple Terminal Servers, they are attempting to access the site of their ISP to monitor their internet/mpls usage. The site attempts to install the Crystal Report Active X control, but once I select Install it simply fails and displays the Red X. Ive added the domain to the trusted sites list via gpo and nothing. Tried on multiple user accounts, including Domain Admin and running IE elevated.
Any Ideas?

Pertaining to the first link, Im actually using IE8, and ive already attempting the change to the Security settings with no results.
The second link ive seen, but am unsure how to acquire the ActiveXViewer.cab to manually register the .DLL's.

I saw all of these sites from search results, but werent much of a help. I went ahead and deployed the ActiveX control on a Server 2003 TS without issue, and told the EU to use that Server to pull the report. Its only one user that needs access not multiple, so this is a viable solution. Point Awarded for resolution attempt.
Thanks for your help.
