Hi,

We have this application which runs from a website and requires a CAB to install. We have Vista pc's with UAC enabled.
How can we make sure this cab-file can install without disabling UAC or giving administrative priviliges? Pc is member of domain in which Windows 2008 & 2003 DC's.

Configure the trusted site and activex control in the GPO and add the site in it.

 Also configure the active X control also. which will enable to run any active X scripts run.

Please check the below link to configure trusted sites, Intranet sites in GPO

http://www.windowstricks.in/2010/11/configuring-trusted-website-and-activex.html

Note: The value field can take the following values:
• (Value = 1) Intranet zone,
• (Value = 2) Trusted Sites zone,
• (Value = 3) Internet zone
(Value = 4) Restricted Sites zone

Reference: for cab file installation

Note: the activex is a ocx, not a cab, right?

You cannot configure that in IE options. You will need to deploy that software using software deployment methods or scripts. To get further help here, we would need details or, at best, access to that site itself.

Please clarify since 2 options are there:
1,activexinstaller service: the site is in it already
2,installing in software deployment: how can I fetch the cab file, it prompts for install but I don't find it on my local disk?

3,activex is an ocx-file, the installation prompts for a cab-file ...

In 2. you ask me for details, while I asked you first "To get further help here, we would need details or, at best, access to that site itself" - I am afraid it's your turn :)
