Knowledge Base FAQ Item #1100035


Q1100035: We are using the component within HTML/Javascript code. The browser is Internet Explorer. Each time the ActiveX control is loaded by the browser, a security warning is displayed. Have you any suggestion to remove this message?

There are basically two ways to avoid prompting:

  • Add the website that hosts the ActiveX component to the trusted sites of all Internet Explorers. This would need some automatic configuration on your LAN's Internet Explorers, for instance through Group Policy (recommended) or through logon script. This way you only decrease Internet Explorer security for that particular site. Security for all other sites remain the same. This solution only works as long as the ActiveXperts Network Component users are part of your network.
  • You can sign the component (the actual AxNetwork32.dll). If you only use the component for internal use (i.e. in your network), you can use the standard Windows Certificate Server (part of Win2000 and higher). For more more information on signing an ActiveX component yourself, see If the component is used outside your network, you should use a public Certificate Authority, for instance Verisign.
    ActiveXperts Software does not offer facilities to sign ActiveX COM/OLE components.
