    Default IE Mistaking Java code for ActiveX?

    Hi

    I have a new user on my website - it's password protected etc. and I'm just giving them the initial walkthrough. I have a java applet that plots charts and when he goes to this page he gets no chart and at the bottom of the pages there's a bar with the message

    "Internet Explorer blocked this website from installing an ActiveX control. What's the risk?" and then there's a button to say Install.

    I said, it's just for you to permission running the java applet but his IT guy is saying that java doesn't trigger warnings about ActiveX controls so he's nixing the approval. Just wondering if anyone can advise on this?

    Thanks

    Andrew

    That's different from the message I get with IE when opening an html page with an applet:
    IE restricted this webpage from running scripts or ActiveX controls


    Try using another browser.

    Hi Norm

    the site is written in visual studio with asp pages .aspx and a signed java applet. Are you saying that IE gives this message for either scripts or ActiveX controls but not for java applets?

    Hi Norm

    just read your post again and I think I misunderstood. I think you're saying that on your IE when you run an html page with a java applet you get the message

    "IE restricted this webpage from running scripts or ActiveX controls"

    ie/ it doesn't mention that you're trying to run a java applet and refers to scripts or ActiveX controls instead?

    Hi

    so I got a different message, but both messages mentioned preventing running ActiveX controls when it was Java that was being run. Can anyone advise whether this is a general behavior of IE now?

    I'd be happy to suggest my user use another browser, but he works in a company and works in their IT rules and IE will be their default browser and probably is the only one he has installed.

    Default [Solved] Re: IE Mistaking Java code for ActiveX?

    Hi All

    thanks for the help. Seems java was out of date on the user's PC so it was being blocked. Shame these messages can't be more explanatory as to the problem!

    Cheers..
