ActiveX controls

By TechKid ·
I have a network where everytime we need to install an ActiveX Control (which is quite often for some of the mortgage lenders we use) my users can't install it because they don't have admin rights to their machine. Is there any way (I've looked at gpo's but didn't see anything) to allow domain users to install ActiveX Controls from all of these lenders? I'm calling one of the lenders now but thought I'd throw this out there.

Thanks

This is a Security issue and you should start by checking into if you want to change the user rights to allow them to be able to install software

You could create a group and give permissions to too see Security for Domain in TR or Help in OS

maybe you can make 'run as' work for you somehow to install the stuff with admin rights?

How is the network configured? Is it an actaul server or is it just a workgroup and each computer has its own connection?

If each computer has its own connection, then you will have to log in as the administrator in each computer.

Go to "Control Panel". Then go to "Administrative Tools", then head to "Computer Management" and then lastly go to "Users".

You should see the user name, Right-Click it and go to properties. Go over to the "Member of" tab and you can either either add a new group being either "Administrators" or "Power Users". I believe both of these groups will alow active X downloading.

Just repeat that for each box in the network for every user.

If it still doesn't work, the check your security setting in Internet explorer by going to Tools> Internet Options

------------------------------------------------

If you are running a server, you will have to go to your Domain controller and go through all the user accounts and make sure they have appropriate security levels.

I found out it's not only ActiveX that they need permission to install but also downloadable software from websites. There are far too many lenders and growing each day to create msi packages for each of them so...
