How to enable ActiveX

Internet Explorer

Internet Explorer (SP2) displays an Information Bar (top of the web page just below the address bar) with information about downloads and blocked content such as pop-up windows, JavaScript, applets and ActiveX plugins. This information helps to avoid potentially harmful files that you might otherwise accept from the Internet. After updating to SP2 the settings will be set for the highest security possible, so you will need to adjust your security settings.

ArtistScope (Copysafe), like Macromedia (Flash) and Microsoft, sign their plugins and installers with a digital certificate known as Authenticode. Authenticode certificates validate the identity of software developers via top level authorities such as Thawte and Verisign. They can be applied by the software's owner only and can be trusted.

Allow ActiveX signed with Authenticode certificate
  1. Open Internet Explorer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. On the Security tab, click Custom Level.
The Default Level will automatically set your security level to trust signed controls, but prompt for all others that are not signed.. If you are on a networked workstation you may be unable to change this setting, your administrator might have control over the setting. To check and see what these settings are, or to define your own, click on Custom Level.

Stop blocking software downloads with the Information Bar

This procedure will allow Web sites to automatically prompt you when downloading files and software (bypassing the Information Bar).
  • Open Internet Explorer.
  • On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  • On the Security tab, click Custom Level.
  • Do one or both of the following:
  • Click Enable for all options involving Authenticode and trusted certificates.
  • Click Prompt for all options that are untrusted.
To install the ActiveX:
  1. Click the Information Bar.
  2. Click Install Software.
