Virtualized ActiveX won't load in Internet Explorer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have sequenced some ActiveX components for IP Webcams with APP-V 5.0 HF4, but when published globally, the activeX won't load in Internet Explorer 10.

    If I launch IE with the /appvve:PackageId_VersionId , it works like a charm.

    Has anyone experienced the same kind of issue?
    From SP2 on, the ActiveX should load automatically when launching IE, right?

    thanks for you help

  • Craft your shortcut to launch IE with the -noframemerging switch to force IE to create a new instance instead of using the already running process, e.g:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe -noframemerging http://wherever.com

  • It should do yes, but it does not work for all plugins. Flash and Shockwave work correctly for example, but not Java.

    Verify in your manifest/config xml files that the ActiveX and/or BrowserHelperObject extensions are registered. If they are but it is still not working, then /appvve or RunVirtual might be your only workarounds until a future release provides better compatibility.

    Also, if you haven't tried it already, try turning on local COM integration in the package settings. Perhaps the ActiveX control depends upon other COM objects which it cannot find because they haven't been exposed to the native IE.

  • Right - the misnomer is that it works for all plug-ins and BHOs. Java BHOs are not implemented as ActiveX.

  • Correction - I tried Flash the other day in SP3 and it did not work either. I thought that it did at one point, so perhaps changes in either App-V or Flash have broken the functionality.

  • I have another issue, the plugin/active x works if that particular package is started first (no other IE windows are running). But if I launch the application when IE is already running it won't load addons.
