Gadget with OBJECT html tag stopped working in Win7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a Gadget for the former Vista Sidebar (now Gadgets are shown on the desktop) that stopped working in Windows 7.

    In the gadget's html file I am using an object html tag to display an ActiveX object. Insted of the object, I only get a red cross shown in the gadget in Win 7.

    I use the <permissions>full tag in the manifest.

    Any ideas?

  • In Internet options on the advanced tab allow active content to be shown locally.
    You may also need to enable activeX in Security settings.

  • I activated "Allow active content to run in files on My Computer" as well as set the zone level for lcoal sites to the lowest, still does not change.

    In Vista where it works, both settings are set to their default values.
