How do I get catalog.update.microsft.com to play nice with ie11 64-bit ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was getting nowhere on catalog.update.micrsoft.com with ie11 on windows 8.1 64-bit.

    Looks like it was missing an active-x control (and doesn't prompt for it).

    I used ie10 on another 64-bit machine (that I've previously used on the website) and grabbed MicrosoftUpdateCatalogWebControl.dll from %windir%sysWOW64 and copied it to the same location on my 8.1 box.  Then ran regsvr32 MicrosoftUpdateCatalogWebControl.dll as an administrator in that directory and everything was peachy.  Thought I'd share in case anyone else ran into this problem.

  • oh BTW use %windir%system32 for 32-bit machines.

    Edit:

    Turns out this may be because Microsoft is blocking out of date active-x controls on ie11.

    so....Microsoft doesn't trust Microsoft in this case.  Just saying...

    IE is not yet block out-of-date ActiveX controls - that behaviour doesn't start until Sept. 9th, and will only apply to JRE.

    There are
    often such lines, which reminds users whether they should please remember to give my posts a recognition or a tags, indicating the problem is resolved, whether there is not a shadow of a response or indication of a solution that can help the user with current problem.
    It's often questions and problem are closed, and appir as solved.
    But it propperly so it can benefit the upcoming wage negotiations, so we canprovide some statics, showing how effective employee they have.
