    Install/inject IE 11 Active X Control with the UEM.  Is it possible?

    robsisk1972 Enthusiast

      Hello all,

       

      Is it possible to install an active x control to IE 11 via the UEM?

       

      The Story...

      Just a handful of our users are use a java web app that requires an active x control to be installed in order for them to print.  Yeah...I know....It's a really crappy web app.   Since users aren't admins, users can not install the active x control.    The browser I am speaking of is IE11.  This is the only browser that is supported by the web app owner.    I do not want to install this in the master image if only a handfull of users .

       

      Does anyone think this is possible with the UEM?  

       

      Thanks

      Rob

          I would just use Group Policy to add that Domain/site to the Trusted Sites security.  Then, users should be able to install it...or have it auto-install.

          Much easier...although that's not the question you asked.

           

          The only way I could think of with UEM is the have the registry keys added to populate the required security values.

           

          Configuring Internet Explorer via the Windows Registry

           

          Basic Instructions:

           

          • On a computer where the desired control has been installed, lookup the CLSID for that control in the registry under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\<control name>\CLSID
          • Next, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\AllowedControls.

               If that key doesn't exist you can create it.  Add a DWORD value for the CLSID you want, and set the data to 0.  To prohibit the use of that Control set the data to 1.

               To limit Internet Explorer to the use of those Controls configure the "Run ActiveX Controls And Plug-ins" setting to "Administrator Approved". 

               This is a per-security-zone setting, so you will have to set it for every zone you want limited.

           

          Play around with these settings and maybe it will work for your environment.

            Thanks for your response.   However I didn't see it until now.   I ended up installing the Active X control in an app volume to resolve but may go back and try your GP suggestion.
