Click here to activate and use this Control

Oh My! Right during the website deployment, my team member screamed to me that the flash navigation does not work. It pops up a tooltip saying "Click here to activate and use this Control". Is'nt this your common complaint these days?

It seems to be a latest Windows update security patch that gets delivered from Windows Update website, that has caused this difference in behavior in IE forcing the users acknowledge and confirm that they really want to use the ActiveX Control. Going by the trend these days, Windows is getting stricter with the users in its sense of security making the shell secure for users. Additionally, the ActiveX Control (Flash Movie) appears with a kind of greyish border, indicating that the control is currently unavailable for any user input unless the user opts to activate it and use the same.

Check out this solution from Macromedia for the fix.

One Response so far.
