Your security settings do not allow websites to use ActiveX contro

I have already set the Internet Options->Advanced ->Security to "Allow
active content to run in files on My Computer" and restarted the browser.

If I navigate using the browser to the website that contains the ActiveX,
the ActiveX is loaded and the website works fine.

However if I run a web test created using VS Team Suite or run a Load test
of the same web test within VS, the ActiveX is not loaded on the page and
this warning keeps popping up:

"Your security settings do not allow websites to use ActiveX controls
installed on your computer"

Does anyone have an idea how to force VS to accept the same settings as the
Internet Options and allow the ActiveX to load on the page being tested?

Hi Phillip,

I'm not sure, you mentioned that HTTPS is not used, but the cab is still
downloaded from SSL? Also, how're you testing if the ActiveX is installed
or not? Have you tried to add the site into the Trusted Sites zone and
lower the security settings there?

Can you send me a reprodicuble project to help me reproduce the issue on my
side? Thanks.
