Error In IE6 : object doesnt support this property or method.

P: 2
Hi Guys

I am having an wearied issue and need your expert opinions on this. I am not network geek so may be that is why in trouble.

Here is the issue:

We have an web application running on the clients machine, this application has COM object (activeX). it was running fine with the user having Admin right. after some days now we revoke the Admin right from the user.

Now situation is with all the user it running some time on some computer and on some computers giving the error "object doesn't support this property or method.".

we are calling the object in JavaScript. here is the script:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. "           var axCtl;
  2.             axCtl = document.getElementById("InetCtl");
  3.             axCtl.setAllTextValues(licenseValues);
  4.  
  5.             axCtl.printCarRegCard();
  6.             window.close();
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. ".
We are using IE6 because this application is compatible with it.

Looking forwards your quick response on it.

It might be that the ActiveX object is only accessible by the admin group. It's been a long time since I wrote IE only apps! I assume you've tried adding a user back into the admin group to test?

What line does the error occur on?

Check the settings on each browser and see if there's a difference in the ones that work and the ones that don't.

Thanks for the reply, We tried to invoke the admin right on the same user and it worked fine, but here the situation is we don't want to give the admin right to normal users.

is this possible that Firewall or Antivirus stope this activex in normal user mode ?

Maybe try to see who has permissions on the activex dll or exe.

I just realized what you might be running...
Is that the standard IE browser control? (InetCtl)? Haven't mucked with that for years - used to love its capabilities.

That could definitely be getting stopped by the firewall (if it's an application also firewall), but the permission denied sounds like it's just "plain ole" permission issues.

As alluded to, try allowing normal users permissions on the control and see if that works.

If you have a bunch of machines, that could be a pain unless you have network-wide central machine management.
