identifying activex security settings

P: n/a
Hi,

I am installing an activex from a web page, for my clients, however,
it is possible for users to prevent activex objects in IE.

Some percentage of the users, don't see the initial "trust" yes/no
security box (my control IS signed).

I suspect, that this is because, they have some obscure security
settings.
I want to know whether it is possible, to identify this condition ?
Can javascript query the IE security model ?

Thank you in advance,
Sem

Yes, it's a security issue, but nothing obscure: it's called High
Security Level. In particular

Security Settings > Download signed ActiveX controls > Disable
and
Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins > Disable (or Administrator approved)
I want to know whether it is possible, to identify this condition ? Meanning on the server-side? No.
To prompt users that something's missing, use something like
<object...>ActiveX control is not activated.</object>
(the text between <object> tags is not visible if the object processes
OK)
Can javascript query the IE security model ?

No (except check cookie allowed/disabled).
