When installing WFBS on a server with Internet Explorer 9, no installation request for the ActiveX elements comes up. But when you enter the password, you get the following error:
Without ActiveX installed, Security Server management console won't be able to function properly. Please go back to login page, and install ActiveX for the browser.
To resolve the issue:
- Log in as the administrator.
- Open the Server Manager and click Configure IE ESC.
- Change the settings for the administrator from On (Recommended) to Off and then click OK. Your Server Manager should now show the settings for the IE Enhanced Security Configuration administrator as off.When you close and open Internet Explorer again, you will get the request to install the ActiveX element.
