I've run several versions of the WPF/E Runtime and uninstalled them all. Suddenly after installing hte WPF/E SDK Refresh from 12/23/2006, the WPF/E component kinda doesn't work in IE. Here's why:
In the AGHost.js file, you create an instance of an ActiveX object called "AGServer.AGServer.0.8" to ensure that it is installed. This fails which tells the AGHost to show the download link. THis works as intended, but the reason that creating that object doesn't work is that at some point the ownership of those keys in the registry (the ones in HKCR that are named "AGServer.AGServer" and "AGServer.AGServer.0.8") are failing for security reasons. In fact, as an admin on the box (and without UAC) I can't even access those keys (or delete them).
Anyone else having issues like these on Vista? I might try enabling UAC, uninstalling, disabling it again, and re-installing but I don't think that will help. I have worked around the issue by commenting out the creation of the ActiveX object in the script, because the object tag works fine (it loads it up by CLSID and I have full access to those keys). But that's not a good solution long term.
Any help is helpful...

I missed this the first time around. I'll look into this...
