After MS updates(KB2956142), my Excel xla addin stops working RRS feed

  • Question

  • The updates kb2956142 has known issues, one of them is:

    This security update opts Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint into local computer lockdown, a feature control for Internet Explorer, to prevent scripts in Office documents from running with elevated user rights.

    My AddIn (xla) calls a Java applet,  now stops working due to the update.

    I wonder if there is any workaround so that My addin can resume working. 

    I can't simply ask client to rollback the updates


    Peace & Joy
