Requirements for ActiveX Control Word.Application RRS feed

  • User-1056083589 posted

    Could someone please point me to the information that explains how Word.Application ActiveX control works? Our new Vista machines are locked down and I need figure out the requirements to still run this activeX control. When IE hits a page that contains following code, what are the events that get triggered? What is downloaded from the Server to the client, what security permissions for ActiveX controls are checked, what registry entries are read or modified and so on? Is it possible that because machines are locked down, I just preinstall this ActiveX control on the base image for all the users. Does Word.Application get installed when Microsoft Word is installed? We have Word preinstalled on the machines. Is Word.Application, somthing that I can download from somewhere and install?

    set objApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
    objApp.Documents.Open "http://test.com/HR0101.doc",,True
