Microsoft Update, asks for activex even though added cab to HFCABS


Recommended Posts

I can confirm this. I think it's that authorization cab but I'm not sure.

I still don't have mucltui.dll in system32 after running Microsoft Update, though; neither on Win2K (normal system) nor on WinXP (virtual machine).

It could be as simple as this:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00



I'll test this tomorrow when I'm more awake... :D

@ SUper Magician

Tried that!

@ Tomcat76

I've deleted those keys, and tried Microsoft update...

Didnt ask for active x.

Gonna add it to my reg file and run a test install, will report back after.

Ok, unfortunately those keys don't fix it...

However I've found out if you change add this key to the following, it stops asking to install activex...


Change it to 00000000 to see it ask for the activex controls, and 00000004 for it to not ask.

Going to test this on an fresh install...

The only difficulty is: that reg value would be inserted before IE7 is installed. If the IE7 installer overwrites it again, I'll have to switch the order around of the programs in SVCPACK.INF so I can embed a REG ADD in HFSLIP.CMD that's executed AFTER IE7 is installed.
