JSI Tip 8410. When you open a Web page that must download an ActiveX Control in Windows XP SP2, you receive 'The site might require the following ActiveX control: <ActiveX Control info.>'?

When you open a Web page that must download an ActiveX Control, the Internet Explorer Information Bar in Windows XP Service Pack 2 displays:

The site might require the following ActiveX control: <ActiveX Control info.>

To download the ActiveX Control:

1. Right-click the Information Bar and press Install ActiveX Control.

2. When prompted, download the ActiveX Control.

NOTE: You cannot bypass the Information Bar unless the ActiveX Control is already installed.

NOTE: The first time this behavior occurs, you receive a modal dialog box calling your attention to this new feature.
