I have Windows 7 home premium. I have software (ProTools and it's add-ons) which require the licenses to be on an iLok dongle. This iLok requires an ActiveX component to communicate and recognize the dongle.
It functioned for a while, but now does not. I can't understand what changed. I have IE8, and Firefox 3.6 (which, oddly enough, is the browser that iLok.com supports...). When trying to download my latest license, both browsers now return the same error:
"The ActiveX component used to communicate with your iLok did not initialize..."
I've been searching for ActiveX controls independent of the browser; some forum threads here say use gpedit, but I found this does not function (I guess that only works on Windows 7 PRO and not Home, yes?)
I've enabled all ActiveX boxes in IE8 (my system is 64-bit, but I'm using the 32-bit version of IE8 just in case...), I don't really see ActiveX options in Firefox. I turned off the firewall and shut down Adaware...
Is there still something in the software or control panel, that controls the PC's overall policy for ActiveX?
Tips, clues appreciated, thanks!
