You MUST use Internet Explorer 32-bit for all validation-related access at present - either MS has changed the rules without telling anyone, or the changes introduced for the Win8 lainch have broken the ActiveX access for all other browsers, and they have other worries.
The GenuineCheck only works on XP.
