Windows 7: IE9 cannot Run activex control .cab

IE9 cannot Run activex control .cab

good morning, afternoon and evening everybody. i'm new here. nice to meet you all.

so, yesterday i suppose to use my laptop for e-seminar from website that require me to install activex control addons. (SHWebManager from SAE) it's looks like working in IE10...BUT...some feature was missing. i couldn't upload the ppt and the listing of file was gone, etc.

i did a little bacground search on the web here. it appears that this activex control addon only work on XP SP2 IE8 or IE 9. so i downgraded my IE10. i uninstalled IE10 from "View Installed Updates".

then...activex control stops working. it asked me to install file when i open the site the download file was success but when i run it....nothing happened. it didn't crash and no error occurred. i checked on the "manage add on", but no luck.

so i tried manually using "pkgmgr /ip / /quite" but still no luck. FYI : no dependencies required or is it?
i tried to change the security setting but still....nothing happened.
i checked on event viewer...still nothing
i add it to trusted site, and reset the setting, restart the laptop, disabled the kaspersky, but still no luck.
i set the AXIS to automatic

where did i do wrong? in IE10 everything was going smooth but not this addons.

it's better to get an error, but this one, is irritating. please help

I wouldn't use Safe sites it's a fairly flaky feature and also Unnecessary,
When ever you upgrade or down grade a browser it's good to reset it to default,
Adjusting settings often does not help the situation.
As far as altering security settings to trouble shoot the issue/ this forum is very strict on what it deems risky and can damage or make your machine vulnerable to attack/ a member here can get banned for giving such direction.
Can’t access secure sites,

actually altering the security settings was just an attempt.
and yes...i also did reset the setting.

actually, i can view the sites, and it require me to install activex control.

my IE9 condition right now is :
i can open all the sites with default setting.
the java is working
then... i can't install any single activex control.

strangely the activex is downloadble but not running, no error. the event viewer only give information about the process, and act as if run perfectly.

Browsers & Mail
This issue has almost certainly been discussed before but I'd like to know why ActiveX scripts are challenged by Internet Explorer 9, (and all previous incarnations), and not by other browsers. Wasn't ActiveX a Microsoft alternative to JavaScript?
