Internet Explorer has blocked this site from using an Active X control in an unsafe manner

Hi All

I'm using QV 11.2 on Windows Server 2008. Users are accessing documents using IE plugin over HTTPS. Recently new users have been granted access to environment, and some of them can't access documents - IE displays "Internet Explorer has blocked this site from using an Active X control in an unsafe manner".

This message is displayed only for couple of users and I'm struggling to reproduce issue on other workstation. Have you ever seen similar problem?

Thanks, it may be the solution but I still don't understand why some users would require this site to be added explicitly while others can access QV documents without any changes in Internet Options.

I hope there is other way to solve this issue, because I'd really like to avioid asking all my users to add QV address to list of trusted sites.


I bet the difference is that have the plugin installed. The plugin is automatically installed if you install the desktop.
