- the same Qlikview application, opened with the Internet Explorer Plugin, on two machines with similar settings (similar user rights, similar programs), both having Powerpoint installed,
- a Macro which opens Powerpoint and dumps images,
works on one machine, opens it and starts dumping the images,
the otherfails with error message: failed to create Activex object, error in Macro.
We understood it is a problem with the Macro Level settings, and so we have removed the lines with [Module Checksums System] from the file: C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\QlikTech\QlikView\Settings.ini , as we read here: How to reset Macro authorizations
You have discovered the Qlik easter eggs which are not documented nor supported from Qlik. Changes there might have strange effects - you may compare them against your other users to detect any differences. Some of these settings will be stored within the settings.ini but I think there are also ones which are stored within the registry which may also a place to check and compare entries.
Before this I would rather de-install QlikView and/or the plugin and installing it again and/or check if this user could work with the machine from colleague - if this worked than the issue is related to the user-machine and if not with his/her profile. It's rather seldom but profiles could get corrupted ... also it's thinkable that any group policy is active (often there are further tools/processes than the usual firewalls and antivirus).
