Recently a user has discovered the IE7 setting that causes the problem mentioned above. While in most cases the users do not require this setting, some of the users need that setting enabled to run a web application with one of our key customers.
The setting is the "Allow active content to run in files on My Computer":
I have only found a single reference to this setting in this post by RobbieS, however there is no futher discussion on the topic.
Does anyone know if it is possible to run the Qlikview Plugin with that option selected?
I received the following reply from our Qlikview vendor regarding this issue:
I have received feedback from QlikTech regarding your issue. They have been able to replicate the problem with IE7 when running SR5 of the IE plugin, however it works fine with IE7 when they tested it on SR6 (latest version). Finally, both SR5 and SR6 work fine with IE8.
Unfortunately, it seems like you would need to upgrade to SR6 in order to solve this problem. I that is the way to go, I would strongly suggest that you try this out on a test box to see if this solves the problem on your own environment before embarking on the upgrade.
I have not been able to verify this however, as we are not in a position to carry out either upgrade (SR6 or IE8) at this stage.
