What is the GDC ActiveX ?

What is the GDC ActiveX ?

Product Version Platform
Genero Desktop Client - ActiveX All All

Genero Desktop Client is also an ActiveX. Packed into its .cab file, it can be put into a web site and then used directly with Internet Explorer.
Once a browser connects to the given URL, Genero Desktop Client will be displayed within a web page and can also be used exactly in the same way as the "classic" version.

The first time you access the Client in Active X mode, it installs itself and creates a shortcut in Windows Start Menu. Then Genero Desktop Client can be executed from the web page or directly with the shortcut.

I plan to install GDCAX on Windows Vista. Is there any known problem?

I plan to install GDCAX on Windows Vista. Is there any known problem?

Product Version Platform
Genero Desktop Client - ActiveX All Windows Vista

Installation

A lot of protection has been added to Vista to prevent spyware or other malicious programs from being installed without the agreement of the end user. Therefore, installing an Active X needs, by default, strong user agreement.

Active X are run by Internet Add-on Installer, a special tool used by Internet Explorer 7 to install Active X. Running this tool requires the agreement of the end-user and UAC Administrator User rights:

The first time you start GDC Active X, two steps are performed:

  • Deploying files (simple copy) in %Program Files%
  • Registering the Active X (which is done by gdc.exe /regserver), to ternet Explorer how to execute the ActiveX.

The first step is done by Internet Explorer Add-on Installer, but the second requires IE to be started as Administrator:

If not, GDC will not be registered and Internet Explorer will not be able to load GDC Active X:

Note: This message has been introduced in the template in GDC 2.00.1e or greater.

Running Active X

It is not necessary to run IE as Administrator in order to use GDC Active X, only to install it. Once the Active X has been installed, the user will be prompted to allow Internet Explorer to start Genero Desktop Client Active X:

Depending on your Security Settings, Internet Explorer may not be able to start ActiveX ; the default security settings have been changed to allow less freedom to Active X for Vista. You may have to change these settings to allow Genero Desktop Client Active X to be used on your computer.



Note:
The gdc.exe file has been signed in version 2.00.1e or greater.
