Find the IE security settings in BSP

Hello All,

I have a BSP application makes use of ActiveX control for displaying a calendar. This ActiveX control is stored in the form of cab file in the mime repository of the server.

When the user runs the BSP application for the first time the activeX control gets downloaded automatically on to the user system . However for this automatic download to happen the IE security settings should be set to medium-low . Now, is it possible to get the security settings(high/medium/medium-low/low) of the browser in BSP so that i can display appropriate message when it is not possible to install/display the control due to client browser security settings.

Also, is it possible to check for failure of ActiveX installation on the system in BSP due to some other reasons.

Thanks in advance

    it is not possible outside the ActiveX-Control to do both things, you requested. That's only possible within the control itself.

    If yo have not written the control yourself, you have bad cards :-(.

    It is not possible to check all the other settings of the ie outside via scripting (VBA/JScript/javascript).

    Thanks this helps (or not),
