There are some instances where Internet Explorer 11 will not run an ActiveX script. This can be tested by going to the site www.activextest.com. If you receive a message indicating you are using Chrome or Firefox, then an ActiveX will not be able to run. 

There are settings within IE which can cause this. The most common are:

  • Enhanced Protected Mode

  • ActiveX Filtering

  • Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe for scripting
