Designates the Active Setup ActiveX control as administrator approved.

This control enables a form of setup in which a small number of files are initially downloaded from the Web to start the Setup process. Active Setup is designed to recover the setup process if a connection is interrupted.

If you enable this policy, this control can be run in security zones in which you specify that administrator-approved controls can be run.

If you disable this policy or do not configure it, this control will not be designated as administrator approved.

To specify how administrator-approved controls are handled for each security zone, carry out the following steps:

  1. In Group Policy, click User Configuration, click Internet Explorer Maintenance, and then click Security.
  2. Double-click Security Zones and Content Ratings, click Import the Current Security Zones Settings, and then click Modify Settings.
  3. Select the content zone in which you want to manage ActiveX controls, and then click Custom Level.
  4. In the Run ActiveX Controls and Plug-ins area, click Administrator Approved.
