We've implemented a .NET WinForms UserControl which is hosted in IE as an ActiveX control through the use of COM Interop. However, in IE7 and IE8, the Info Bar pops up with the message:
The website wants to run the following add-on: 'Not Available' from 'Control name is not available'
We want it to display our control and publisher name instead. This is similar to this problem:
where Jialang Ge suggested:
Is your ActiveX control developed in native code or .NET? If it's in .NET, a possible solution is to make a shim for it.
Does anyone have more information on this shim approach? Is it related to mscoree.dll? Does it replace it?
