Problem running validation ActiveX Control (Windows Xp PRO) RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Hi,

    I've just purchased a new laptop and Windows XP Pro. Whenever I go to Windows Update and click the 'Validate' button, I never see the gold bar which is supposed to appear at the top and ask about running the ActiveX Control. When I choose the 'alternate method', I see this message:

     

    Validation Not Completed: ActiveX Error

    There are several reasons why validation may not have succeeded.

    • The Microsoft Genuine Advantage Tool requires the user account to have administrative privileges on the computer.
    • The Microsoft Genuine Advantage Tool requires access and is unable to communicate with the Microsoft validation servers. Please click here to learn more about troubleshooting your antivirus, antispyware, Internet Explorer and firewall settings.

    When I run the diagnonis, everything passes but the 'Windows validation ActiveX loaded ' remains in 'Checking' mode and stays like this for hours.
     
    I've run the MGAD control and it seems that there are some browser settings which are causing this issue. Here are the results:

    Are you having complications loading the Active X control? I would like to provide the following information and steps for you to follow to attempt resolving this issue.

    Step 1: OGA Manual ActiveX Installation

     

    1.      Click the Start button, then click “Run”

    2.      Type in “iexplore http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=39204” then click ‘OK’. You will be prompted to download “LegitCheckControl.cab”.

    3.      Choose Open. Once this completes, a window will open showing two files, LegitCheckControl.dll and LegitCheckControl.inf. Leave this window open for now.

    4.      Click the Start button, then click “Run”

    5.      Type in “system32”, then click ‘OK’. (If you are running Windows XP, you may need to click “show files” to allow access to this system directory.)

    6.      Drag the LegitCheckControl.dll file from the window that was open into the system32 directory. If you are prompted to overwrite a file, choose ‘Yes’ to overwrite any existing file. (If you are running Vista, you may be prompted to provide administrator permission to complete the action. If so, press “Continue” and allow it.)

    7.      Click the Start button, then click “Run”

    8.      Type “regsvr32 LegitCheckControl.dll”, and then click ‘OK’.

    9.      You should see a dialog saying “DllRegisterServer in LegitCheckControl.dll succeeded.”

    After you finish the above steps please restart the computer and try to validate Windows again: http://www.microsoft.com/genuine. Please locate the “Validate Windows” button in the upper right hand corner. Double click on the button and follow the guidance. Did validation pass successfully?

     

    I hope this has helped,

  • Launch Internet Explorer and from the Toolbar select:  Tools > Internet Options > Advanced > Reset and then click Apply.  Close Internet Explorer, then launch Internet Explorer again and visit:

    http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/diag/ and click on Start Diagnostics.

  • Hi and thanks for the reply.

     

    I've reset the settings as you asked and restarted my computer, however nothing has changed. I still don't see the option to run the activeX control when I try to validate windows, and the diagnostic tool you linked to gives this output:

     

    Microsoft Genuine Advantage Diagnostic Results

    Passed Active scripting allowed
    Passed Display images enabled
    Passed Computer time and date correct
    Passed Cookies enabled
    Passed ActiveX enabled
    Checking Windows validation ActiveX loaded
    Passed Office validation ActiveX loaded
    Passed Validation Self-help ActiveX loaded

    The activeX setting remains in 'Checking' mode for ages and never changes. Also I do get prompted to run an ActiveX control when I run the diagnostic but it remains in 'Checking' even though I run it.

     

     

    Here is a fresh log from the MGAD tool, it seems that some browser settings are disabled:
