    Dear group,

    I'm having a problem with enabling the CCTV on a desktop and I think it
    might be to do with SBS user permissions.

    When I log onto the pc as the user I cannot install the ActiveX file,
    downloaded automatically from the CCTV box. But when I login as
    Administrator then I can download and install it.

    The CCTV software is on the device, I go to it's IP address using the web
    browser, and the ActiveX software is installed. But before it will install
    I have to lower the security settings in IE and add the CCTV box as a
    Trusted Site. Then it installs, but only when Admin.

    In case this makes a difference, this is what I have to do as Admin to
    install it:
    I have to lower the security settings to Low, as well as add it as a Trusted
    Site (untick the HTTPS button). And I need to enable the remaining ActiveX
    options in Custom Level. Then it will install if I am Administrator, but
    not if I am a user (mobile/power user).

    2 files are downloaded, they get installed, and it works like a dream. I
    then reset the security settings to Default and remove it from Trusted Sites
    and it will continue to work.

    What is going wrong here?
