Problems with ie 7.0 and activex mcsimenu

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by Carlos Henrique, Oct 5, 2006.

  1. Hello

    I installed the ie 7.0 RC1 on the Windows xp-sp2 and I began tests of
    applications Web, developed in the intranet of the company in that work. The
    applications that used the control activex mcsimenu, didn't work plus, or
    better the menu than this control generates, didn't appear more. The
    applications were made in ASP.

    What do make now for the application it works again?

    Hi Carlos,

    Here is a copy of the answer I gave to your previous posts on this

    Hi Carlos,

    Sorry I did not know what mcsimenus were.

    MCSiMenu - enables Web authors to control the placement and appearance
    of Windows pop-up menus on Web pages. .. Popup Menu Object - enables Web
    authors to ...


    Ah! . The behaviour of ActiveX controls has changed. No wonder these context
    menu controls don't work.

    See here for an explanation and the workaround.

    I am not sure if you can apply this workarround to these controls. If not
    you may have to resort to javascript and the document contextmenu object.

    Hi Carlos,

    That was my point. I think that you will have to find a replacement for the
    mcsimenu controls. Anyway someone may have a solution. Regards.

    This happens when you upgrade from Internet Explorer 6 (IE6) to Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) and have already downloaded and installed the MCSiMenu control prior to the IE7 upgrade.

    To fix:
    Open up IE7 (browse to Google or any other website that doesn’t use this goofy control – make sure you don’t have any other windows or tabs open)
    Tools > Internet Options
    General Tab
    Under Browsing history, select Settings
    Click View Objects
    Click the MCSiMenuCtl Class (or something similar) and delete it.
    Close out of all the open Windows

    Start > Run…
    Regedit
    Select the Root node (My Computer – the top most item in the tree in the left pane)
    Click Edit > Find
    Type: 275E2FE0-7486-11D0-89D6-00A0C90C9B67

    Delete Every Key and Value that you find named: {275E2FE0-7486-11D0-89D6-00A0C90C9B67}
    (Basically, let it find it, then hit the Delete key – Regedit will automatically select the value or key that contains that string)

    it's actually MS tightening security. Check the Kill Bit.

    the CLSID for [275E2FD2-7486-11D0-89D6-00A0C90C9B67] has been locked down. change compatibility mode from 0x40 to 0x20/0x80 and it will then work on the workstation.

    All future MS updates will also break this control.

    See MSKB 240797 - "How to stop an ActiveX control from running in Internet Explorer"

    Using a sledgehammer to put a screw into a piece of wood works, but it also does some damage along the way...
