Hello folks,

I am faced with a problem with which I need help, obviously...

Seems like there is a component of an ActiveX module which is locked down tightly...It can not be copied, moved or deleted...It resides in the 'C:\systemroot\Downloaded Program Files' folder...

I was able to extract the other components, which are about 15 or so except for this component...The site which places it on my system is a highly secure website dealing with financial transactions...

It eludes setup capture or any other method to capture it...I tried Wise and Thinapp to no avail...

My question is, is there any way to copy or extract this component?

Thanks in advance...

I had to deal with a similar problem on a package I built. The directory you are referring to is the "INSTALLED" ActiveX Controls. It is a system folder and does not act like a typical folder. These components must be uninstalled and can't simply be deleted. In the package I created, I was able to obtain the ActiveX installation files from the vendor along with an uninstall routine. If you can "uninstall" the ActiveX Controls, the associated entry(s) in that directory will be deleted. By the same token, if you install controls, it will place a corresponding entry in that directory. I hope this is of some help. Good Luck!

Yes, pmarshbu is correct. First thing to try is get CLS ID of the component which gets downloaded at 'Downloaded Program Files'.
Check for the related entry in registry, typically at HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\AllowedControls\.
Usiong that, you will need to search the vendor support website for downloading that component locally and then you can use it.
Most of the times, its nothing but a bunch of .dll's and .ocx's.

Thanks for your help guys...I was actually able to capture it with wise after a little settings tweaking...

Now there is another issue...It's storing my login ID and password...Meaning, when I go back to the site after installing my package, it tells me I am already logged on...I checked the tables, but there was no login info there...I checked the registry as well...No luck...

Would you know where else I I should be looking?

If this is a web site you're connecting to, then surely the details are being held in a cookie?
