I have an web application for packaging and pre-requisite is to add a url to trusted sites also to install active x control. does anybody know if adding url to trusted sites can be done automatically through packaging or is it something that needed to be done in sccm.?

Thanks for responses.

I have seen a lot of vbscripts created for adding the url as trusted locations. Just search for it. You can then use it as a CA in your MSI or MST with that Active X control.

Its just registry keys...

but you should really manage your trusted sites.

you used to always be able to see the trusted sites, but now there is a slight 'feature' that if it is controlled by a GPO and machine based you can actually see what they are.

You should be able to kick of a capture, add the site to trusted sites, then go to the page and pull down that OCX file.

  • Trusted sites should be set by Group Policy, period.
