Error Message


Does anyone know what this message is all about:

"An ActiveX control on this page might be unsafe to interact with other parts of the page. Do you want to allow this interaction?"

This error occurs while I'm running inside of FrontPage at the line where I'm creating an instance of a business objects.  If I answer "Yes" then it continues without a problem.  However, if I say "No" then I get the infamous "Cannot create Activex Object ..." error.

I published this little app to my local machine c:\inetpub\wwwroot\myweb.  Now, when I use IE5 to open the site (e.g. //mymachine/myweb/default.htm) and click on my custom button, I get the "Cannot create Activex Object ..." error.  However, if I click on the default.htm in the same location through the Windows explorer, it works just fine.

This is very irritating!

The more I learn, the more I need to learn!
