The PowerBuilder ActiveX file (PBRX70.ocx) is considered by Internet
Explorer to be an Unsafe and Unsigned ActiveX which causes some security
concerns. Is there some way to make IE think of it as Safe? Is it
classified as Unsafe because this version can interact with the workstation
by running programs and changing/writing files?
I found I could tell IE that this server is part of our Intranet and that
Unsafe ActiveX are okay to run from the Intranet. I'm just looking for an
easier way.
Thank you in advance for your help.

I believe your statement "can interact with the workstation
by running programs and changing/writing files" is the reason....

Andy:
So, are you saying (or anybody), that there is no way to make pbrx70.ocx
considered signed? Is there a different ActiveX that I should use? I should
be getting an upgrade to version 8 soon (hah), will I then have something
better to use?
