Only use the ActiveX Installer Service for installation of ActiveX Controls

This policy setting allows you to specify how ActiveX controls are installed.

If you enable this policy setting, ActiveX controls will only install if the ActiveX Installer Service is present and has been configured to allow ActiveX controls to be installed.

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, ActiveX controls, including per-user controls, will be installed using the standard installation process.
