I've read through several posts here, and even tried to install the activex
control myself (which it seemed to do, but doesn't seem to work).

Here is the situation...
I can get to my Remote Desktop Web Screen, but when I click on connect I get
an error (lower right hand part of IE), which is "Invalid procedure call or
agrument". I've tried from other computers, and can connect successfully, so
I know it is just this PC.

The problem seems to be it never prompts me to install the ActiveX Control
into IE (which iti did on the other systems I tried).

Is there someway to forcibly install the control into IE?

Thanks,
Dave Green
