PMP and the Active X Component

Hi HP,

Could I make a plea for the Active X Component of PMP be made available within the PMP installation.
I've again got a new PC and again the Active X Component has failed to download.
This could be the firewall on the PC, somewhere in our ISA infrastructure or again the "not found on the MS Site" issue I've seen before. I've not yet gone through all of the logs to track it down.

Ideally it would be nice for it to be replaced altogether, that way I would not need to have IE just for PMP Graphs and could use Firefox.

Re: PMP and the Active X Component

Rob, I passed your request on to the Product Manager. BTW, the long term goal is to move away from ActiveX for PMP.

Re: PMP and the Active X Component

David,
Thanks, just to confirm this again seems to be the file is not available on the MS Site.
I get these two entries from our ISA Server when the request for the PMP ActiveX component is requested;

10.x.x.x dom\myuser Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; FDM) 2006-03-08 22:23:19 ISA1 - 192.x.x.x 192.x.x.x 3128 344 658 361 http POST http://activex.microsoft.com/objects/ocget.dll Upstream 404
10.x.x.x dom\myuser Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; FDM) 2006-03-08 22:23:20 ISA1 - 192.x.x.x 192.x.x.x 3128 344 654 550 http POST http://codecs.microsoft.com/isapi/ocget.dll Upstream 404

Good news on moving PMP away from ActiveX.

Re: PMP and the Active X Component

Found the following:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/323207/
Which indicates the errors in our ISA logs are not the issue.
It seems that PMP was just not pulling the details from the PMP Server.

I located the pmpgraph.cab file and extracted the 3 ocx files.
I then registered these on my Workstation and PMP Graphs now display.
