Like I posted before, I am running win7 64 ultimate.
Yes, I have all the updates.
This is happening on 2 different computers.

I HATE IE! I will be using a real software package that can use the camera, this way I don't have to screw around with IE.

Problem solved!

While you mention the Plugin version. What are the firmware versions currently running in the camera?

Thanks.


Is this possible yet?

I am using Windows 8.1 with IE 11. The plug-in worked fine prior to upgrading the firmware on my FI9826W camera. However, now when I open a connection to my camera after the upgrade, I always get prompted to install the plug-in. Unfortunately, the methods for manually installing the plug-in does not seem to do anything. In addition, I have no means of removing the plug-ins from the IE 11 > Manage add-ons dialog. The only option I see is "disable". Any help would be appreciated.

Please use IE ("Internet Explorer") compatibility view:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/use-compatibility-view#ie=ie-11-win-7

Note: It applies to Windows 8 as well.

I think for IE all you have to do is remove the plugin. This will force a reload next time you open the camera tool.

Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately, adding the IP address for my camera to the IE 11 compatibility list does not work. I see the exact same install prompt and the plug-in does not initialize.

Wow, finally figured it out. I ran the command prompt as administrator, then:

Code: Select all
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.3.9600]
(c) 2013 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\WINDOWS\system32>cd ..

C:\Windows>cd "Downloaded Program Files"

C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files>del ocxIPcam.ocx

C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files>

I then visited the camera web page, and it installed properly! :D

Please note. I have this camera model and have upgraded to this firmware version in the past.

You should have been able to delete the ActiveX plugin from IE "Manage Ad Ons" without the need to do this brute force delete.

You must have had a very old ActiveX module as well installed.
