SYMPTOMS

When you download the MSN Money Investing ActiveX controls, the Web page displays a chart when the download is finished. If you click the I See The Chart link before you actually see the chart, the installation of the controls may be incomplete.

Note When Microsoft updates the Investing controls, you must download the new version of the controls before you can use Investing.

CAUSE

This issue may occur if your browser is configured to refuse cookies. If your browser refuses the MSN Money cookie, the Portfolio Manager page reloads the Download Controls page each time that you go to Portfolio, because the information in the cookie is used to determine if the current version of the controls are installed.

RESOLUTION

To resolve this issue, do not click the I See The Chart link until you see the Download Complete bar chart.

If you are not sure if the download is finished, click the Refresh button on your browser tool bar. If you are prompted to accept a cookie, click OK or Yes.

If the issue continues to occur, verify that Microsoft Internet Explorer is configured to accept cookies. To do this, use the appropriate method for your version of Microsoft Internet Explorer.
