Warning: The retired, out-of-support Internet Explorer 11 desktop application has been permanently disabled through a Microsoft Edge update on certain versions of Windows 10. For more information, see Internet Explorer 11 desktop app retirement FAQ.

About this update

This update provides a fix to the functionality of the Run this time button for the out-of-date ActiveX control-blocking feature in Internet Explorer 11, Internet Explorer 10, Windows Internet Explorer 9, and Windows Internet Explorer 8.

Update information

To enable this update, install the most recent cumulative security update for Internet Explorer. To do this, go to Microsoft Update. Additionally, see the technical information about the most recent cumulative security update for Internet Explorer.

Note This update was first included in March cumulative security update for Internet Explorer (MS15-018).

More information

You can enable blocked outdated ActiveX controls to run on sites that you trust by tapping or clicking the Run this time button on the out-of-date ActiveX control blocking notification. However, currently, if the ActiveX control that you want to load is in an iframe, tapping or clicking the Run this time button does not run the control as expected. 

This update resolves this issue and enables expected functionality for the Run this time button. Tapping or clicking the Run this time button will now enable all blocked ActiveX controls on a provided site to run on a one-time basis, regardless of whether the controls are in iframes or not. For more information, see Update to block out-of-date ActiveX controls in Internet Explorer.
