    Default I have a problem with activeX

    I'm trying to get into my computer remotely with the website
    www.logmein.com
    the site tells me that my Google Chrome don't support activeX or Java.
    I've installed java 6 update 10, I saw that people are saying that that version supports Google Chrome...
    but still, it doesn't seem to do anything...
    I saw in the Google Chrome developer help that you need an external plug-in in order for activeX to work with Chrome...

    someone knows weather there is such a plugin?
    if do, can you please give me a link for downloading?


    Thank anyone who helps me...

    Tzahi.

    ActiveX should be enabled by default. Type in:

    about:plugins

    This will give you a list of all your Chrome Plugins, just see if it's enabled like this:

    Sorry that's not real readable, i will have to change the Lightbox settings to make it larger however it should give you the idea. ActiveX is the first bit of info on the about page.

    Also to check of Java did in fact install properly go to this page: http://java.com/en/download/help/testvm.xml?ff3

    If it is installed properly, you should see a black and white creature dancing around and it will say Java 6 Update 10

    Lightbulb About java and Chrome

    Well, I found out a thing with Java and i don't know if it's a bug or not so i post it here: I installed jre 6.10(the one that works with chrome) and wrote a test page, a simple applet to display a text. Using the <applet> tag, the program won't load, not even display a thing, BUT using the newer, object tag, evrything works fine, i even tested a bit more complex applet, like drawin some animation.. I did a bit of research, and found out that applet is deprecated in w3 standard, they recommend using the newer object tag..so maybe it is a bug or maybe it is just a support for the future. Hope this post is helpfull. Peace'

    Unhappy so what can it be?

    I can see the creature dancind and it says version 6 update 10
    and in my about:plugins screen I can see that the activeX plugin is enabled.

    in IE I can see the website great. why don't I see it with Chrome?

    Which site exactly?? The logmein.com or something like(your initial post) that does not even prompt for me to enable/permit activex...it load perfectly..i haven't tried to log in or do anything, just opened the site and clicked some links, everything seems ok..using latest chrome+jre 6.10 no additional actions taken(installing external plugin or something)

    Default that isn't what I ment

    its loaded perfectly for me too,
    this website gives you a free program to remote control on your far away's computers...
    if you'll log in and install the program on some computer and try to see the computer the computer remotely with google chrome, you'll see it in a HTML based view and it'll be written that your browser doesn't seem to have activeX or java control enabled.

    in IE and FF it works just fine...

    I love chrome and I would be more than happy if i could see it with that browser...

    Lightbulb Remote..sza

    I suspect that the problem comes from those who provide the remote program, not from chrome. Try accesing other sites know to require Java and ActiveX..can't give example so sudden but if I recall correctly, when you download something from Adobe it requires ActiveX..try downloading Acrobat Reader for instance see if ActiveX works

    Default well

    apparently you're right,
    I've send a message to Logmein support and here is the answer:

    Hi Tzahi,

    LogMeIn does not officially support the Google Chrome browser. For a list of officially supported browsers, see our
    compatibility document <> .

    However, in some initial testing, it was determined that if you also have the Mozilla Firefox browser installed, and
    have used it to access LogMeIn prior to using Google's Chrome browser, Chrome will also attempt to utilize the plugin
    that was installed in Firefox (though Chrome cannot install the plugin itself).

    Also, LogMeIn does support a HTML-only screenshot mode by default, for when ActiveX, Java, or the Firefox plugin do not
    apply.

    Chrome cannot run the LogMeIn Rescue Technician Console.

    Your welcome.I suggest you chill and wait a couple of weeks/month until the chrome plugin issues stabilise..they fix the bugs, make plugins addons etc..The browser is out only by a week or 2, so u can expect things like this to happen..they haven't got the time physically speaking to test it on all those stuff..soooo..as Windows says...Please sit back and relax while..
