Testing IE Settings
How to tell whether the app will run?

I have a web-based application thet uses Windows Media Player. I need to pre-test the IE browser-side settings to make sure they will allow the app to function. I know there's no direct way to query IE security settings - any ideas on building a Pass/Fail page that will pre-warn of problems? The working list of settings to be tested are:


Enable "Binary and script behaviors”: Req’d for Windows Media Player Control and our communications with it.

Set to Prompt: "Download Signed Active X Controls": Req’d for Windows Media Player Control… if a user doesn’t already have it installed…

Enable "Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins": Req’d for Windows Media Player Control

Enable "Script Active X Controls marked safe for scripting": Req’d for Windows Media Player Control

Enable "Active Scripting": Req’d for Windows Media Player Control and our communications with it.

Also, howzabout testing bandwidth and reporting back to the server, or minimally displaying client-side? Has anyone had experience with this.

I also need to test for IE 5 or greater and WMP 6 or greater - but these are less challening.

I know this isn't really what you are looking for, but is IIS Smooth Streaming [iis.net] an option?

Thanks for the link, marcel.

We're looking at rewriting (actualy building anew) the application and SilverLight is prominent on the radar screen for that effort. For now though, the immediate need is to create a tool that will prevent/diagnose client incompatabilities.
