If, like me, you’re sick to the back teeth of IE blocking your attempts to debug your own apps with it’s ActiveX filter – here’s how to stop it.
Note: This is for running locally off your machine – it should still block the ‘evil’ websites perfectly fine.
– In IE 7, go to Tools->Internet Options->Advanced
– Scroll down to ‘Security’ in the Settings pane
– Tick the box next to “Allow active content to run in files on My Computer”
Now run/debug your project once more (e.g. from Eclipse), and it should work fine!
