Problems with DMK component in 64-bit Windows

You are here

In the default installation of a 64-bit Windows 7, there are two versions of Internet Explorer installed, (one 64-bit Internet Explorer and one 32-bit Internet Explorer).
The 64-bit version of Internet Explorer does not support AktiveX components.
Our DMK component is only compatible with the 32-bit version.
Here is a little instruction how you can run the 32-bit Internet Explorer on a PC with installed Windows 64-bit version:

Run 32-bit Internet Explorer
  1. Start an Explorer window and navigate to the folder: "C:\Program Files(x86)\Internet Explorer\"
  2. Double-click the file: "iexplore.exe"
Create a desktop icon to the 32-bit Internet Explorer
  1. Select and create a shortcut to the file "iexplore.exe" located in the "C:\Program Files(x86)\Internet Explorer\" folder.
  2. Copy the shortcut to the desktop.
Uninstall DMK component

It may be that the DMK component is not installed correctly, (if you have installed DMK from the 64-bit Internet Explorer).
To be on the safe side uninstall the DMK component and reinstall it from the 32-bit version of Internet Explorer.

  1. Select Startmenu and select "Control Panel"
  2. Select "Programs and Features"
  3. Double-click on the "ProjectCoordinator DMK"
  4. Select "Yes" in the pop-up window
Install DMK component
  1. Start the 32-bit Internet Explorer and log in to ProjectCoordinator.
  2. Go to the Documents folder, now should the *"Install DMK" button be available in the window. *NOTE: This button is removed from version 3.0.2. 
  3. Click the "Install DMK" button to install DMK component, follow the onscreen instructions.
