    Re: How to enable active desktop registry

    To determine if Active Desktop is being displayed as a Web page, view the following registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\ {AEB6717E-7E19-11d0-97EE-00C04FD91972}\InProcserver32

    If the default value is Shell32.dll, Active Desktop is installed. If the default value is Url.dll, Active Desktop is not installed.
