When attempting to launch the "Baseline Compliance Scan Wizard" using Internet Explorer 7*, an error message is displayed that reads:

One or more ActiveX controls could not be displayed because either:

    1. Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page.
    2. You have blocked a publisher of one of the controls.

As a result, the page may not display correctly.

Clicking OK immediately displays a second error that reads:

Terminating wizard. This wizard requires you to download the file.
