Can't Install Genuine Advantage ActiveX Control

by Ross on October 12, 2012 at 4:05 PM under

If you're having trouble downloading updates from Microsoft's website due to their annoying genuine advantage ActiveX crap, make sure you're attempting to download it in the 32 bit version of Internet Explorer. For whatever reason, in 64 bit Internet Explorer you'll be prompted to allow the installation but you won't get the actual installation prompt.
