We have an ActiveX that our users install a CAB through IE. After Microsoft security update (KB3058515) our users are now experiencing failures to install the ActiveX. Before the update was applied, the ActiveX installed OK.
When the installation fails, a Code Download error file reports the error code "80070005". :
*** Code Download Log entry (15 Jun 2015 @ 10:43:14) ***

Hello everyone,

Thanks for the feedback on this ActiveX CAB install problem. In testing this on my local workstation I am not able to repro the errors described. As a result, we will close out this feedback out as not repro. Please note that we are no longer working on Internet Explorer feature bugs any longer unless they are security related.

All the best,
The Microsoft Edge Team

I have the same problem on our environment. Both IE11 and IE8 are affected.

I have seen the same problem on some windows 7 workstations when loading mochasoft activex objects. A workaround is to run IE as administrator, as to get the activex object downloaded to the PC. Hereafter "normal" users can use the activex object.

IE 10.0.19 did not have this problem.
