Running AE 7.0 from a command line will not allow ActiveX controls to operate properly
In windows 7, if I open AE 7.0 by double-clicking the editor.exe file directly from it's directory (I am using the x64 version) I can then open the Help->About PTC Arbortext Editor menu item without issue.
If, instead, I open a command window (cmd.exe) and then open the AE 7.0 application (editor.exe) from that window the Help->About PTC Arbortext Editor menu item will show an error. It is due to the use of an ActiveX component to fill the text space on the panel.
Is there any way to open AE from a command window so ActiveX error will not occur? I need this method of activation when setting up my customer.
