Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is defect or misconfiguration in the PRPC operating environment. It was found that the machine does not have prOpenAuthoring.ocx.

Upon opening the page, due to security restrictions, the browser add-on was not downloaded and installed.


Perform the following local-change steps:
  1. Install the ActiveX add-on manually. The add-on are provided in the PRPC zip file under ResourceKit\Utilities\OCXInstaller folder.
  2. After the installation, note that the add-on should be listed in "C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files".

The add-ons will not run when Pega portal is opened on 64 bit Internet Explorer.
