Update ActiveX certificates



The requirement is for updated ActiveX certificates and all CAB or OCX files (including KeyMain, WORDMACROMANAGERDOT, and PREXCELMANAGERTEMPLATE VBA code).

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

Verify the signature of the ActiveX provided with Pega 7.2.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules. 

In a secure environment, only signed components can be installed and used where signing certificates is not outdated. 
However, all the .ocx files are signed with the outdated certificate. This is not valid. 
ActiveX package (all components) containing valid signed ActiveX with a valid signer certificate, is required. Without this, ActiveX cannot be installed and will be blocked.


Apply HFix-45271.
