Installation Help

Two ActiveX controls need to be installed in order to use all EZ-Metrix features. These controls are not signed with a digital signature, so you will need to set your browser to download and use unsigned ActiveX controls. THIS IS IMPORTANT! If the ActiveX controls are not installed, EZ-Metrix will not work properly. Once this has been done properly, the ActiveX controls will download automatically (page refresh may be required).

  • TLTBrowseDirButton is used to browse for a directory.
  • SourceCodeCompare is used to compare the source files.
Once the ActiveX controls have been installed, you are ready to begin.

Temporarily disable pop-up blockers (if any).

If you are using firewall software, you may be warned when the ActiveX program starts up. If this happens, click on allow the script to run to completion.

Setting up Internet Explorer

(EZ-Metrix supports only Microsoft Internet Explorer at this time)
Other browsers such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox may also work (with add-in programs), but these are untested with EZ-Metrix at this time.
