An ActiveX control is an application that can run inside Internet Explorer. When an ActiveX control is signed, it indicates that the control was produced by the signer and has not been altered. Edraw Office Viewer Component is signed by EdrawSoft, and you will not be prompted to install an unsigned control or a control signed by anyone else while using Edraw Component.

By default, Internet Explorer allows signed ActiveX controls to run and you should be prompted to install the Edraw signed ActiveX control. If you have changed your Internet Explorer Security Settings, take the follow steps to ensure that you are able to install the Edraw Office Viewer ActiveX Control:

Select Tools, then Internet Options from the menu at the top of the Internet Explorer window. The Internet Options section will appear.
Select Security from the list of tabs at the top of the Internet Options window. The Security section will appear.
Select the Custom Level button. The Security Settings window will appear.
Scroll down to the Download signed ActiveX controls entry and select the prompt radio button.
Scroll down to the Run ActiveX controls and plugins entry and select the enabled radio button.
Select the OK button to accept the changes.
You will now be prompted to accept signed ActiveX controls from websites that you visit.

If a user attempts to install and run an unregistered ActiveX control from the Internet, Internet Explorer checks to see if the control was digitally signed. If the ActiveX (OCX) file has a certificate of trust that is already trusted on the user’s computer, it is accepted, installed, and registered. Depending on the security level set for use by Internet Explorer, if the certificate of trust is unknown to the system, the user is presented with the option to install the control. If the user accepts the option to install the control, the certificate of trust associated with the control is noted in the registry.

If the ActiveX (OCX) file is installed as part of an application from a CD or other locally opened resource, there is no examination of the certificate (if there is one) associated with the OCX file. It is assumed the file is associated with an application which has been deemed safe to install by the user, and it is installed and registered without challenge.

Once the control is installed on a user’s system, the control no longer invokes code-signing dialog boxes when started. After a control is installed, it is considered safe even if it was not digitally signed originally.

Edraw Office Viewer Component has been signed with EdrawSoft digital signature. It’s safe to download with the default internet safety level.
