SharePoint – Online ActiveX in Chrome Browser

Since I migrated my Hard and Software Inventory Scripts to SharePoint Online.

I felt the need to check if I could run it in the Chrome Browser as well … ?

Solution :

Step 1. Is to configure Chrome to accept ActiveX Scripts

Open Chrome and go to Settings –> Advanced Options –> Proxy Settings


Go to the Security Tab –> Add you SharePoint Online site to the TRUSTED Sites

Next go to Custom Level –> Change the following ActiveX settings


Safe and restart Chrome

Step 2. Is to download IETab Extension for Chrome


Once installed is will ask you to run a local exe called ietabhelper.exe

And it will show you the Extension Icon here :


Step3. Run it and test the Result

Go to the Hardware Inventory Tool in SharePoint Online and click Get Info


As you can see it retrieved all the details, to be saved in the SharePoint Online Cloud using the Chrome Browser

How cool is that Smile Smile
