SharePoint ActiveX Override (SPAXO)

Here’s another Codeplex free concoction to enhance your SharePoint site. This HTTP Module removes the annoying and not needed (in this specific scenario) Active X security prompt when accessing an Internet (public) facing SharePoint site.

Creator, Larry Riemann of SharePoint 911 was kind enough to present his code design to the Cincinnati SPUG (SharePoint User Group) last evening at MAX Technical Training.  This was following my presentation on an easy site template scripted installation (blog post soon).  That place rocks BTW!  It cannot be said enough, thank you Denise Bartick and Stacey Creamer for your ongoing user group support!

Although I’m not a developer (or interested in becoming one) I was amazed at the complexity and simplicity of the code work he had presented.  As he stated over and over, this code was focused on universal functionality and “performant” (is that really a word?) response.
