How to Get ActiveX to Work on a Mac

By Greyson Ferguson

ActiveX is a programming application designed for use on Windows-based computers. However, if you own a Mac system you can also use ActiveX, although the download required to use the programming on a Mac is different from a Windows download. This is due to the operating system differences between a Mac and a Windows-based computer.

Things You'll Need

  • Internet access

Step 1

Launch the Internet browser on your Mac computer. Click on the download link provided in the Resources section below.

Step 2

Click the "Download" tab, and the ActiveX download begins on the computer. The program application is not large, so it shouldn't take very long to complete.

Step 3

Double-click the downloaded Mac ActiveX download in the "Downloads" window (or double-click the desktop icon) to launch the installation.

Step 4

Follow the installation prompts to complete the ActiveX setup.
