First time I installed Siebel 8.0 on my new laptop and tried opening Sample Dedicated client but system prompt a message saying that :
"Your version of the Siebel High Interactivity Framework for IE, required for use of this Siebel application, may not be current. In order to download a current version of the Siebel High Interactivity Framework, please ensure that your browser security settings are correct and then log in to the application again. Consult your system administrator for details about the Siebel High Interactivity Framework and correct browser settings"
Now, this seems very easy as it was just asking for download it and everybody know when you open Siebel client for the first time, it automatically get downloaded on to the machine.
But, now let me tell what was the issue I was facing and how I got rid of it. When this message was appearing in, a bar was appearing under the Address bar in the Internet Explorer (to install the ActiveX Control) which requires a click so that it can install the Siebel High Interactivity framework (SHIF), but I was not able to click on that because at that moment the popup message was on screen with the "Ok" button. Once I click on "Ok" Siebel client gets closed since SHIF was not there. Again tried opening Siebel client, again the same message with Ok Button and the bar was appearing at the top of the screen where I can't click. Clicked on "OK", Siebel client got closed...... frustration!!!!
I thought it was due to some pop-up blocker or something, so I tried to change the browser settings but didn't get rid of it. Finally got one trick by which it got resolved. Here it is :
While opening Siebel Client, keep pressing "Ctrl" button on the keyboard and observe the difference. This time I didn't get the prompt message and automatically it prompt with the message of installing the SHIF and I clicked on Install and everything worked fine after that..... no issues.
