MS Project Server Web Access – ActiveX registration error fix

No fix for this error? Read below, it might help.

The controls for Microsoft Project Web Access could not be downloaded correctly.
Please check your security settings in Internet Explorer or contact your system administrator.

I got this error two times: last year and I have fixed by using another account from the same machine, but this time I could not use another account… unfortunately.
After googling some time and trying this methods:

– Method 1: Configure Internet Explorer to permit the downloading of ActiveX controls.
– Method 2: Log on to your computer as Administrator, and then start Project Web Access to download the ActiveX controls.
– Method 3: Manually register the ActiveX controls.

Nothing worked to force the IE6 to accept the cabs. After some time, I have noticed a tooltip when you move the mouse pointer over the message that appears. The tooltip said something about revocation server offline.

I went back to google but nothing useful. So, I had a last look into IE6 settings and I have found this:

Check for server certificate revocation

After checking that option and restarting the IE everything went as expected.

Here is what worked for me:
