DHTML control stripped from IE7 in Vista

One of the things that made IE soooooooo much better than any other browser was its included DHTML editing component (created HTML in real time using a WYSIWYG interface).

 
Being a developer, I used this control all the time to create interfaces for website content.  Microsoft’s own Outlook Web Access uses this control…
but if you use Vista then you’re out of luck… IE7 doesn’t have the control anymore.  When I try to use Outlook Web Access I do anything with mail except delete it.
 
MS removed this control to make IE more secure, but I use it all the time.  Here’s how to add the functionality back.
 
First copy hdtmled.ocx and triedit.dll from an existing XP machine…
 
RESOLUTION
Unregister and reregister the Triedit.dll by entering the following command in the Run box, accessed from the Start button, or within the Command Prompt:
regsvr32 /u “c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\triedit\triedit.dll”
regsvr32 “c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\triedit\triedit.dll”

Unregister and reregister the Dhtmled.ocx by entering the following command in the Run box, accessed from the Start button, or within the Command Prompt:


regsvr32 /u “c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\triedit\dhtmled.ocx”
regsvr32 “c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\triedit\dhtmled.ocx”
You can also download this redistributable file from Microsoft that adds the functionality back:
