A workstation is processed successfully with Resource Update Manager (RUM) and moved to the target Domain. Upon login to the new domain and launching Internet Explorer, the user is prompted with a message stating ‘Several add-ons are ready for use’, with an option to ‘Choose add-ons’ or ‘Don’t enable’.
If the customer clicks on ‘Don’t enable’, then those add-ons, which were previously enabled, become disabled.
This is caused by 2 factors:
When a new add-on is installed, the following Group Policy setting forces the pop-up prompt, causing the end-user to grant consent:
Computer Configuration | Administrative Templates | Windows Components | Internet Explorer |
"Automatically activate/enable newly installed add-ons"
User Consent, once received, is stored in Protected Storage, then the add-on hash is added to the registry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\INTERNET EXPLORER\APPROVED EXTENSIONS.
Though RUM Processing updates the HKEY_CURRENT_USER branch of the registry, RUM cannot process Protected Storage. After a processing, the User Consent is lost and the Group Policy settings take over.
