Error: 'Product installer requires Internet Explorer 5.0 or later' occurs when installing Control Center.

Error: 'Product installer requires Internet Explorer 5.0 or later. To run this setup program without using the Product Installer, run the Intel\Setup.exe file on this CD in the subdirectory for the product you want to install.'


To address this issue, you must enable or allow the specific active content to appear for the Control Center start-up page. 

To enable active content for the start-up page without disabling pop-ups:

  1. Open the Control Center start-up page.
  2. Once the error message is displayed, click Back in your Internet Explorer Web browser.
  3. Click the Information Bar (the yellow bar that appears when pop-ups are blocked) and select Allow Blocked Content.
  4. A Security Warning window will appear.  You need to click Yes to allow the active content to run.
  5. Click your browser Back button to return to the AppManager Control Center 6.0 setup page.
  6. Proceed with your Control Center installation as normal.


The Internet Explorer pop-up blocker prevents the Autorun (setup) page from displaying, even when pop-ups are allowed for that computer.
