Internet Explorer 8 and Visual Studio Wizards

It happened to one of my friend today. He was trying to add a class in an MFC application and got stuck when an error message came out. This error is caused by a change in the security policies of Internet Explorer 8 and is documented by a blogger on MSDN (click on title for original post).

A fix
  • Open regedit (on a 64-bit OS, open the 32-bit regedit)
  • Under “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet
    Settings\Zones”, create a new key called 1000 (if it isn't already there)
  • Under 1000, create a DWORD entry with:
    • Name = 1207
    • Type = REG_DWORD
    • Data = 0x000000
