IE Developer toolbar doesn’t run on Windows 2003

After installing IE Developer toolbar on Windows 2003 + IE7 you realize that it doesn’t start, even if installed properly. 😦

Because of “Enable third-party browser extensions *” (note the *) flag disabled in Tools -> Internet Options -> Advanced tab.

Here is a screenshot 🙂


… of course, you have to check that IE Dev Toolbar add-on is enabled too, this way:
Tools -> Manage add-ons -> Enable or disable add-ons -> IE Developer Toolbar BHO -> Enable


ps: I didn’t run a test before installing IE Dev Toolbar, but seems that NikHilk’s Web Development Helper doesn’t need “Enable third-party browser extensions” flag enabled. sorry for missed test 😦
