ActiveX Barcode not scannable in Internet Explorer 11

We upgraded to IE 11, but now when we print barcodes from the web, they codes print unscannable, they are like dotted lines instead of solid lines. We are using the IDAutomation Linear ActiveX plugin to a web page to do the printing.

It seems that the ActiveX Component is being implemented in a classic ASP setup, which is no longer supported.

In this scenario, we recommend the ASP Barcode Generator Script, which has many options and is compatible with all major browsers.

These are being generated using the asp barcode component you mentioned, and printed on a Tharo h-427 printer.

We are unable to replicate the undesirable result, which could be an issue with Internet Explorer 11.

IDAutomation recommends the use of one of the following Code 128 streaming solutions, compatible with all major browsers:

* Dynamic Barcode Generator Subscription (hosted by IDAutomation)
* Java Barcode Servlet (hosted by your company)
* Streaming Barcode Server for IIS (hosted by your company)
* ASP Barcode Server Component for IIS (hosted by your company)

Please attach an image of the same barcode before and after the Internet Explorer upgrade so it may be analyzed.
