What is licmgr10.dll?

Part of ActiveX License Manager by Microsoft

What is it?

When you add an ActiveX control to a Web page, you are distributing it to any users who download the control from the page. Unless you license the control, there is little to prevent an end user from taking your control and using it in their own applications. The license acts as a kind of copyright for your control, preventing unauthorized use.
Description of licmgr10.dll from Microsoft
Licensing ActiveX controls for use on the Internet is a complex subject. An expression in a license such as "used on one computer" has a totally different meaning on the Internet when the "one computer" may be an HTTP server that is hosting 200 different IP addresses. The software may be in-use (running in memory) on thousands of anonymous computers and never in use on the computer for which it was licensed. These issues should be reviewed before you license your ActiveX controls for use on the Internet.

How is licmgr10.dll loaded?

Safe for scripting control - licmgr10.dll has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {5220cb21-c88d-11cf-b347-00aa00a28331} with and identifier of CLSID\{5220cb21-c88d-11cf-b347-00aa00a28331}\Implemented Categories\{7DD95801-9882-11CF-9FA9-00AA006C42C4}. Safe for scripting is a Windows policy that disables the Internet Explorer security prompt for Windows Installer scripts. It allows Web-based programs to install software on the computer without notifying the user. By default, when a script hosted by an Internet browser tries to install a program on the system, the system warns users and allows them to select or refuse the installation. This setting suppresses the warning and allows the installation to proceed.
Safe for initializing control - licmgr10.dll has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {5220cb21-c88d-11cf-b347-00aa00a28331} with and identifier of CLSID\{5220cb21-c88d-11cf-b347-00aa00a28331}\Implemented Categories\{7DD95802-9882-11CF-9FA9-00AA006C42C4}. When a program is initialized, it can receive data from another program for initializing its state. This is a potential security hazard because the data could come from an untrusted source. Programs that guarantee no security breach regardless of the data source are considered safe for initialization and are registered as such.
