With due thanks to the Maxthon forum, a modified version of their registry entries activates the SP2 features in AB, including the information bar when using avant.exe

Worked beautifully for me (I couldn't get the info bar before either)

Hope it helps others as well.

To use SP2 features :

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_SECURITYBAND]
"Avant.exe"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_RESTRICT_ACTIVEXINSTALL]
"Avant.exe"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_RESTRICT_FILEDOWNLOAD]
"Avant.exe"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_LOCALMACHINE_LOCKDOWN]
"Avant.exe"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_WEBOC_POPUPMANAGEMENT]

Here you say the information bar works, but...

...Here you don't.

Which is it?

Edit: I tested it and the information bar works. Yay. I don't know what I did wrong. Oh well.

He's saying that this worked beautifully for him as he was also one who could not get the information bar to show in Avant. :wink:

Just a word to the uninformed (or impatient) you must log off and on again (or restart windows) for the registry hack to work, just exitting and restarting Avant won't work.
