This problem may affect VLF application developers when they attempt to save form layout changes made via the Form Layout Assistant (FLA).

The problem is characterized by this error message being displayed:

Error message

The problem occurs because the developer's Internet Explorer security settings will not allow an Active-X control that is required to write the layout changes back to the server to be created.

The recommended solution to this problem is to add the development server's IP address or host name into the Internet Explorer's trusted site list.
