GPS features: Known issues
Microsoft Active X
Personal interviewing uses a Microsoft ActiveX control when interacting with the location sensor. This might result in the Interviewer seeing this Windows Security Warning message:
An Active X control on this page might be unsafe to interact
with other parts of the page. Do you want to allow this interaction?
There are two ways to avoid the warning:
Enable Microsoft Internet Explorer's Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe for scripting setting: Tools > Internet Options > Security tab > Custom level.
Set the following registry value:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\0
Change the default value of 1201 to 0.
You might need to close all web browser instances before this change takes effect.
Inserting multiple GPS questions
A variable conflict error, in the GPSScript item, can occur when the same GPS question is inserted multiple times from Library > Questions > GPS. The error can be avoided by manually renaming the duplicate variables.
