This fixed it....

* open a new "Command Prompt" window by right-clicking and selecting "Run
as administrator";
* at the prompt, run the command "regsvr32 actxprxy.dll".

Apparently this particular DLL does not get registered correctly for some
users. I have no idea why. Microsoft probably needs to research the various
software conflicts with the install, and correct this.
Merely running IE As Administrator once as suggested elsewhere was not adequate.
