XFDRuntime .NET control cannot be instantiated when .NET Framework is not installed or properly configured or when a pop-up blocker is blocking the communication.
Microsoft .NET Framework configuration
Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 or .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 must be installed and properly configured on your machine in order to run STARLIMS v10 application.
To configure .NET Framework download this script (requires administrative rights).
Due to latest updates and security patches introduced by Microsoft updates, additional steps need to be followed in order to configure Internet Explorer browser to allow STARLIMS client to run.

Internet Explorer settings
The following versions of Internet Explorer are supported by STARLIMS: IE7, IE8, IE9, IE10, IE11.
Your popup blocker should be configured to allow popups.
If you have Internet Explorer 7 or higher, it comes with a pop up blocker. To change your settings select "Tools" from the menu at the top, then "Pop Up Blocker", then "Pop Up Blocker Settings". There you can add STARLIMS installation web site to allowed list.
When a pop up is blocked you will get a notification line towards the top of the window. While STARLIMS works fine when Google Toolbar is configured to allow popups from installation web site, it is recommended to completely disable Google Popup blocker.
