- We've explained this to our customers as a safety feature introduced by
Microsoft and how to click on the bar to allow the svg to run, etc. The
customers have had no problem accepting this explanation.
But, if you really want to remove the restriction, you can turn-off the
protection it provides by having the user go to the IE Tools --> Internet
Options menu item. Select the Advanced tab. Scroll down to the Security
section, and check "Allow active content to run in files on My Computer."
Click OK and your users won't be bothered again. But, they also won't have
the protection this option affords.

to run off a CD. Unfortunately, upon launching the initial window in
IE6, a warning appears in the info bar at the top of the browser,
prompting the user for approval to run 'active content.' It's a bit
of a roadblock for our user base.
This app ran just fine in IE5.5 and in other operating systems. This
hurdle is causing some concern with management about our user base
being able to deal with this warning message easily. We would prefer
to not have to deal with it all ;)
Is there any way to disable security in a user's browser? I've tried
to lower security on my test system to its lowest setting, but the
warning message still appears.
Unfortunately, switching to another browser is not an option.
Getting our entire target audience to use another browser just
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

warnings won't happen.
sorry, I just now saw this reply. Thanks for the idea. I wasn't aware
there was anything that portable, I'll check it out.

I use the standard 'svgcheck' that adobe offers to check for
installation of the plugin. We also include it on the CD in case the
user doesn't have a live internet connection. And it's included in
the list of system requirements on the CD packaging.
I was initially just trying to get rid of the annoying messages
during development. Once you open a browser window in IE, and
approved running scripts, it doesn't prompt you again.
I was able to disable it on my browser manually (TOOLS>INTERNET
OPTIONS>ADVANCED tab >"allow active content from CDs to run on My
Computer") thanks to another poster in this group. We'll have to
simply include written instructions for our users to make this
selection in their browser.
Because it's a security selection, it doesn't appear to be
changeable by a script.
Thanks for the response, Mark.
