xp SP2 issue for restricted domain users
I have been looking at using the grid and other controls in commercial web based application. Unfortunately all of our clients seem to still be using IE6, with most of them on Win XP SP2. As they are users in sometimes large companies their systems are probably going to be restrcited so they cannot get to their internet options as part of their domain security.
Is there any way at all that I can modify these controls to prevent the stupid security warnings of SP2 being presented as because most of our clients being not technical in the understanding of active X and active scripting would not tolerate these warning.
If there is a workaround for this issue, I would love to implement these controls in our application as they really are great.
Am seeing the the IE browser warning at the top of the page saying some active x or scripting object may not be safe. Its the tool bar that when you click it you can choose allow to allow this scripting to run. When you do this the page refreshed and the content is shown.
Annoyingly, 1 XP machine is showing this and the other is not.
This warning is 1 of the new features (Laughs!!) which was implementated on SP2.
Is this simply a live with it scenario?
Thanks for the response
Have been having a play with this and am getting more and more confused.
I have created a page called test.htm which contains 2 grids. When I open this from my desktop IE6 comes up with this warning. If I upload to my webspace and access it via my https site it does not provide a warning.
This is good news as my application all runs over SSL, but just a bit nervous that M$ may change their security popups on this. Not that I am implying that M$ change their minds or have oversights of course (LOL!)
Seriously though does anyone know why this is happening??
Message on browser when running from local: "To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this file from showing active content that coul access your computer. Click here for options...".
If you click the bar at the top your options are "Allow blocked Content" and "Whats the risk". If I click the "Allow blocked content" the page reloads and the grids are diaplayed.
ps. thanks for everyone's help so far on this.
The scripting section Jim referrs to is in the security tab of internet options when you clikc custom level.
If that same file is put below the web server and referred with http then the warning doesn't display.
Many thanks for all your help
