I am using IE9 with ActiveX served from a no-name China CCTV DVR appliance. IE9 security settings had to be relaxed in order for the ActiveX script to be run at all, this is a common hassle with cheapo hardware using ActiveX for web interface. I even added the (internal) IP into the Trusted Sites and unchecked "Protected Mode".
Saving recorded videos to local drive completes without errors. But the files are not visible from a normal FileExplorer. The files are visible (and even playable) from the Save-As dialog launched by the ActiveX script. The file icons have yellow padlock at lower-left-corner. But they are invisible to a normal file explorer. My file explorer is set to Show Hidden Files and NOT-Hide protected operating system files.
Since I can play the video files from the ActiveX-launched Save-As dialog, this means that the video files are on my local disk somewhere. My question is how can I promote these files out of what seems like this IE9 virtual sandbox. (copying from the Save-As dialog and pasting somewhere else fails. TeraCopy says "System cannot find the file specified".
