I have a commercial Network Addressable Storage (NAS) that I use as a file storage location with multiple computers and operating systems. I prefer to get to it by its IP address rather than set it up as a custom Windows device... which is possible, but which I do not understand, am not comfortable using, and will not use.
There are several Windows (only) executable files stored there as well, so they don't have to be on every XP computer, and I know all computers will be using the same version.
If I copy one of these executable files into a folder on my C: drive and run it from there (via a double click in windows explorer), it runs just fine. However, if open the NAS folder containing the program in windows explorer and run it with a double click, XP gives me a dialog saying: "Open File - Security Warning. The publisher can not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this software?"
This gets to be annoying. It is apparent that XP has some trust issue with files on the NAS different from files on the C: drive.
Is there any way to prevent XP from presenting me with that dialog?
