How do i disable this Open File - Security Warning dialog box? everything i find involves adding ip's to trusted sites etc. but this application is installed locally. I've already unblocked the exe from the properties window, however that didn't help
If you are using IE 7/8, Go to Tools / Internet Options / Security and click on the local Intranet Icon. Then, click the sites button. Make sure "Automatically detect Intranet Network" is unchecked and the following items are checked, "Include all lical (intranet) sites not listed in other zones", Include all sites that bypass the proxy server", and "Include all network paths (UNC's)".
I would only do this is the file you are try to access / execute is located on your local file server and unblocking the file is not working. I used to have this problem with our ERP application who's .exe file resided on our file server. After upgrading our clients web browsers from IE6 to IE 7 or 8 we started to get the same error message. The above steps are what fixed it.
