Stopping the security prompts from a interactive CD
I have a interactive drugs cd for use in PHSE lessons. I have copied the contents of the cd to a folder in a shared area that students have access to. I have hidden all the files and folders except the index.htm file that is used to launch the contents. I have tested it all and all the links work fine.
My one problem is that a link launches a .exe file which is a flash based questionnaire. I then get prompted to 'save' , 'run' or 'cancel', If i click on run i then get prompted by another pop up box to run the application.
If i do all this it does work ok for pupils but is there anyway i can stop this from happening?

Put the location you are running the files from in your IE 'Trusted' Security Zone. You can do this in GPOs in the IE maintenance section.

It wont let me add to the trusted zone because it is a UNC path not a url.

try using the file prefix ie:
That may work, and yes all of the slashes seem to be necessary file:/// (protocol) //server/share (UNC path with reversed slashes) * (wild card permitting whole directory)

Looks like IE7 automatically cleans it up to file://server no matter what you put afterwards so it looks like it just opens up all content shared from that server.
Oh and full marks for completeness there Geoff
