Please forgive me if this is the wrong forum to put this in. But this issue is occuring on Windows 7 Professional (32 bit)
We've had one of out teachers point out that when adding a flash video to a webpage in Dreamweaver (CS3), it doesn't show/open when you preview/open the page. I think I've narrowed it down to being an issue with networked home directories - Not narrowed very much I know! When I created a test page on my machine's hard drive, it worked fine. However, from my home directory, the page works, but the video part doesn't. This is the same for students and staff members alike. I have tried on my machine with both IE9 and Firefox 9.
X Accessing the resource 'N:\Dreamweaver\Project1\video.html' has been disallowed.'
We have got some file screen policies in place. But they are only blocking desktop.ini, Executable files and shortcuts - for all users, and just Executables for staff. I've even tried adding exceptions to allow Audio and Video Files, Executable Files, Web Pages etc - no luck.
Could anyone shed some light on this please? Would prefer to have them working by just clicking the file, but working by changing the start to N: would be a huge help.

Might be worth double checking if you got a test account, If you can do it with run enabled, but on a normal student account. As you can still have run "active" but without launching hidden programs etc (I think?).
I'll double check on one of our test student accounts later if I get time.
I'm assuming we're discussing run for local drive access rather than unc path? - as that way works for me, but unc seems broken - at least for flash videos. I shall have to get a test GPO set up and see where I get to next then.
Disabling 'Remove Run menu from Start Menu' allows the 'local' (but not local) drive method to work. So student home directories on N:\, but still the video does not show when the UNC path is in the address bar. So that's a step forward, so thank you. But still not perfect. This is at least a help. Any other ideas please?
[EDIT:] Just discovered that it works fine if users get to their documents through Computer - (N: ). That is quite interesting. We've had issues will Illustrator not wanting to open files from Documents (can't find file), but are fine though home directories, N route.
