Due to recent updates from Microsoft to their Internet Explorer browser”updated as part of the Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) update”local playback of Macromedia Authorware Web Player content prompts message shown below.
Internet Explorer blocks active content that is running locally on your computer unless the content is associated with a domain. This is due to the browser enforcing greater access restrictions for its content when it is local than when it comes from the web.
The options in the browser information bar allow you to enable active content that you are trying to run in the browser. When the Enable Active Content dialog box (shown above) appears, click OK to run the content you are trying to access.
To playback Authorware Web Player content without the Enable Active Content dialog box appearing, you will need to identify your content with a particular domain by embedding the Authorware Web Player content in HTML and adding a " Mark of the web" to your HTML code. The following code is an example of a Mark of the web:
<!-- saved from url=(0022)http://www.yoururl.com -->
To include the code above in your projects, you will need to update the URL to point to your domain, and you need to update the number (0022) to the correct number for your domain. This number indicates how many characters are in your domain name (beginning with the "h" in http, and ending with the last letter of your domain”for example, the "m" in .com).
