Issue

The Download Link on the attachments page, which is spawned from Breeze Presenter, does not work by clicking it. It does work, however, by right-clicking on the link and selecting 'Save Target As...'

Reason

This is caused by Active Content, along with Mark of the Web, interfering with the ability of Internet Explorer to download the file.

Solution

As mentioned above, users may simply right-click on the link and select 'Save Target As...' to download the file.

Alternatively, the Mark of the Web must be removed, and Active Content must be enabled on the computer viewing the presentation.

Note: The following steps reduce the security settings of your system and should only be followed if you are sure you want to decrease the default security settings of Windows.

To remove the Mark of the Web, follow the steps below.

  1. Open Notepad.
  2. Select File > Open.
  3. Browse to the directory with your Breeze Presenter presentation.
  4. Browse to the Data\Resources folder.
  5. Select the docwrap.htm file and open it.
  6. Delete the following line from the file:

    <!-- saved from url=(0014)about:internet -->
  7. Save the file.
  8. Select File > Open in Notepad.
  9. Browse to the main presentation directory.
  10. Locate and open index.html.
  11. Delete the following line from the file:

    <!-- saved from url=(0014)about:internet -->
  12. Exit Notepad.

The Mark of the Web is now removed.

Note: After each generation, the Mark of the Web will need to be removed, following the steps above.

To enable active content on the computer, follow the steps below. (Note: This can only be done on computers running Internet Explorer and Windows XP SP2.):

  1. Open Internet Explorer.
  2. Select Tools > Internet Options.
  3. Click the Advanced tab.
  4. Scroll down to the Security section.
  5. Check 'Allow active Content to run in files on My Computer.'
  6. Click OK.

The download link should now work correctly.
