Re: IE 7 and .chms
After doing some research on the web, I found a site that says that
"this message is generated by IE when entries in the users HOSTS file
are preventing access from one or more servers designated in the web
page. In most cases, this occurs from 3rd party ad servers such as
"doubleclick", where the "Navigation canceled" message replaces an ad
banner in a hidden frame within the viewing page."
Can anyone explain to me what this means or how to fix it? We cannot
tell our customers that they cannot use IE 7. Thanks
It appears to mean that you need to edit the HOSTS file on the test machine by listing the network node where you have the .chm file. Look in your Windows directory for the file. You can read and edit it in Notepad. It should list the the machine hosting the .chm file by its network name.
If the file is on the same machine you're trying to test it from, then obviously the above suggestion is not the solution to the problem. In that case, perhaps someone else can offer a suggestion.
