Hello, everyone!

In some situations, Internet Explorer (IE) blocks active content. <snip> *
I'm creating my help system in RoboHelp (using WebHelp). <snip again> I get
this message:

"To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this
file from showing active content that could access your computer. Click
here for options..."

Hey Keith:

The message also does not appear if the WebHelp files are housed on a LAN,
either. They don't necessarily need to be placed on a Web server to get rid
of the message.

I develop on my hard drive, but set a path to generate WebHelp to a LAN
location each time, for two reasons:

1. I don't have to click that (stupid) message each time when I want to look
at my output.
2. My SMEs can see the progress I've made, and also provide feedback. The
LAN path stays the same each time.

Hope this helps.
