Hi

I am writing an *installation* program for a multimedia presentation which uses Internet Explorer.

Is there a way programmatically to set the internet options of IE, specifically to make images, sounds and animations available so that the presentation will always show the same on any windows machine?

Regards

John

hi,
sure as most items are under this key in registry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main

check also under the other keys under
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer
to see what you can find .

heres an example of setting the play animations to yes:

uses registry;

var
MyRegistry:TRegistry;
begin
MyRegistry:=TRegistry.Create;
With MyRegistry do begin
RootKey:=HKEY_CURRENT_USER;
OpenKey('\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main',True);
WriteString ('Play_Animations','yes');
CloseKey;
end;
MyRegistry.Free;
end;
