Turning off Windows XP "File Download Security Warning" popup
Posted on 2004-10-09
I have created a web page on my local computer. XP Service Pack 2.
This web page will NOT be on the internet. It will be for a demo on my client's local computer. The links on the HTML page are to executables (videos avi files which have been converted to executables.) The html page is serving as a menu for the various executable videos.
But when I click on the links, I get the "File Download Security Warning", asking if I want to Run or Save or Cancel. I need to turn OFF this warning so it just plays the executable.
Changing the avi file to something other than the executable *exe file is not an option. It must be the executable and it cannot be changed.
I assume this is either an operating system warning or an internet explorer error message. But I need to turn it off.
