Removing pop ups from internal Visio2003 created html file.

Using Visio 2003, I create a web page that has multiple hyperlinks.  This then loads internal word and powerpoint documents.  This is all fine, but every time visio.htm loads it comes up with a pop-up blocker message, which you have to accept. If you load an external document and the go back (via IE7) - it comes up with the same security message.

I've tried modifying the security settings (custom), as per the help file, but I then get a red pop up indicating that the PCs security settings need fixing.

I don't really want to weaken my PC, I want these internal documents to be able to come up without a message.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for that, but how do I do that?  When I go into Tools, Options, Security, Trusted Sites and add the folder name C:\Documents and Settings\Andrew\Desktop\Test - it tells me that it is an invalid format.

ok try this

Not usually. When you first install Internet Explorer, it will check to see if you are on an intranet and set address checking appropriately. Your network administrator can also control whether Internet Explorer uses the intranet security zone settings. If Internet Explorer recognizes that you are on an intranet, you do not need to do anything else. If it does not recognize that you're on an intranet, follow these steps to to tell Internet Explorer that you are on one:

To tell Internet Explorer that you are on an intranet

In Internet Explorer, click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.
Click the Security tab, and then click Local intranet.
Click the Sites button.
In the Local intranet dialog box, clear the Automatically detect intranet network check box, if it is selected.
Select all other check boxes, and then click OK twice.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Thanks for that - but I am running on a stand alone laptop. But I get the same pop-ups and when I go to trusted sites - it still will not let me enter the path.

I agree that this is an extremely annoying problem. It has to do with the javascript and "active content" that Visio embeds in the saved web page files.

I believe you'll find the solution is quite simple. In IE 6 select Tools/Internet Options, scoll down to the Security section and place a checkmark next to "Allow active content to run in files on my computer". Close IE and restart  -- I think you'll be OK.
