Macro security level and digital signature setting on terminal services
Posted on 2007-11-23
I am aware there are a number of posts already with a similar issue, however this appears to be on a machine by machine basis.
I have a terminal server that users run an application on which essentially is a access database. A copy is made from the source when run which the individual user then works from.
When run, the database loads and then the user receives the error in a window 'Security Warning - This file may not be safe if it contains code that was intended to harm your computer'. I am aware that this is caused by both/either:
1. the macro security level being set to Medium or High, or
2. the application requiring a digital signature being associated with it.
My first choice is to just change the macro security level so that any access database will just open when run. Therefore, my first question is, is there a way of setting this macro security level for all users on terminal services as opposed having to change this setting for all users individually? Secondly, if it is possible, can this same setting be applied if only a runtime version of access is installed on the terminal services.
If the above is not possible and/or digital signing is the best option I then have a third question. It appears to be easy enough to create a digital signature for in house use, however I appear to then have a similar issue (as above) where I will need to install this cerificate for every user on terminal services individually. Therefore is there a way of installing and trusting this digital signature for all users on the terminal server?
Thanks in advance
