Allow javascript button to work in Internet Explorer Server 2003

We have a website that uploads files for us.

Users are logged into the terminal server and when they click the browse files button which calls a javascript function it does nothing.

This works on everyones computers just not from the server

Where can I add an exception to allow this site to work.

That did not work.

And I was mistaken it does not work on EVERYONE'S computers. There are a few users that cannot do it from their PCs either.

I think I found the issue.

It works on Flash 9.

I upgraded my flash to flash 10 and now it does not work!

Now I need to downgrade my pc to flash 9 (until the website is upgraded)... not sure how
Tyler LaczkoAuthor Commented:
found a installer for fp9 uninstalled 10 installed 9 and it works.
