I am running PowerPoint 2007 and I want to include a hyperlink to a local Flash swf file. I know that I can embed Flash movies in PowerPoint and I have done this many times. But, for this presentation, I need to use a button in my PowerPoint slide that will open the Flash movie in a new swf player window. This works fine, except that I can't get rid of the warning that pops up before the movie window opens. The Microsoft Office warning box says:
"Some files can contain viruses or otherwise be harmful.....etc.. Would you like to open this file?"
I have seen the Microsoft Support solution for disabling this warning box (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/925757
And I have tried the suggestions indicated in this Knowledge Base report. But, I am still getting the warning message.
I believe there was an earlier similiar question posted on Experts-Exchange, but it also offered only the same suggestions as indicated in the Microsoft Knowledge Base report.
Any other ideas on how I can disable this message from appearing whenever I use a hyperlink button in a PowerPoint slide to open a swf file?
