I.E. 8 and freeware TIFF reading app using ActiveX components and applying Windows XP Updates!!!
Posted on 2010-09-10
We log into an website and use an application. Within this application we open another window to view a TIFF file with a freeware app. It runs great.
However, every month after we apply our latest security updates to Windows XP we have the SAME problem.
The problem is after we apply the security updates and the user opens another windows to view the TIFF file with our freeware app. we are prompted to right click on the banner of the wondow for the ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO DOWNLOAD THIS FILE, or something to that effect.
If we reinstall the freeware TIFF reading app the problem goes away until we apply the latest security updates.
Now you would think this is not a big deal but in our department we have to open this window 50 or so times a day.
What can I do so we are not prompted with the security banner everytime we want to open this TIFF file in I.E. 8 on Windows XP????
