Avoid "to protect your security IE has restricted this webpage" when launching local html
Posted on 2014-04-29
I am building a flash file to run in a continuous loop on a unmanned computer.
The flash file is embedded in a single HTML page that is located in the root of the local machine.
I keep getting the "to protect your security IE has restricted this webpage from running scripts or ActiveX controls that could access your computer." challenge on startup.
My understanding is that I can add a "Mark of the Web" to the HTML declaration, or change the security settings on the machine.
Since this machine is a single use machine in a locked cabinet with no keyboard or mouse, it is possible for me to change the security settings. However, it still has internet access for polling and content updates and is in a high visibility public facility so I'm always skittish about lowering my security settings.
What is the experts advice on how to launch a local HTML page using an automated script without the warning message?
