When attempting to open a FILE link from Outlook 2010 I get the error "This operation has been canceled due to restrictions on this computer. Please contact your system administrator:
Operation CanceledNote that this is a file on a network mapped drive, not an IE hyperlink. All comments and solutions I've come across so far have to do with hyperlink and html. Not my case.

This computer is running in an AD/DC domain with group policies in place. What do I need to change? I want to change the related group policy, not registry settings on each individual workstations.

David Johnson:
can you normally access that file share?
Yes, that is the main office shared drive where everything is stored and where people do most of their work.

Sajid Shaik: That link, and others I've found like it, have to do with html and Internet Explorer. This is not an html file and should be opened by Windows Explorer, not Internet Explorer.

I believe I have some group policy issue afoot.

Under Group Policy Management > "Protected View, Trust Center Office 2010" (my name) > Edit > User Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Microsoft Office 2010 > Security Settings > Trust Center, I've added "X:\" as a trusted location. But, that doesn't seem to help.

Sorry for the delay. Yes, I was finally able to add the shared drive as a trusted location. Not sure what I did wrong the first time.
