I have some problems with the internet security. Hope you could guide and assist me. As mentioned in the earlier messages regarding the exe, dlls and vbscript that launches client side exe file, I currently face almost the similar problems. I haven't got my application a digital certificate. However, I noticed that when I select 'enable' for the my Internet Security settings, 3rd setting of the ActiveX controls and plug-ins, which is the "initialize and script ActiveX contols not marked as safe", the pop up disappear. However, as I know, most computer's default settings for this is 'disabled'. I wonder this problem could be solved if I digitally sign this application. I don't think requesting the user to manually change their internet settings is a good method. However, I am not sure if getting Digital certificate will solve this problems. The following is the script i wrote for vbscript (on my webpage) to call client side exe file.
Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
if fso.FileExists("C:\Program Files\IEBAudioRecorder\test.txt") then 'Give whole path to the file here
WshShell.Run("C:\Progra~1\IEBAud~1\AudioRecorder.exe") 'run one.exe program
msgbox("file not found, please download it")
WshShell.Run("http://blackfeet:90/library/IEBSoundRecorder.exe") 'download installer from the server
I wonder if the problem comes from the code above or due to unsigned application. Hope you could guide me through this. Looking forward to your reply soon.
Thanks in advance,
