    internet explorer cannot run local file after SP2

    Ok, we are having a thought problem at work.
    On the Intranet page, we have a link that opens up a file that is installed locally. We need this because this program connects to a device that is conected thru serial port in the local computer.
    We hard coded the name file in the page and it has worked wonderfully until SP2.
    If I save a copy of the web page in the HDD it will run the file, but not from the page served from the server.
    I have to find a way to resolve this. Suggestions?? Help??

    Do you get a prompt to save and run the file dehc?

    I know i had an issue with the new IE updates that would not let me download a file. When I looked under the tools menu, I noticed that there were a couple of new menus and after poking around in them, I found the problem. Unfortunately, I'm at work and dont have my PC in front of me to be more specific.

    You should be able to add the location of that file to the TRUSTED zone. I has a *similar* problem in the office also.
