C2012 - How do I make my site trusted for web-packaged files without asking the end user?

by - Joseph Ganci

I know that I can set the bypass security window in aam files by changing the setting to TRUE. But my piece is running under non-trusting mode.

I also know that if I click on "OK" button when its first come out, it won't come out anymore.

Is there a way to bypass the window and yet the piece is running in the trusting mode. I need it to be in trusting mode because I'm using a JumpFileReturn function. So there must be some value in FileLocation's variable.

This is the request by my client's, they dont want the security window to display at all.

You can do what you need, but you have to add an entry to a file that you will find (or that you will need to create) in your Windows folder called Awshkwv.ini. In it, you will find a series of lines like the following:

# Security settings:
Security = TrustOnlyListed
WarnNonTrusted = ON
WarnTrusted = OFF
TrustedSite =
TrustedSite =

You can list as many sites as you like at the end of the file contents. Of course, to do this, you will need to have access to the user's machine before they take your course. Most people opt to do this by allowing users to download a small installation program that sets up the Awshkwv.ini file for them. Good luck!
