    FP in IE7 not opening

    Level 7
      http://hostaregistrar.org/hosta_registration_lists.asp

      All my FlashPaper document are not opening in the latest version of IE7. Is
      there a workaround for this problem. I have upgraded to the newest version
      of the Flash Player but they still do not open.

          I have had the same problem as Bobby. I have the official release of IE7 and use the latest version of FlashPaper a lot in my online classes (it's lighter than PDF, usually). IE6 opens these documents just fine, and Firefox 2 displays Flashpaper well, too.

          This is, I assume, an issue with IE7, unless someone knows a workaround. Another piece of information: IE7 can display Flashpaper documents from the desktop; it's just when those Flashpaper documents are online that the display fails.

          Ay ideas?

            This problem has really got my goat. My FlashPaper files display just fine in the 3rd beta of IE7, but not in the final release. I can only think support for FlashPaper was removed on purpose. Back to Firefox, I guess!

              Work-around: Make the site with FlashPaper a "trusted site" in IE7. From the menu,
              click on Tools==>Internet Options==>Security Tab
              then select the Trusted Sites (Green Checkmark),
              then click the "Sites" button. Un-check "Require Server Verfication" if necessary,
              and after making sure your site's URL is correctly entered in the textbox,
              click the Add button, then Close/OK.

              This is a real problem, and Adobe should work with Microsoft (and vice versa) to make sure Microsoft gets it fixed. FlashPaper is just too cool a product to let IE7 bugs get in its way.

                Thanks for this workaround. I have implemented it, and have posted your remedy to my students.

                I agree entirely with your conclusion that MS and Adobe need to get this worked out. The fact that the last beta of IE7 worked with FlashPaper, and then the released product doesn't, poses a real territorial issue. In their political scrappings, both MS and Adobe have forgotten whom they're serving...very sad...

                  Thank you for the work-around. To bad our site visitors will be missing
                  this.

                  At least I make sure to have both FlashPaper and PDF files together.
