  • Internet Explorer 8 problem while running index.hta training video file!

    Hello All,
    I am trying to run some CBT Nuggets video training stuff for the lats one week, but which doesn't seem to work due to some IE8 settings.
    When I run the 'index.hta' file from the CBT folder, the CBT nuggets media player opens up in IE8 with a warning
    ''To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this webpage from running scripts or ActiveX controls that could access your computer. Click here for options''
    And when I click 'allow the blocked content' from the notice bar, it pops up another warning 'Scripts are usually safe. Do you want to allow scripts to run?' , OK I keep on licking YES to this warning and reach to CBT videos index page.
    Now, when I click on the menu links it again asks with 'Scripts are usually safe. Do you want to allow scripts to run?' I click YES again till it ends up with another information bar:
    "An add-on for this website failed to run. Check the security settings in Internet options for potential conflicts.", here no further options to go ahead and I am stuck with black screen media page!!!!??
    I tried several tweaks which I found on search..nothing helped?
    Please advise, what are the needed apt modifications in IE8? Or is there any other tools to play this video?
    NB: My PC Win XP pro SP3, IE8.

    Install FireFox and try again.

      Where are you running the contents from???

      You could try and add the checkbox from Tools/Internet Options/Advanced/Allow Active Content from CDs to Run on my Computer and also Tools/Internet Options/Advanced/Allow Active Content to Run in files on my computer. Restart IE and it should work.

        It's the first troubleshoot I tried, but does not work. The result when I enabled both of the options was, it did not ask for 'allow scripts to run', but the IE media player window remained black.

          Firefox doesn't work with CBT videos index.hta. I already tried it...

            Programs That Use It
            • If running a Windows-based operating system, commonly used programs that can run .hta executables include Internet Explorer, Adobe Dreamweaver and Mozilla Firefox. People running Mac operating systems will need to download Internet Explorer for Mac to run .hta files


            Looks like you may have a different that it not running on IE.

            Have a look in the Event Viewer and see if there are any error that relate to this problem.

              Also look at the codecs that you need to run CBT nuggets if it's staying black.
