Error message when opening an link inside the PPT.

Hi,

I am currently working on a application, which contains a PPT file embedded with exe, doc and Excel file inside the Power point. When I try to open a link inside the PPT. Each time If I open the link I am getting the below message.

A error message popup 'Some files can contain Viruses or otherwise be harmful to your computer. It is important to be certain that this file is from a trustworthy source. Would you like to open this file. Click ok to continue. The exe file will invoke.
I have checked both the version of office 2003 and office 2007 and still issue have't resolved. I also tried by enabling the macros in Power Point.

Please can any one of you help me how to suppress the message?

By disabling the message (IIRC, you have to mark EXEs as being safe to execute) you open up the machine to running any EXE attached or embedded in any document, an environment which might best be described as "sub-optimal".

Googled using the search term:

Office "Some files can contain viruses or otherwise be harmful to your computer"

Took 0.48 seconds and the above was the first hit.

What exactly did you try from the KB article?

I tried but it doesn't work. Have you tried running ProcMon alongside to see whether or not the registry values are actually read? I presume that, if you tested with 2007, that you used the appropriate version number? That is, Office 2003's settings will be stored beneath 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\11.0\' whereas I imagine 2007 will be under 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\13.0\', certainly under some number higher than '11'.
Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.
