The Active-X Dialog With DayBook's file-system storage activated, Internet Explorer will typically display a confirmation

dialog window each time DayBook is launched. This dialog, which asks whether you want to allow an Active-X control to interact with the page in the browser, is part of IE's security system. However, if you frequently launch DayBook this can become an annoyance. To avoid seeing the dialog when you start DayBook, you will need make DayBook a part of an IE Security Zone in which it is reasonable to enable the security setting: "Initialize and script Active-X controls not marked as safe." Practically speaking, the two security zones where this could be done are the 'Local Intranet' zone and the 'Trusted Sites' zone. Using the 'Trusted Sites' zone is preferable because it is site-specific. Keep in mind as you proceed, that enabling the Active-X setting described creates a potential danger to your computer and data. DayBook does not recommend or advocate that you proceed with this process. It needs to be your own decision. Background IE considers files stored on the computer's local hard drive(s) to be a part of the non-changeable 'My Computer' zone, which by default has settings similar to the 'Internet Zone'. Files that have a UNC file path (basically files in shared folders, and on mapped or network drives) are, by default, part of the 'Local Intranet' zone. And, a UNC path is required to add a local or network "site" to the 'Trusted Sites' zone. Thus, the first step in assigning DayBook to one of these security zones is to make it a shared folder and optionally a mapped drive. If you have an existing mapped local folder share or a network drive/share, installing DayBook to this location is the easiest way to give it a UNC path (and automatically add it to the 'Intranet Zone'). Alternately — and as described in this procedure — you can make the DayBook folder on your local hard drive a share (shared folder), then add your local computer to the 'Trusted Sites' zone. (This makes the UNC shares on the local computer part of the trusted zone.) The directions below describe how to configure the DayBook folder on your local hard drive as a shared folder and then, optionally, a mapped drive. (This drive does not have to be shared with other users — you determine that by the security settings you implement for the share.)

Task 1: Make DayBook a Shared Folder Open Windows Explorer and go to the DayBook root folder. Right-click on the DayBook folder's icon and select 'Sharing' from the context menu — a dialog window should appear. Select the dialog's 'Sharing' tab. Type a name, such as "MyDayBook" in the 'Share Name' textbox. Set the share's access permissions and/or password to meet your security needs. Click 'Okay' to save your changes. Now, when you view the DayBook folder in Windows Explorer, it's folder icon should have an arm and hand at the bottom indicating that it is shared. If you choose not to map a drive letter to the shared folder (you can do this at a later time, if desired), you will need to skip to the task named "Add Computer's UNC Name to 'Trusted Sites' Zone" below. Task 2: Make DayBook a Mapped Drive (optional) From Windows Explorer's Tools menu select 'Map Network Drive' -- a dialog will open. In the 'Drive' dropdown list, select an unused drive letter to assign to the DayBook share. In the 'Folder' dropdown list, select the 'Share Name' you created earlier. If it is not there, use the 'Browse' button to select from the available network resources. Verify that the check box named 'Reconnect on Login' has a check mark in it. Click 'Finish' to save your changes. Close Windows Explorer. Go to the next task, "Add Computer's UNC Name to 'Trusted Sites' Zone" below, to make your computer's shared folders and mapped drives a trusted site. Task 3: Add Computer's UNC Name to 'Trusted Sites' Zone

Note: You will need the name of your computer before proceeding. You can find the computer's name in the System or Network section of the Windows Control Panel (varies with Windows versions). Launch Internet Explorer. From the IE Tools menu, select 'Internet Options' — a multi-tabbed dialog will open. Select the 'Security' tab in the dialog. Select the icon for the 'Trusted Sites' zone. Click the 'Sites' button — a sub-dialog will open. In the textbox named "Add this Web site to the zone:" type your computer's name in the following format (assuming the computer's name is "MyComputer"): file:\\MyComputer Then click the 'Add' button — the text you typed should appear in the listing below the textbox. Close the sites sub-dialog by clicking 'OK'. Click the 'Trusted Zone' icon on the 'Security' tab of the dialog, then click the 'Custom Level' button — another sub-dialog will appear. Scroll the list of security settings until you see: "Initialize and script Active-X controls not marked as safe." Under this setting there are three options: 'Disable', 'Enable' and 'Prompt'. Click the 'Enable' option to activate it. Close the settings sub-dialog by clicking 'OK' on the sub-dialog (and the confirmation dialog box that follows). Close the 'Internet Options' dialog by clicking 'OK'. Go to the next task, "Modify or Create Shortcuts to DayBook", so you can load DayBook from the trusted site location that was created. Task 4: Modify or Create Shortcuts to DayBook For Internet Explorer to recognize that it is loading DayBook from a trusted site

(rather than an ordinary location on the computer's hard disk), the location that appears in IE's Address Bar must be the mapped drive you created or the UNCformat path to DayBook. The easiest way to do this is to create a Windows shortcut (or modify an existing shortcut to use the mapped drive letter or the UNC path. You can do this by following the steps below: Assume: The computer's name is: "MyComputer" (without quotemarks). Assume: DayBook was installed at: "C:\Data\DayBook" (without quotemarks). Assume: The DayBook folder is shared as: "MyDayBook" (without quotemarks). Assume: The DayBook folder is mapped as drive letter: "Z:" (without quotemarks). Create a DayBook Shortcut (if one doesn't exist) Open Windows Explorer. Navigate to the DayBook folder ("C:\Data\DayBook"). Select the file named "lsiDayBook-Desktop.htm" Create a shortcut on the desktop: - Right-click on this file to open the context menu. - Go to the "Send To" item in the context menu. - Select "Desktop" from the submenu. Close Windows Explorer. Modify the Shortcut Find the DayBook shortcut on the desktop. Right-click on the shortcut to open the context menu. Select 'Properties' from the context menu — a properties dialog will open. Select the 'Shortcut' tab of the properties dialog. Modify the entry labeled "Target": To use a UNC path: - The entry should say:
"C:\Data\DayBook\lsiDayBook-Desktop.htm".

- Replace the text "C:\Data\DayBook" with the computer name and the share name using the format:
\\ComputerName\ShareName

which in our example becomes:
\\MyComputer\MyDayBook

- The resulting entry should say:
\\MyComputer\MyDayBook\lsiDayBook-Desktop.htm

To use a mapped drive: - Replace the text "C:\Data\DayBook" with the drive letter and a colon:
Z:\lsiDayBook-Desktop.htm

Modify the entry labeled "Start In": - The entry should be blank or say: "C:\Data\DayBook" To use a UNC path: - Replace the text with the computer name and the share name (same format as above):
\\MyComputer\MyDayBook

To use a mapped drive: - Replace the text with the drive letter and a colon:
Z:
