Problems with Blocked Content

Software AG documentation uses active content (JavaScript and Java applets). With Service Pack 2 (SP2) for Windows XP, Microsoft introduced a range of powerful new security features. One effect of these security features is that warning messages appear whenever you try to display HTML pages that use active content, for example Software AG documentation, in the Internet Explorer. A typical warning message that appears in the Internet Explorer information bar is:

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...

To continue using the documentation, you can do one of the following:

In the Microsoft Internet Explorer:

  1. Choose Tools> Internet Options.

  2. Choose the tab Advanced.

  3. Scroll down to the section Security.

  4. Check (tick) the box Allow active content to run in files on My Computer.

  5. Choose OK.

  6. Restart the Internet Explorer.

The warning messages should now no longer appear.
