If you encounter problems in accessing the course content on CD-ROM or DVD-ROM please note:
- Newer computer operating systems, such as VISTA, have excessive amounts of security built in and will block external content delivered from discs if the user does not allow for the content by answering properly when first using the disc. The newer Flash players have excessive security and block external levels of disc content if challenges are not answered.
- Flash players have excessive security and block external levels of disc content if challenges are not answered properly.
- Many of the newer browsers have excessive security, prevent multimedia content from discs, and have default pop-up blockers installed.
- The Google Toolbar sometimes installs itself unknowingly on user's computers and has pop-up blockers that must be disabled. Click on the Blocked tab to turn off.
After inserting the disc:
If the question from Internet Explorer comes up asking to allow content, answer yes.
To allow Active Content:
Click on Tools » Internet Options » Advanced » Scroll down to Security » Check – Allow active content from CDs
To turn off Internet Explorer popup blocker, open Internet Explorer and click: Tools » Pop-up Blocker » Turn off Pop-Blocker
If Flash player comes up with an alert about security, you must allow external content. If you answer the question wrong and later need to allow content:
You'll need to make changes to the Flash player's security settings to allow certain content contained on the CD-ROM and DVD-ROM discs. You'll have to be connected to the Internet to accomplish this task.
Load the disc and click start. After the main menu comes up, right click the mouse on one of the main menu's buttons. A small window will pop up and the last entry in the pop up will state "About Adobe Flash Player 9." Click this entry. This will take you to the flash software support website page. On the right-hand side of this page, click on Settings Manager under Support. When the Settings Manager comes up, click on Global Security Settings Panel.
In the panel, make sure that Always Allow is selected. Then, click the Edit locations drop-down arrow. Click Add location. In the Trust location entry box, type in D:\ (or your CD drive location letter) and click Confirm.
