Unable to view unhooked presentations in XP


Viewing unhooked presentations



Unable to view unhooked presentation


Applicable Environment: 

Windows XP

Internet Explorer

Possibly other browsers


Root Cause:

Your download is blocked as a result of added security features within Internet Explorer and Windows XP.



  1. Open Internet Explorer and go to Tools | Internet Options.
  2. Click on the Advanced tab. Under the Security category, there are two added options:
    1. Allow active content from CDs to run on My Computer
    2. All active content to run in files on My Computer.

These are unchecked by default - check these options and you should be able to view unhooked presentations without it being blocked.
