Internet explorer Javascript restrictions in WebDialog

I am one of the developers of Skatter.

One of our users is seeing this message at the top of our WebDialog:

To help protect your security your web browser has restricted this file from showing active content

Any idea how to fix this?

Our user already tried this with no luck:

  1. Open Internet Explorer.
  2. From the Tools menu, click Internet Options .
  3. In the Internet Options dialog box, click the Advanced tab.
  4. Check "Allow active content to run in files on My Computer ".
  5. Click OK.

(I’m not posting in the Developers section because it’s not directly related to the development of our extension, but seems to be an issue with Internet Explorer)

We have been investigating this issue and so far have found the following issue:

Our first steps window uses the WPF WebBrowser control and disabling it will make the warnings disappear.

The workaround currently, for Enscape is

Open:
%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Enscape\Enscape.config
 
Set
<ShowFirstStepsWindow>true</ShowFirstStepsWindow>
To
<ShowFirstStepsWindow>false</ShowFirstStepsWindow>

But, I don’t understand why this is even an issue. Any other plugin can be using the WPF WebBrowser control and I don’t really see where the conflict arises. Reach out to me so we can resolve this issue.
