preventing, or detect-in-advance, IE7 protected-mode warning popup
Posted by: humble

I want to embed a PDF in a web page, so I can perform some AcroScript tricks - all works fine, except, I would prefer to avoid doing this if the browser is going to pop up a warning (eg: http://www.wvsom.edu/ComputerServices/Docs/Plugins/protected_mode.png )

Is there a way to tell in advance if IE7 is going to show this dialoge for a given object? (like - to check if protected-mode is off, and/or of the user has selected "do not show this warning" some time in the past?)

Crap!! I only posted this a few days ago, and it's already the 5th top result in google on this topic! Man - sla.ckers.org's got some *cred* !!

I've done a lot of hunting, and cannot find the answer yet.

I'm thinking of writing a script to try a bunch of stuff, run it, not the results, then switch prot-mode off, run it again, and hope that some results are different, so this can then be used to detect it. What a hassle...

stay tuned...

Hmm... that looks like a vista thing. I haven't played enough with Vista to tell you one way or another. I've used it on and off, but I'm still very much in XP land at the moment.
