Update Hyperlinks to new location of detached attachments

Postby Culin » Tue Jun 30, 2009 6:27 am

Hello,

I'm trying out the evaluation of DetachPipe v. 5.7.9e on Windows XP SP3, MS Outlook 2007 w/ SP2. I have a few questions regarding about the location of detached attachments.

1. How can I use a textpipe filter to update the Hyperlinks in all email detached to the new location? Do I need to have a textpipe (a seperate product from DetachPipe I guess) to create this filter?

2. If I save detached attachment to local HDD and click on the hyperlink to open it, OL 2007 gave a security warning:
"Microsoft Office has identified a potential security concern. This location may be unsafe...."
with the path to the detached attachment.
Click Yes to open the attachment, click No to cancel.
I noticed that if I changed the saving location to a share folder on the server, the security warning above did not appear.

How can I turn this OFF in case laptop users save detached attachments to local HDD instead on the server? (since this warning may confuse them)

Thanks in advance for your help.
Vinh

Hi Vinh,

v5.8 is the latest - please upgrade.

1. TextPipe Lite is a separate product, you specify a simple search and replace from one location to another.
2. This is a Microsoft Outlook error message - not DetachPipe. Under Outlook's Tools Menu, Options, Security tab, Zone Settings button, you need to add the local drive to Trusted Sites. It's very unusual for this not be trusted by default.

Thanks very much Simon for your quick response. I'd like to clarify at some points:
1. Does DetachPipe come with a built-in filter to update the Hyperlinks wittout requiring TextPipe Lite? How can I get it?
I think it makes sense that it comes with this tool without requiring another product to achieve the Hyperlinks Update.

2. I use OL 2007 so I went to the similar option (Tool-->Trust Center). I went through and tried most of the options there but still no luck to turn that message OFF. Does it relate to IE Security zone? I googled how to add local drive to Trusted Sites but could not find one closed. Could you share it here?

Thanks,
Vinh

1. We agree - we will add this soon.
2. Try this:

It is mostly related to the hyperlink warnings in Outlook 2007. Follow the steps below to resolve the issue.

#1 Disable hyperlink warnings for 2007 Office programs
============
To disable the hyperlink warnings in 2007 Office programs when an http:// address or an ftp:// address is used, you must create a new
registry subkey. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open dialog box, type regedit, and then click OK.
3. In Registry Editor, locate one of the following registry subkeys:
o HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Common
o HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Co mmon
Note You only have to modify one of these registry subkeys. You do not have to modify both of them.
4. Click the registry subkey, point to New on the Edit menu, and then click Key.
5. Type Security, and then press ENTER to name the key.
6. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
7. Type DisableHyperlinkWarning, and then press ENTER to name the entry.
8. In the right pane, right-click DisableHyperlinkWarning, and then click Modify.
9. In the Edit DWORD Value dialog box, click Decimal, and then type 1 under Value data.

Note A value of 0 enables the hyperlink warning message. A value of 1 disables the hyperlink warning message.
10. Click OK.
11. Exit Registry Editor.

If you still receive a warning message

You may still receive a warning message from Microsoft Windows. If you continue to receive a warning message after you follow the
steps above, use one of the following methods to resolve the issue.

#2 Turn off the "Confirm open after download" option for the file type that you are trying to open
================
1. Double-click My Computer.
2. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options.
3. On the File Types tab, select the appropriate file name extension (for example, WMV) in the Registered File Types box, and then
click Advanced.
4. Click to clear the Confirm open after download check box, and then click OK.
5. In the Folder Options dialog box, click Close.

#3 Modify the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\WMVFile\EditFlags registry subkey
==================
Use this method if the warning message affects multiple computers.

To disable the warning message, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
2. Locate the following registry subkey:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\WMVFile\EditFlags
3. Click EditFlags, and then click Rename on the Edit menu.
4. Type OldEditFlags, and then press ENTER.
5. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD value.
6. Type EditFlags, and then press ENTER.
7. On the Edit menu, click Modify.
8. In the Edit DWORD Value dialog box, click Hexadecimal under Base.
9. Type 10000, and then click OK.
