RevWeb, IE and saving data

Found the solution... and it's an easy fix for the user. The user needs 
to bring up the Security tab in the IE options menu, click on "Local 
Intranet", then just add our web site using the "Sites" button. Don't 
know why this works, but it does. No problem writing to disk after doing 
this.

Fortunately, it's easy for the revlet to detect this problem as soon as 
it starts up, simply by attempting to write and retrieve a file to the 
users computer. The solution can then be explained.

Richard... I agree with you about the horrendous warning that a revlet 
brings up. The only solution we know is to explain the warning to the 
user in advance. That should draw most of them in to proceeding. Of 
course, in our case, the user has some familiarity with our company. If 
they didn't, that warning message might still scare many away, even 
after explaining to them it's safe to proceed.
