Re-enabling the WebView in Xp sp1 and 2k sp3
Thanks elastic for sharing the info.
The following three registry values are available to allow Web view functionality in Windows Server 2003, Windows XP SP1, and Windows 2000 SP3:
Create these registry values in the following registry key:
Permits Windows to display the Web view templates or customizations (Folder.htt) that have an MD5 hash registered with Windows. By default, only Windows 2000 Web view templates and some other few have an MD5 hash registered with Windows. Web view templates or customizations that do not have a hash registered are not displayed.
Permits Windows to display the Web view templates and customizations (Folder.htt) that do not have an MD5 hash registered with Windows. In this case, you receive a security message for Web view templates or customizations that do not have a hash registered. If you click Yes to the security message, the hash for the template or customization registers. When Windows displays the Web view templates later, you do not receive the security message.
Permits Windows to display the Web view templates and customizations (Folder.htt) that do not have an MD5 hash registered with Windows. In this case, you receive a security message only for Web view templates or customizations that contain potentially unsafe scripting. This is the same behavior that occurs in Windows XP before SP1 and Windows 2000 before SP3. For this policy to work you must also set the AllowLegacyWebView value to 1.
I've heard lotsa ppl asking for that one.
THX, ur webview is gonna work on my XP SP1 ...
question: can custom htt be loaded as desktop bg?
like i'm having this html with a JS clock (analog) .. and i want more of stuff inside displayed on desktop ... drives .. etc ... info ... (JS or VBA proggramin') ..
can that be done?
second ... some folders ur installer just won't do them ...
like the desktop.ini, folder settings are ok inside but the webview is not working (same behaviour on new created folders and old folders prev. created)
keep it simple and powerfull
1)Try it ! If not you can always use the W.S.H. scripting objects (like FileScriptingObject) to do the same.
2) That's becaus windows caches the folder info. One way I found to work was to change the
"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\BagMRU Size" key to 1, and click reset all folders in folder options.
My comp doesnt seem to have an "/Exploerer" entry..."/Policies" contains only "NonEnum", "Ratings" and "system" but no "Explorer"
Can I just add the keys myself and it will work?
It should. In any case it won't hurt.
