Why does it work on Mac OS X and not Windows 7?
You've already answered that. Apple doesn't use IE as it's rendering engine, IE is only for windows, and it's an IE issue.
I found the following link that may help:
It suggests to:
Internet Explorer for Windows:
You might have disabled Active Scripting in Internet Explorer to prevent most pop-up windows. This features offers the disabling of all sites or only to restricted sites.
To re-enable for all sites:
1. From the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
2. From the Security tab click Internet, and then click Custom Level.
3. Under Active Scripting in the Scripting section, click Enable.
4. Click OK in the Security Settings window and Ok again in the Internet Options Windows
Not sure if that helps, try restarting after adjusting your settings to make sure they're not cached at the OS level.
Thanks for the reply Mike, I've tried enabling all the option in the Scripting section of Internet Options to allow scripting and I still get the prompt. Also tried restarting IE and Windows and the prompt still appears.
Is there a force IE to allow scripting in case FileMaker is ignoring the Internet Option settings?
I'm not sure, this stackoverflow article may help you figure that out:
For rendering problem, see
and try with the value 11000.
I also saw the security popup in web viewer (only some machines), it is different thing from above emulation mode setting.
If you are using data: URL in webviewer, try this
"data:text/html,<!-- saved from url=(0014)about:internet -->" & Char(13) & Char(10) &
