I've been having this problem with IMS packages - specifically launching files from within them. I have made this little example to show what I mean. I have a single html file with flash content. The flash is just a single button that open a powerpoint file in a new window.
It should just launch a new browser window and prompt me to open/save/cancel as usual.
If I open the html file using my web browser and click the button (Internet Explorer 7) it works fine but once I have imported as an IMS package, it opens the new window for a split second and closes it immediately.
Interestingly, I do hear the little bleep that is usually accopanied by the open/save/cancel dialog but it doesn't appear.
Also, if I hold the control key down for the duration of the 'click' and 'release' of the button, it functions correctly?? I don't want people to have to use this ropey hack.
Please give it a go and help as I'm at my wits end.
Thank you all!
