Using Developer Studio 7.6.2 with Vista and Office 2007 is quite a challenge. I have not seen any specific suggestions for settings. My system is stand-alone behind a firewall. My WebFOCUS Server 'Security Mode' is OFF. My 'Enable Protected Mode' is unchecked. I saw IBI's settings for Security Mode ON (does mean OPSYS?). They said:
While running the WebFOCUS Reporting Server or DataMigrator Server with security ON, the following setting needs to be applied to Internet Explorer of the client PCs:
From the Tools option, select Internet Options. When the Internet options dialog opens select the Security tab and select Trusted Sites.
Ensure the option to Enable Protected Mode is unchecked and then click the Sites... button.
In the new dialog uncheck the option Require server verification (https
for all sites in this zone, enter the machine host name and HTTP port that is used by the Reporting Server (http://machine_name
ort_number/) and press the Add button.
I get multiple prompts and chastisements from Vista security when I run a focexec with PCHOLD FORMAT EXL2K. Eventually the report is output, but it is a slow and less than automatic process. Should I switch to Security Mode OPSYS? I am not so worried about my system's security, I just want to get reports that do not take so much user intervention. Has IBI refined it's suggestions for security settings for Vista/Dev Studio 7.6.x/Office 2007?
Once I get a smooth running system I will report back.
