Ok, I did it, and also before I sent it.

But the screenshot with the "Blocked" in it shows the situation after I tried to install it.

This is a shows stopper

Again I have attached what happens AFTER having tested to install.

i mean site on which you watch your webcam add to trusted sites and use slider to lower security to low on trusted sites.
In Internet options>security tab menu.

Internet Explorer Security Zones - Add or Remove Sites

Hello Darkhorse,

You would just need to uncheck the the Require server verification (https: ) for all sites in the zone box to add a non https site.

Internet Explorer Security Zones - Add or Remove Sites



Hope this helps,
