popup windows error message in IE: 'Access is Denied'

Hi,

I got a very strange problem in popup window. I tried to popup window using window.open(...) to open a local html file which is going to open a media player to play a wmv clip. However, the popup window is not opened with error message 'Access is denied'

The code of the local html file is :

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML<

<HEAD><TITLE>CLSA Movie</TITLE><LINK href="clsa.css" rel=stylesheet>

</HEAD>

<BODY>
<object id="MediaPlayer" width=320 height=286 classid="CLSID:22D6f312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95" standby="Loading Windows Media Player components..." type="application/x-oleobject" codebase="http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=6,4,7,1112">

<param name="filename" value="images/clsa_movie.wmv">
<param name="Showcontrols" value="True">
<param name="autoStart" value="True">

<!--http://media.pmcmovies.com/SixtiesLove.wmv-->
<embed type="application/x-mplayer2" src="images/clsa_movie.wmv" name="MediaPlayer" width=320 height=260></embed>

</object>

</BODY>

</HTML>

Suppose this html file in the popped-up window should trigger the window media player to play the wmv file. Unfortunately, the popup window cannot be opened with error message 'Access is Denied'


Any ideas/suggestions are welcome.


Thanks
Benson

It is because you are tyring to talk to a local file. It is a security concern. It is the same thing as talking to two different domains.

Hi Eric,

Thanks for your reply, I appreciate very much in the first place.
The story is that. The page includes two frame. The upper frame is like a header.jsp and the lower frame is the main content. If I put the pop-up link on the upper link, i.e. header.jsp, it doesn't work. If I put it to the lower link, it does work perfectly. I am not quite sure what the problem is. At least, it works partially.

If you want to know more details, I can give you more becasue there is whole bunch of code I need to show.


Thanks
Benson
