Subject: Re: SAS Java Applet not working...
I have the applet working locally; just map a drive to the network share
that has the sasdoc files, then in my browser I enter
W:\SASDOC7\sashtml\applet.htm (no file:///...)
YMMV, this works for me (NT4 Server, NT4WS * W98 clients, IE5). I did put
the server in my trusted sites zone, but I think that just means I don't
have to OK each loading of the applet.
