I am trying to get Internet Explorer to treat a file or files in a certain directory on the local hdd as being in the Intranet Zone. I can make this work by deploying the files to an IIS server and adding that server to the intranet zone in the IE security settings, and I can also make it work by setting up a unc share to point at a local disk and adding this to the intranet zone. I can't seem to get this to work with a local file path though.
This is an example of the path that I would like to be able to add:
I have also tried wildcard paths - e.g.
and both attempts display an error message saying:
> You have entered an invalid wildcard > sequence. Examples of valid patterns: > *://*.microsoft.com > http://*.microsoft.co.jp > ftp://188.8.131.52/ > file:\\localsvr\share > *://157.54.100-200.* Examples of > invalid patterns: > http://microsoft.*.com ftp://*
Is this possible with Internet Explorer or is it prohibited for some reason? I'm using IE8.
