I devised a set of instructions for a namespace extension application that includes a costume protocol. The structure of this protocol is represented as “
protocol:\path\to\file“. My aim is to prevent a Windows warning from popping up every time I use the protocol by adding its paths to the list of Trusted Sites in Internet Options.
However, Windows doesn’t allow me to add “
protocol:*\” as a trusted site. Do you have any suggestions?
Please let me know if you require further information.
As a developer, you may encounter situations where you need to create a costume protocol for a namespace extension application. A costume protocol is a structured way of specifying a protocol for a specific path to a file. However, adding the paths in this protocol to Internet Option’s Trusted Sites can be challenging. In this blog post, we will discuss how to create a costume protocol and add its paths to Internet Option’s Trusted Sites.
Creating a Costume Protocol
To create a costume protocol, you need to follow these steps:
Step 1: Register the Protocol
The first step is to register the protocol with the operating system. You can do this by creating a registry entry for the protocol. The registry entry should contain the protocol name, the path to the executable that handles the protocol, and any additional parameters that are needed.
Step 2: Create a Namespace Extension
The next step is to create a namespace extension that handles the protocol. The namespace extension should be registered with the operating system and should be associated with the protocol that you created in step 1.
Step 3: Implement the Namespace Extension
The final step is to implement the namespace extension. This involves writing code that handles requests for files that match the protocol and providing a user interface for navigating the files.
Adding Paths to Internet Option’s Trusted Sites
To add the paths in the costume protocol to Internet Option’s Trusted Sites, you need to follow these steps:
Step 1: Open Internet Options
The first step is to open Internet Options. You can do this by opening the Control Panel and selecting Internet Options from the list of options.
Step 2: Select the Security Tab
The next step is to select the Security tab in the Internet Options window. This tab contains options for managing the security settings for Internet Explorer.
Step 3: Select Trusted Sites
The third step is to select Trusted Sites from the list of zones in the Security tab. This zone contains a list of websites that are trusted by Internet Explorer.
Step 4: Click on Sites
The fourth step is to click on the Sites button. This will open the Trusted Sites window, which contains a list of websites that are trusted by Internet Explorer.
Step 5: Add the Protocol Path
The final step is to add the path for the protocol to the list of trusted sites. However, Windows does not allow you to add “protocol:*” as a trusted site. To work around this issue, you can add the individual paths in the protocol to the list of trusted sites.
Creating a costume protocol for a namespace extension application can be a useful way to structure a protocol for a specific path to a file. However, adding the paths in this protocol to Internet Option’s Trusted Sites can be challenging. By following the steps outlined in this blog post, you can create a costume protocol and add its paths to Internet Option’s Trusted Sites.
