Flash privacy setting preventing me inserting a cart object

Flash privacy setting preventing me inserting a cart object

On a Mac running Lion / DW CS5, when I try to "Add" the cart using the graphic or click on the "Add an eCart object" text, I get an error message stating:

- - - - -
Adobe Flash Player has stopped a potentially unsafe operation. The following local application on your computer or network:

/Volumes/Macintosh HD/Users/Iain/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Dreamweaver CS5/en_US/Configuration/Shared/WebAssist/eCart/Help/wf_master.swf

is trying to communicate with this Internet-enabled location:

/Volumes/Macintosh HD/Users/Iain/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Dreamweaver CS5/en_US/Configuration/Shared/WebAssist/eCart/Help/wf_master.htm

To let this application communicate with the Internet, click Settings. You must restart this application after changing your settings.

The above is essentially the same problem from another post I found - a reply mentioned this link:

Flash Global Security Settings Panel

However, this is not what I'm seeing in Lion - it seems to only want web domains to accept, rather than local paths.

I've attached a screenshot of the setting page - if someone could advise if I'm in the right place and also the correct path that might need to be entered anywhere, that would be much appreciated.

the screen shot you have posted is of the system settings flash settings panel, not of the flash settings webpage.

If you visit this address in your web browser it will open a web page looking the screen shot i have attached where you can select the local path of the eCart help files.

Thanks Jason - I took that as a screenshot on that page, rather than a live settings panel itself.
