5.3.1 Specify Trusted Locations Dialog Box

A trusted location is a directory that's designated as a secure source for opening files. By default, InfoConnect allows you to open documents only in directories specified as trusted locations in the InfoConnect settings.

During installation, InfoConnect specifies four default trusted locations on your local hard drive. The paths for three of these trusted locations cannot be modified or deleted. However, you can remove the default user desktop trusted location (...users\<user>\Desktop). You can also add your own trusted locations to the list.

NOTE:Upgrades from previous versions of InfoConnect do not specify the default user desktop trusted location (...users\<user>\Desktop).
