Do I need to install any extra CGI script in my web server in order to show the locked page?

No. It can work on all kinds of hosting servers, no CGI, PHP, ASP, Database or special web server software is required. It can even work without any web server, thus you can publish your encrypted web pages on CD, DVD or any other media.

What browser is HTML Password Lock compatible with?

It can work with any JavaScript-capable browser, such as Internet Explorer 4.0 and above,  Netscape 4.0 and above, Opera 6.0 and above, and any current version of Mozilla Firefox. No additional software or plugin is required.

Does HTML Password Lock support UNICODE and multi-byte systems?

Yes, the Version 3.6 and above support UTF-8, Unicode, Uncode big endian encoded web pages and Asian and European charsets. To support your own charset, please check "Specify HTML Charset" option in step 3, select the "default" option or an appropriate charset from the list that will work with your web page.

Does the software run on a Mac OS?

No. The protected page works on a Mac-based web browser, but the HTML Password Lock software itself can only run on a Windows system.

Why do I get an Internet Explorer security message when viewing the protected files directly from the hard disk?

Problem under Windows XP SP2:

Because of Microsoft's updates to their Internet Explorer browser—included in the Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (XP SP2) update—viewing a web page locally that needs to run active content or scripting causes the following security message to appear in Internet Explorer's yellow Information Bar:

To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this file from showing active content that could access your computer. Click here for options ...

Since HTML Password Lock is based on JavaScript technology, it will display this message also when you are viewing the protected file directly from the hard disk.

This message will only display when you view the protected files directly from the local hard disk, such as c:\myfiles\myfile.htm. There will be no such problem once you've uploaded the protected file to a web server.

How to solve this problem?

There are two ways to solve this problem:

1. When the yellow Information Bar appears (shown above), click on it and select "Allow blocked content ...". The unlocking processing will work fine.

2. In the program, Step 3, click on "Advanced Options", check the "Add Mark of the Web comment in the HTML code" option, then protect the file. This option will add a Mark of the Web comment in the html code:

<!-- saved from url=(0014)about:internet -->

If you intend to publish the protected page on a CD-ROM other than a web server, you can use this option. Otherwise, you can just click "Allow blocked content" on the IE security message, since there will not be such problem after you upload the file to a web server.

This mark will force the HTML file into the Internet Zone other than the Local Machine Zone, so that the JavaScript in the HTML file will run properly on the local hard disk. 

How to support Asian and European languages?

If you are protecting an Asian or European language based web page, please check the "Specify HTML Charset" option in step 3, select the "default" option or appropriate charset from the list for your web page, then everything will work fine.
