I've got a program that I occasionally help people with. In XP Pro, it runs on IE 6.0.2900. In that version of IE you can click on Tools -> Internet Options -> Advanced and scroll down until you see "Allow Active Content to Run in Files on my Computer".
What I need to know is if there is anywhere on @K Pro that has the same function. I haven't found it. IE 6 is a different version with 2K Pro. It runs 6.0.2800. There's no option for allowing active content to run on the page.
Does anyone know where/how this compares between them? I'd really appreciate any help!

Service Pack 2 pushes the Internet Explorer version up to 6.00.2900 and is only available with Windows XP. All it really adds to Internet Explorer is the popup blocker and a few new security options including the options you've mentioned. Apart from that the differences are practically non-existant.

IE6 for Win2K will run local content on the hard drive without needing to prompt you with a yellow bar - it works in the same way XP did before Service Pack 2 came out. Therefore you won't find the Active Content content on Win2k.
