Default Links getting Action Cancelled IE message


I've successfully published courses with attachments and in-text links on PPT slides to pdfs on an internal site. Now I'm publishing using all same settings and receiving an Action Cancelled message in IE6. However, if I hit the refresh icon the pdf appears. The pdf links are also in the Attachments menu and have the same result.

I published to an FTP site and users on other computers experience the same result.

I've been through the forums and I see some similar posts but not exact to my situation. Any ideas? This is the last thing holding up my course from posting on our LMS.

Are you linking to a PDF that's online like:

www.mywebsite.com/mypdf.pdf

If so, download the PDF and add it as a file attachment and that should resolve your issue.

Thanks for the reply.
Attachment as file rather than link does work. However, my preference is link for ease of update. I also have the same pdfs as in-text links in the ppt.

If I do go with the file attachment is there a workaround that would allow me to point the in-text ppt links to the file attachment? Would rather not redesign course at this point to have the learner go to attachments for all references.

You could create a web page online that contains links to the attachments and then link to the web page rather than the files directly.
