JSI Tip 6266. 'VBScript: File Transfer Manager - There was an error launching the File Transfer Manager'?

The File Transfer Manager (FTM) permits members of Microsoft beta programs, MSDN, Microsoft Volume Licensing Services, and some other Microsoft programs to transfer files with associated Microsoft Web sites.

When you install or use FTM, you receive:

VBScript: File Transfer Manager
There was an error launching the File Transfer Manager
Please try again later or contact your help provider.

If your firewall or computer blocks ActiveX controls or blocks scripting, you will receive this error.

To workaround this issue:

1. Use the Internet Explorer Tools menu and press Internet Options.

2. Select the Security tab.

3. Select the Trusted Sites zone.

4. Add the Microsoft site.

5. Configure the Trusted Sites zone Security Level to allow these actions.

6. Configure any firewall or security product to allow these actions.

NOTE: Your network administrator may have to enable ActiveX controls and scripting for your Internet connection.
