Security Dialog Boxes

Before the program appears, a security dialog box will be displayed, asking you to give the software permission to act like a program installed on your computer.  The security permission is needed for many functions of the program.  If you choose to grant the security permission for one time you will see the dialog again the next time you load the software; it is easier to grant the trust on an ongoing basis.

These security dialogs are depicted here:

For Sun Java
For Apple Java
For Microsoft Java

Some security dialogs offer hyperlinks to view information about the digital certificate or the company producing the software.  In some cases clicking the hyperlink results in the security dialog being hidden by other program windows and you need to find the security dialog to continue.
