Security Warning: A potential security concern has been identified

View the attached document for detailed instructions. 

When Advantage opens, some users may get the following message: "A potential security concern has been identified".  Clicking open allows the program to open as normal. This may occur on a computer where

  • someone installed the program, but someone else is logged in and trying to use it
  •  the MS Access runtime file has recently been updated
  •  the program file is not located in a trusted location.  

Adding ProTracker Advantage to a "trusted location" on the computer will resolve this problem. 




Attached are 5 registry files. Please determine what version of MSAccess you are using to open ProTracker Advantage, then choose the appropriate file to run. Right-click on ProTracker shortcut, properties> shortcut > Target. Look for the Microsoft Office folder in the path for MSAccess.exe.

Note: It may be necessary to scroll far to the left to see this information.



To run the registry file: 

1. Download/Save to your computer.

2. Right-click, Extract All or Unzip.

3. Double-click to run the reg file. 

4. Say YES to " Adding information can unintentionally change . .    Do you want to continue?
