    Introduction

    Customers who attempt to lockdown elements of Apple QuickTime (including the menu bar) using the General Lockdown Wizard find that the lockdown is not applied when videos are launched individually from explorer. Launching QuickTime on its own, shows the lockdowns working, but opening a video (that uses QuickTime) shows the lockdowns not working

    Detail

    When locking down an application using the Environment Manager lockdown wizard, it is customary to launch the application and perform the lockdown using the spy tool. The problem is that when videos are launched into QuickTime the title of the Window changes (to match the video that is being played). The result is that the lockdown does not apply.

    Launch QuickTime and create the lockdown using the spy tool as normal, but when the information about the Window is captured and open in Environment Manager (as follows), overwrite the "Parent Text" field with a *.

     




    This will enable the lockdown to work on QuickTime regardless of how the window was opened
