Since updating Java to Version 7 Update 55 on a Windows 7 64-bit system, trying to create an Invoice we are getting the following error: Application Blocked by Security Settings Your security settings have blocked an untrusted application from running.  Once we click the OK button on that message, the Invoice opens and is able to be completed and sent.

The following Java website explains this to be the developer's issue:

https://www.java.com/en/download/help/java_blocked.xml

The application that you are running is blocked because the application does not comply with security guidelines implemented in Java 7 Update 51.

Contact the developer or publisher of this application and let them know about the application being blocked.

Hey Mike,

Thank you for posting in the Support Center! We have found that lowering the Internet Explorer and Java settings typically rids of this error message. Below are the steps on adjusting the security settings.

Changing Internet Explorer Security Settings

1. Click on Tools in the upper left of your account
2. Click on 'Internet Options'
3. Select the 'Security' tab
4. Lower the Security Level to Low.
5. Select 'Apply' and then 'OK'

Changing Java Security Settings

1. Open your Control Panel
2. Select Java
3. Select the 'Security' Tab
4. Lower the setting to 'Low"
5. Select 'Apply' and then 'OK'

Please let me know if you need any additional clarification on these steps or if you are still having issues.

Thanks and have a great day!

It fixes it, but why does the application have an expired security certificate in the first place?

Isaac,

Great question.  In my not-so-technical understanding, our certificate was to expire on Monday evening.  Our team updated the certificate, prompting new security prompts.

Again - this is my simple understanding.  I will loop in someone who has a deeper understanding, please look for this response.

Best,

Jordan
