Can’t use database within Workgroup with Windows XP clients

I am in charge of 10 computers and a server, I have them all on a workgroup and i can only use the database application installed on the server on the older computers. I try to use the same program on win xp but it says that the program is outside of the local intranet or on a untrusted source so access will not open the file. I don't want to change anything unneccessarily but i'm desperate!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Try adding the address to the local intranet:

In Internet Explorer, click Tools, and then click Internet Options.
On the Security tab, click Local intranet, and then click Sites.
Click Advanced, and then type: *.domain.com or an IP address range (for example, 157.54.100-200.*) in the Add this Web site to the zone box, where domain.com is your company and top-level domain names.
Click Add, click OK, click OK, and then click OK again to close the Internet Options dialog box.
Restart the computer.

This is a suggested workaround in the following Microsoft support article:

    Which program are you talking about? Is it perhaps a program that includes a browser in it? Are you able to access these intranet pages from IE/Firefox?
