DCurl and CSPD

RE: DCurl and CSPD
It is simply a desktop shorcut on my windiows desktop.

The dcurl file is located in a privileged directory.

It is not out on my server where there is a license.

It is the code from a .curl applet which you can run yourself at

The only change to the code is to wrap the VBox in a View as for any simple Dcurl and with a window close handler for that view.

The local directory here has a curl-root.txt

Why would I use HTTP for a DCurl applet on the desktop? My intent is NOT to be in the browser: it is a DCurl desktop app.

But it denies access to CSPD {tested using {output } to Curl console. )

UPDATE: I do see a point - I copied the HTML and the .curl down from the server and ran this test:

1) both are copied into the privileged local directory
2) the HTML <object> is edited to have


3) the HTML is started as a file "Open with" in explorer (not in iexplore browser) and Firefox selected.

RESULT: the CSPD works locally as intended.

Now I will carefully make this .curl into a .dcurl by just wrapping the outer VBox in a View, and then I will UPDATE this note again.



1) The Curl in browser fails locally if CSPD {get ... } is run conditional on, e.g.,

{let can-save:bool = {request-local-data-permission}}

|| ignore the result

2) The Dcurl version CSPD fails if the CSPD commit is called in the View

{on WindowClose do

3) The Dcurl version CSPD SUCCEEDS if commit is done in

{on-applet-suspend do

QUESTION: why might the request for CSPD be returning false on the local machine ? License ?

I will go back and read over {request-local-data-permission}
