We just found this issue internally here at Integent. If you’re running windows 8 and you start being unable to access things you have accessed in the past. (In our case, it was a vpn connection into a client and an excel/powerpivot report in a client project online) take a look at the steps below for a solution:
- In the Windows 8 environment, type Java.
- You will see About Java as one of your options
- Click on that and you will open the Java Control Panel
- Choose the Security link
- Add the site to Exceptions
