If you received this message, there are several possible solutions that may help you solve this on your own. 

Solution 1 - Delete the Click-Once cache folder

  1. Locate this folder on your PC: C:\users\[username]\AppData\Local\Apps\2.0\
  2. Delete all content in the 2.0 folder
  3. Check to see if the problem is solved. If not, continue on to the next solution.

If you are having trouble locating the AppData folder, it might be becuase the folder is hidden.

  1. Open any folder
  2. Type %appdata% in the location field and hit Enter
  3. Select the AppData folder from the location field
  4. You will then be able to select the Local folder followed by the Apps folder

  2. Hit F10 on the keyboard
  3. Select Tools > Internet Options
  4. Select the Security tab

  6. Add *.Panaya.com to the websites list

Solution 3 - Security settings are blocking Panaya

It might be that a proxy is used within your network, preventing Panaya's player and recorder from working properly. 

If you have an anti-virus, VPN, Remote Machine or Virtual Machine, you might need to contact your IT administrator and request to add Panaya to the safe domains list. Sites on this list do not require proxy or any other security permission.
Please add *.Panaya.com to your white-list, or to your exceptions lists (e.g. proxy, anti-virus etc.)

Alternatively, add the following URL's to your white-list:
my.panaya.com or emea.panaya.com

Solution 4 - Use a different browser

  1. Please try to use another browser such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox
  2. Once installed, follow the instructions as described here
