I ran into the following error message while downloading a content search within Security & Compliance in Office 365.
“Deployment and application do not have matching security zones”
This is a generic error for all Microsoft Windows Applications (CSharp). So if you’re here due to another download or installation this could also fix it for you.
Deployment and application do not have matching security zones FIX
There was quite an easy fix for me:
I downloaded the rapport in Google Chrome.
It downloaded to my downloads folder and from there I tried to open it. Because you already downloaded it, it will try use your default web browser. Google Chrome is my default browser but it cannot cope with it. It will show you an error because it’s not using Internet Explorers security settings. Firefox actually gives the same error.
You should try downloading the export in Internet Explorer. This will download the application directly in your browser and your export should be succesful.
This could be the quick fix for you, but if not I suggest you’d go to codeketchup.blogspot.nl for more about this error.
Why would this not work from other browsers?
Like I already stated in the solution, Google Chrome, Firefox or any other browser does not use the IE security settings.
The application will try to check if your security zones match with his, and if there are no security settings it will throw in the error.
Many problems you encounter in while browsing can be solved by trying a different browser first. Every browser has it’s flaws and this is one of them for Chrome or Firefox.
Leave a comment if the issue keeps persisting. I will try to help you and see what I can do for you.
