Permit error when opening document in database

Whenever one of our users opens a document in one of our databases, he gets this error:

Sicherheit salarm 

Notes versucht, folgende Aktion 
auszufuhren, die Ihrem Sicherheitsprofil 

Aktion: advapi32

Signiert von: <Development ID 
of our developer>

Nicht erlaubt: Zugriff auf externen Code

which translates to -->

Security alarm

Notes tries to out-drive the following
 action which your safety profile 

Action: advapi32

Marked of:  <Development ID 
of our developer>

Does not permit: Access to 
external code

What could possibly be causing this? Thanks!
This message is caused by the users' security profile not being set to allow the ID attempting to execute external code to do so. The user can click the button to trust the signer; then, in the future, this message will not appear.

I recommend all code be signed by a controlled agent ID that is used to sign all production agents and libraries. For example, an ID of "MyDomainProcessing" could be used. Then using policies, the ID can be authorized to execute code on all the client machines (check an administration guide on how to do policies).

Additionally, when agents are signed with this ID, you don't have to worry about developers who are no longer with the company who can grant that ID a higher level of access since it is a controlled ID.
