Installing Image Uploader on Client Side
When a user visits the page that contains Image Uploader, it is automatically downloaded and installed. This process is discussed below.
Internet Explorer on Windows
Depending on Internet Explorer settings, the Information Bar may be displayed.
A user should click on the Information Bar and select Install This Add-on or Run Add-on from the dropdown menu.
Then a user should click Install in the add-on installation dialog.
By default, Internet Explorer settings allow automatic installation of add-ons (with security dialog). However, sometimes automatic installation is disabled. Typically it happens in corporate networks if the security policy of the company does not allow it.
To give users with such security settings a possibility to use Image Uploader, you can provide them with a standalone installer (ImageUploaderRedistributable.msi). It can be downloaded from the following location:
Other Browsers and Operating Systems
If a user opens a page with Image Uploader in one of the other supported browsers, they should make sure that Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.5 or later is installed. If so, Image Uploader will be automatically downloaded and installed. Depending on the browser settings, security dialog prompting whether a user permits installation of Image Uploader may be displayed.
Users should click the Yes button (or OK depending on the client platform) to proceed with installation.
If Java applet caching is enabled on the client side and you use caching in the code (as done in all demo applications), once Image Uploader is loaded on this page, it is cached and will not be downloaded again. If you need to update it (e.g. when deploying new version), find instructions in the Upgrading Minor Versions topic.
Additionally, Image Uploader wrappers allow displaying special instructions helping users to download and install the add-on. This feature is called installation progress and looks like the following screenshot:
