      • In the Downloads section, set the Automatic prompting for file downloads parameter to Enable (only for Microsoft Internet Explorer 8).
      • Click OK.
  • Enable pop-up windows:
    • Go to the Privacy tab.
    • In the Pop-up Blocker section, uncheck Block Pop-ups.
    In the Pop-up Blocker section, clear the Block Pop-ups check box. If the interface mode is Forms in tabs or Taxi and modal windows are not used, selecting this option is not required.

    Every time an auxiliary window is opened, the keyboard layout is selected based on the operating system settings. If the layout does not match the data entry language, you will need to specify the input language in the settings to avoid switching between languages.

    In Internet Explorer 8, navigating to an open window may display a dialog reading "Click OK to navigate to the window". This dialog also contains the OK button. When you click on this button, you will navigate to the window.

    Features of Using Advanced Files Operations Tools

    All the operations on the file system (downloading a file from the server, uploading a file to the server, deleting a file, etc.) are only executed online. If user interaction (for example, file selection) is not required, a user will be prompted to confirm the action.

    Internet Explorer implementation requires that a specific ActiveX control be installed - 1C:Enterprise 8.2. Extension for operations with files for Internet Explorer (x86) or its 64-bit version for 64-bit Internet Explorer. The component is included in the platform but its installation should be provided for in the configuration (call of the EnableAdvancedFilesOperations method should be implemented).

    To use the component, the browser must have the rights to install and use the signed ActiveX controls for the website zone.

    The Microsoft Core XML Services (MSXML) library is used for operations with files. We recommend using versions MSXML 6.0 and MSXML 4.0. With MSXML 3.0, you may experience issues when transferring large files from the client to the server.
