SUMMARY


Messageware AttachView does not require users to install any components when viewing attachments.

 

Users are prompted to install an ActiveX component when saving files. They will only be prompted the first time they attempt to save an attachment using the AttachView save control. If the user selects not to install the ActiveX component, the Java Runtime Environment is activated to handle the save function by default.

 

Users may not have permissions to install the AttachView ActiveX component and the Administrator may choose to programmatically push out the control.

 

WORKAROUND

 

Below are the steps to manually install the Messageware AttachView Add-in for saving files. This process can be used to programmatically distribute the ActiveX component using SMS or other environment specific solutions.

 

To proceed with the process below, the Dax.cab file containing the ActiveX files will be used.   Please note on 64-bit workstations the Dax_64.cab has to be used.

 

In an environment running AttachView for Exchange 2003/2000 the Dax.cab file is located under \Program Files\Exchsrvr\exchweb\controls

 

In an environment running AttachView for Exchange 2007 the Dax.cab file is located under \Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\ClientAccess\Owa\MWScripts\AttachView\1.5

 

In an environment running AttachView for Exchange 2010 the Dax.cab file is located under \Program Files\Microsoft\v14\Exchange Server\ClientAccess\Owa\MWScripts\AttachView\2.0



1.        Extract the contents of the Dax.cab file to a temp folder

2.        Copy the 4 files (Dax.inf, Dax.ocx, lang.ini, unicows.dll) to the \Program Files\MWARE\AttachView directory (Create the path if it does not exist)
