Enabling the Java Applet for Classic M-Files Web

If you need to frequently edit documents in the classic M-Files Web with Internet Explorer 11 and the integration with Office for the web is not an option for you, enable the M-Files Web Java applet in your vaults. The Java applet is disabled by default unless you are upgrading from a previous M-Files installation.

Enabling the applet

Follow these steps to enable the Java applet for the classic M-Files Web in a vault of your choice:

  1. Open your web browser.
  2. Open the address http(s)://<Your M-Files Web domain>/configuration.aspx.
  3. Log in with system administrator credentials.
  4. Under Vault-specific settings, select any of the available vaults.
  5. Set the Java applet option to Enable.
  6. Optional: Repeat the steps from 4 to 5 if you want to enable the Java applet for other vaults as well.
The Java applet is now enabled for the vault of your choice.
