Hello

I have an asyncupload control in user home page to upload multiple .docx files. The page is working fine in chrome browser and now for testing purpose when I checked the same page in IE9, the user is unable to select multiple files. On searching I read about upload modules and installed flash plugin and still the issue is there in IE9. What can be the reason behind?

Note I am not using Manual upload and havent set any DisablePlugins.

Thanks for replying,
Freddy.

Hi Freddy,

I guess the SilverLight plugin is not installed in your machine. RadAsyncUpload utilizes four different modules for file uploading – File Api, Silverlight, Flash and IFrame with File Api having the highest preference. Out of these four upload modules only first three support multiple file selection.

In the case of IE browser File Api is not supported in versions prior to IE10. And in IE9 RadAsyncUpload implements only Silverlight and IFrame modules. The Flash modules got some incompatibilities in IE9 and using Silverlight upload module is the only option for the control to enable users to select multiple files. Hence if Silverlight plugin is missing in your machine, you wont be able to select multiple files. Your page works fine in Chrome because by default Chrome supports the File Api and Flash.

Thanks,
Shinu.
