FileUpEE Version Differences
Differences Between V5.3.1 and V5.3.2
Features added
  • In Windows Vista and above clients with Internet Explorer 7 and above, implemented the ability to save files to any accessible directory while Internet Explorer is running in protected mode.
Issues Resolved
  • When uploaded file had a long filename (over 80 characters), setting FileUpEE’s "CodePage" property to Unicode (65001) caused corruption in the saved file’s name.
Issues Resolved in XFileEE version 2.5.2
  • Sending a regular GET request that doesn’t involve file download caused Internet Explorer to crash.
  • During downloads, turning on debug logging in the XFRequest object caused the “Unknown Error Occurred” error. In version 2.5.1, the same bug caused Internet Explorer to crash.
