Removing Cached Files at the Client

In previous versions, when a user accessed a viewer or printer applet for the first time, he or she might have been prompted about caching the Java files. This prompt appeared only if this option was enabled on the server. If the Java files were cached, they were installed as objects on the client. If the user chose not to cache the files, they may have been cached anyway, depending on how the user's browser was configured.

If the files were installed as objects on the client, users must remove those objects before using this release of EXTRA! Mainframe Server Edition. The procedure for doing this varies, depending on which browser the clients use.

To remove objects using Microsoft Internet Explorer
  1. From the Tools menu, click Internet Options.

  2. In the Temporary Internet Files group box, click Settings.

  3. In the Settings dialog box, click View Objects.

  4. In the Downloaded Program Files application window, right-click the appropriate item (such as the name of the viewer), and click Remove.

  5. Click OK in the dialog boxes and close the browser to complete the process.

To remove objects using Netscape Communicator
  1. For Netscape Communicator v. 6.x only, from the Windows Control Panel, select the Java Plug-In.

  2. Click the Clear tab.

  3. Select the Clear button to clear the cache.

  4. Close the Java Plug-In and the Control Panel.

  5. Click OK in the dialog boxes and close the browser to complete the process.
