How to Download Attachments from Shared Pages If You Are Using Internet Explorer 8/9

  1. The shared pages have all the resources embedded (css, files, js). It is possible to trigger the download of a resource dynamically form javascript but it is browser dependant. To face this situation, FileSaver library is used. However, this library has no support for IE8/IE9.
  2. Thus, Internet Explorer 8/9 users cannot directly download files from an html file with embedded resources.
  3. To overcome this situation, you need to download this decoder.
  4. When a IE8/9 user clicks on an attachment, e.g., Workbook1.xlsx, the file is downloaded as a .txt (e.g., 4227088-xlsx.txt).
  5. Select or drag and drop this file into the decoder.
  6. When screen becomes green, the txt file has been decoded in the same folder the txt file was.
