Google Chrome extension - How to disable prompt?

Postby mtorman » Tue May 18, 2021 6:28 pm

Just updated to v6.5.4. I understand that 'Wing Download Manager' is a new feature requiring users to install a Chrome extension to use it...

For now, this pop-up dialog is suddenly confusing for our external users, many of whom do use Chrome but are not familiar with installing extensions. And we don't want to be in the business of instructing/supporting them on extensions either.

Is there any way to disable this feature / prompt? Or is there any way to go back to the previous multi-file downloader?

I didn't see any advice or documentation, nor any way to control it in the admin panel. Please advise, thanks.

OK, previous multi-file downloader was removed because web browser stopped supporting Java applet.
And for disabling the prompt, you can edit the file "webclient/main.html", just remove the line 1975:
showMessagebox(..., null, 420, 280);
