Title: XMF Color Path Organizer won't load on Safari
Post by: AaronH on December 28, 2018, 06:55:05 PM
Hey guys, I'm getting an odd issue. I can't open Color Path Organizer on Safari. I have Silverlight installed and it is in the Internet Plugins folder in the mac's library. It just shows this screen to download Silverlight.

Good luck getting anything to run that uses Silverlight:

Quote
Microsoft Silverlight is an application framework for writing and running rich Internet applications, with features and purposes similar to those of Adobe Flash. The run-time environment for Silverlight is available as a plug-in for web browsers running under Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. While early versions of Silverlight focused on streaming media, current versions support multimedia, graphics, and animation, and give developers support for CLI languages and development tools. Microsoft announced the end of life of Silverlight 5 in 2012. In 2013, Microsoft announced that they had ceased development of Silverlight except for patches and bugfixes. Microsoft has set the support end date for Silverlight 5 to be October 2021. Silverlight is no longer supported in Google Chrome since September 2015,and in Firefox since March 2017. There is no Silverlight plugin available for Microsoft Edge.

Now that you mention it, I tried to fire up ColorPath a few weeks ago and hit the same wall. I know Silverlight is a rampant pos, I've already got to place a call to Fuji Monday since Acronis on the server isn't performing backups correctly, I'll try to ask about this too.

Haven't seen that in years. I kind of forgot about it.

talked to them today about a few things, they're aware of the ColorPath/Safari crapfest & the solution (for now) is to only use a specific Firefox Release on Mac, or IE on Windows. They said in the next XMF update, it'll be HTML5 and all browsers should be OK.

Thanks. I got it to finally work on Firefox Extended Release 52. Firefox then promptly updated itself to the current release, 64 or something and ColorPath Organizer stopped working. I couldn't figure out what happened until I realized my tabs/windows looked different. It's now set to never update.

Haha! Was that a marketing campaign from Microsoft? Sorry, I just got back from being out sick most of last week with the flu. I'm not 100% sharp yet.

Colorpath needs Silverlight. It is easier to make it run in Safari than Firefox or Chrome. Just configure Safari to enable Java and internet plug-ins, in this case Silverlight to "always allow".
