Displaying OS Files

enaio® 10.10 »

OS files, that is, references to documents managed in enaio®, can be opened by double clicking them either in enaio® client or in enaio® webclient as a desktop application. This is the default settings for workstations with enaio® client. These are assigned to enaio® client or enaio® webclient as a desktop application by assigning an application with the file extension 'os' via the operating system settings. The user can define the default application via the 'Open with' function from the context menu.

If enaio® client is defined as an application and you press Ctrl (if necessary, until enaio® client is launched), the document is opened as a read-only file; if you press Shift, the index data will be opened. Pressing Ctrl+Shift will open the location.

enaio® webclient as a desktop application always opens with index data and the document preview.


Installing enaio® client will also install AxPreview.exe in the enaio® client installation directory. This application can show a preview of enaio® documents in the Windows Explorer preview window when an OS file is selected.

The AxPriew.exe directory is where you will find the AxPreview.exe.config configuration file, which can be modified. You will also find the AxPreview.txt file, which contains configuration examples, in this directory.

Configuration with basic authentication in AxPreview.exe.config:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
    <section name="log4net" type="log4net.Config.Log4NetConfigurationSectionHandler,log4net" />
    <add key="PdfViewerUrl" value="http://<enaio-domain>/dashlets/pdfview/viewer.html?osid={OBJECTIDENT}"/>
    <add key="User" value="username"/>
    <add key="Password" value="userpw"/>

AxPreview.exe requires Windows components that are part of the Chromium version of Microsoft Edge. If this version is not installed on the workstation, then these components must be installed later. Use the MicrosoftEdgeWebView2RuntimeInstallerX64(X86).exe application located in the directory containing the MSI package of enaio® client.
