Hello,

I'm a new user of EPF and I've starting using it to build our internal processes.
My main drawback until now is that I still not managed to install the richtext pluggin.

What is the issue?
When on a page where I have the "main description" inputbox, it is not possible to enter any text.

What I've done?
I've downloaded the package "epf-richtext-1.5.1.5-win32" and copied the existing files and folders into my EPF folder.

What is my environment?
Windows 7 64bits
EPF 1.5.1.5

Error seen in EPF log:

So after hours of tries and searches on Internet, I don't really know what to do.
This tool is the one I would like to use, so that I feel quite sad to be blocked only on this point.

Many thanks to any one that could help me Wink

Greetings

Nils

Hello,

One complement I've discovered in the log file at the very begining of the session start part, I can see this:

Perhaps this exception is the root cause.

Any ideas?

Thanks

I finally solved my issue.

The cause was IE9 ... indeed I don't know how I found that but it seems that the RichText uses IE but on my computer the 32bits version of IE9 was not working.
So I reinstalled it and registered the ddl back ... and small miracle in my day, EPF richtext now works.

I hope this feedback could help some users in the same situation.

Greetings
