Using CAMS with Microsoft Edge

Tags Cams

Each workstation must be set up to run CAMS Enterprise. You will need to run the following procedures on every workstation to be used for CAMS Enterprise. Only Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge can be used with CAMS Enterprise.

  • Setup Microsoft Edge IE Mode
  • Create CAMS Enterprise as a trusted site
  • Apply security settings
  • Set refresh rates
  • Run ActiveX controls

Operating System

It is important that the latest Windows Updates for your Windows Operating Systems have been downloaded from Microsoft and installed on the workstation.

Microsoft Edge Setup

Be sure you have the newer Chromium version of Microsoft Edge. It is downloaded here:

How to enable IE mode on Microsoft Edge

  1. Open Microsoft Edge on Windows 10.
  2. Click the Settings and More (ellipsis) button on the top-right corner.
  3. Select the Settings option.
  4. Click on Default browser.
  5. Under the “Internet Explorer compatibility” section, turn on the “Allow sites to be reloaded in Internet Explorer mode” toggle switch. …
  6. Add the URL of your CAMS site under Internet Explorer Mode Pages (note: this will have to be refreshed every 30 days)
  7. Click the Restart button.

Note: This may be managed by your organization.

To Set Refresh Rate

This setting determines when a page is refreshed in your Internet browser. As a standard practice, Edge will cache browser pages. Unless provisions are made to check the server for the most updated version, the browser will reuse the page stored in cache. For this reason, have your browser check for newer versions of these stored pages every visit to the page.

  1. In Edge, open Settings
  2. In the Privacy section, turn on Clear chosen data for Internet Explorer and Internet Explorer mode every time you exit Microsoft Edge. Then go to delete browsing history, which is listed just below it.

3.In delete browsing history, choose Temporary Internet Files and Cookies and website data.

  1. CAMS will now refresh each time it is opened.

Disable Pop-Up blocker for CAMS

CAMS Enterprise makes use of pop-up windows. If pop-ups are loaded into a new tab, no CAMS initiated navigation will work. For this reason, Microsoft Edge will need to be configured to open pop-ups in a new window rather than in a new tab.

  1. In Edge, go to edge://settings/content/popups.
  2. Add the CAMS website to Allow.

To Add CAMS Enterprise as a Trusted Site

As part of the setup, CAMS must be identified as a “Trusted Site” and defined in the security settings in the Internet Options window.

  1. Open the Internet Options dialog box in Internet Explorer by navigating to Control Panel >Internet Options and click the Security tab.
  1. Click the Trusted sites icon.
  2. Click the Sites button to access the site entry form.
  3. Enter the name of your site where CAMS Enterprise is located. This will be in the format of “http://yourserver/CAMSEnterprise” as a default. Check with your administrator for verification of site name.
  4. Uncheck the box labeled “Require server verification (https) for all sites in this zone” unless you have configured CAMS Enterprise as an HTTPS website.
  5. Click Add and then OK to save entry.

To Set Security Settings

  1. The next step is to define your IE security settings. Upon saving your trusted site entry, you will be returned to the Internet Options dialog box.
  2. With the Security tab still chosen and Trusted Sites still selected, click the Custom Level button to access the Security Settings. Make sure the Trusted Sites icon is still selected.
  3. Under “Reset custom settings”, select Low from the drop-down list and click Reset. Run ActiveX.asp

Prior to running CAMS Enterprise for the first time, run the ActiveX.asp file. Doing so will download all ActiveX

controls at one time. The alternative is to download each one individually at the time the windows are accessed in the program. If this alternative is chosen, each time you access a window containing an ActiveX control that has not yet been downloaded, you will be prompted to do so. Because most prefer not to deal with the prompts and individual downloads, running the ActiveX.asp file is the option most used.

Warning: The user logged in to this computer must have administrative rights to the local machine to install ActiveX and Crystal Viewer on the workstation. Once the objects are loaded they do not have to be loaded again by each user.

To Install ActiveX Components

Type the following URL in to your browser address. Supply your institution’s server name and virtual root: Click the Click to Install CAMS Components to begin installation of the ActiveX controls. The actual process is very short and is completed when you receive the status of “Done” in the bottom left corner of your browser.In addition to installing the ActiveX Controls to run CAMS Enterprise (as previously described), the Crystal Reports Viewer requires its own ActiveX Control.


1.Click Click to Install Crystal Report Viewer.

This process runs very quickly. A white box will open during the process. If the white box does NOT have a red X in the upper left corner and displays a report, the process has completed successfully.
