Adding a Browser in v6 manager

Postby chrisr » Thu Jul 27, 2017 10:10 pm

All,
In Version 6 I am struggling to add and get a browser going in PB manager. I can do this in Version5 no issues. But in six, nothing will populate the window. Is there a document of settings I can double check? I've read this:

and
http://www.coolux.de/root/downloads/sup ... _files.htm

Also I've made sure my firewalls are turned off. Any Help would be much appreciated.
Thank You

Hi Chris,

I tested the browser asset in V6 and it's working fine.
Please try the following:
Go to Configuration > Resources > Preferred Browser Engine (in next session) and change it to "Awesomium".
After that please restart Pandoras Box.

Does it change anything?

Kind Regards,
Yvonne

Yvonne,
Yes, this worked. Thanks. But why are we still using Awesomium? I thought CEF was going to be the new browser engine. Is this on a pause?

Just curious. And Thank you for the tip on the restart.

Have a great weekend!
Thank You

I'm glad to read that it's working fine now.
Yes, you're absolutely right, it should also work with CEF. We'll take care of it.

Thank you, happy programming!
