    In release 11.5 of Automation Point, we added support for the Google Chrome web browser to launch the Web MV Java applet. Unknown to us at the time, Google had announced their intentions to no longer support the Java Plug-In in a future version of their browser (version 42, the current version of Chrome). This means that once you update to this version of Chrome, you will no longer be able to launch the Web MV applet. See the following article for more details:

    To work around this problem, you can either use another supported browser (IE, Firefox) or follow these instructions to re-enable the NPAPI component of Chrome:

    1. In your URL bar, enter:
      chrome://flags/#enable-npapi
    2. Click the Enable link for the Enable NPAPI configuration option.
    3. Click the Relaunch button that now appears at the bottom of the configuration page.
