What happens when you choose the bulk upload tool? If you have used the bulk upload tool befiore, the control is loaded instantly and automatically. But if this is your first time, Internet Explorer will prompt you to install it. The following dialog will appear:

If you click "Yes", the Image Uploader is downloaded to your computer - this should take less than 30 seconds in most cases. You will not need to download it again unless you remove it from your browser cache or a newer version is available.

Note: If you do not see a dialog box prompting you to install Image Uploader, it is likely that too strict security restrictions are specified in your browser settings. The default security settings of Internet Explorer on workstation Windows versions (like Windows 98, Windows 2000 Pro, or Windows XP) allows signed controls, however default settings of server editions (Windows 2000 Server, Windows 2003) restrict all the downloadable code (even JavaScript). If you have problems with it, follow these steps:

Open Internet Options (menu Tools -> Internet Options...).
Select Security tab.
Click button Custom Level....
Check option Download signed ActiveX controls. It must be set to Prompt (or Enable if you do not want to see prompt dialog before installing the control).

Note 1: In spite of the fact that in this case Image Uploader is not downloaded from Web, it may still be suppressed by browser security settings. please check your security options as above.

Image Uploader is an ActiveX control, which means that it can be used mostly in Windows versions of Internet Explorer. However Image Uploader can be used also in Mozilla and Netscape browsers (with some limitations though). To use the the Image Uploader (or anyother ActiveX control), you can use Mozilla ActiveX Plugin. This plugin allow Mozilla-based browsers to host ActiveX controls.

Image Uploader cannot be installed automatically. Unlike Internet Explorer, Mozilla will not automatically download CAB file, extract it and register. You must do this manually as above.

Not all Mozilla versions support ActiveX plugin. It will work only on Windows platforms, so, for example, Linux users still will not be able to use Image Uploader.
