The User's Job

To use your application via our Web thin client, end users typically have just one task: they must visit your Web site. If the user's browser supports the Web thin client and you have implemented the CODEBASE in your HTML code, users install the Web thin client automatically the first time they visit your Web site, and the Web thin client automatically launches your application.

If your customers do not already have the ACUCOBOL-GT Web Thin Client installed on their machine when they try to launch your application, they are informed that a control for the file type was not found, and they are asked if they want to install and run your program. If they respond Yes, the Web thin client installs with no further user interaction and automatically launches your program.

Note: Users must configure the browser to enable ActiveX controls. To do this in Internet Explorer, they should check the appropriate box in the Security tab of the Internet Explorer Options dialog.

For most users installing the Web thin client, they will be prompted to accept the digital signature of the control. The system also displays the terms and conditions for using the ACUCOBOL-GT Web Thin Client. Users must agree to the terms of the agreement in order to use the Web thin client.
