Enabling Safari file upload access on OSX High Sierra

With the update to Mac OSX High Sierra (10.13.x) Apple have changed the default setup of all websites that use the Microsoft Silverlight plugin. This change effectively disabled the website from accessing the local file system and preventing users from upload files to SPAstandard. Follow the below steps to fix this issue.

Step 1: Open the Safari Preferences (Under the Safari Menu item)

Step 1: Open Safari, Click on Safari then click Preferences.

Step 2: Select the Websites tab, click on the Silverlight Plug-in and click on the entry in the Silverlight list.

Step 2: Click on the security tab

Step 3: Hold the Option key and click on the drop down selector in the list beside If not already set to ON, change this to ON, also uncheck the Run in Safe Mode setting, as displayed below.

Step 3: Make sure Allow Plug-ins is ticked and then select "Manage Website Settings..."

Step 4: Quit Safari from the menu and then re open it and log back into SPAstandard. The Application should now have access to the local file system.

Step 4: Click on Silverlight from the left hand menu.

You will now be able to upload files into SPA.
