[EP-tech] problem with file names in IE

Greetings all,


I wonder if any of you have experienced this issue, and if so, did you have a fix?


We’ve just been ‘upgraded’ so all our machines now have Windows 7 and IE 8.

When we do a file upload through IE8 the pdf ends up with a crazy name containing the full UNC path of the file


E.g.  Uploading “actualFileName.pdf” from my desktop results in a file called



being attached to the eprint.


If I do the upload via Chrome (either with the ‘choose file’ button or by drag and drop) then the filename is correct (“actualFileName.pdf”) on the eprint.


Thoughts, opinions & solutions anyone?
