This section describes possible browser-related issues that you may encounter when deploying and using GAX.
Blocked Downloads in Internet Explorer 9
If you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) 9, an attempt to download Audio Resource Files, encoded files, and other GAX downloads might be blocked by the IE information bar. After you confirm the download, you are redirected to the main page and then have to repeat the download request. You can adjust your browser settings to prevent this scenario.
This issue is not GAX-specific; it is related to your IE settings. To prevent IE 9 from blocking your GAX downloads, you must disable the download information bar for GAX downloads.
There are two approaches that you can take to solve this issue:
- Configuring IE 9 to allow all downloads without warnings
- Configuring IE 9 to allow GAX downloads without warnings
If you are using IE 10 or 11, the Windows Download Manager handles all download requests, and this problem does not occur.

Users of Safari cannot play Audio Resource files in Genesys Administrator Extension. This is because Safari does not support playing .wav files.
