Support Anfrage: Wildcard for accessing all files under a folder


Having an issue viewing a page on a website. From what I have been able to figure out the site is downloading and launching an htm file from a temporary internet files folder but the url filter is blocking access to the htm file. I would need a way to allow access any files and folders under a specific directory. Below is the error from the log. Any suggestions?

[SiteKiosk] Notification: According to the surf area rules the navigation to file:///C:/Users/mis/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/INetCache/IE/ZB3MZCTK/partStatement_ViewStatementDetailEvent[1].htm was canceled.

Thank you for your inquiry. You may have three options to choose from since, the web page delivers a htm file as download:

1. (Best advised) In SiteKiosk configuration, switch to Chrome Browser skin, allow Downloads and add a File Action rule that the downloaded htm file will be opened in SiteKiosk.

(Last two, if you want continue using an IE based skin)
2. Edit the “DownloadManager.xml” at “C:\Program Files (x86)\SiteKiosk\Xml” and make SiteKiosk to copy the HTM to the download folder by changing this line:
<extension name='htm' download='1' open='2'/>
To to this:
<extension name='htm' download='2' open='2'/>

3. In SiteKiosk configuration, add a new entry to the Surfing Area settings (URLs/Paths) that allows the access to the cache IE path.
Example: -
Protocol: file://
URL: C:/Users/<your expected user>/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/INetCache/IE/*
Access to this URL: Granted

Best regards,

Thanks Andre. I went with your first suggestion and was able to get past the filter error but now I get the following error: “A fatal error has occurred. Check nohup for error details.”
I looked up nohup and saw some people suggested adding the affected site to trusted sites but that doesn't seem to help. I also tried your last two suggestions and get the same results using IE. I have verified outside of Sitekiosk the PC is able to load the page properly. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your findings. It seemed that the error message you received was from the website itself and might be related to a compatibility issue. Can you test the website outside of SiteKiosk with the Chromium CEF (81.0.4044.138 Windows 32 Bit) test application -

(Download the file, unzip 2 times [Opensource 7-zip can be used] and run the cefclient.exe found in the "Release" folder):


I found an online article from a few years back of a similar situation where an individual could not see his financial statements in one browser versus another. Though I cannot fully depend on this article, it adds perspective to the issue you are having: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/965427

Please report what you have experienced using the CEF app. I would like to know if the web page will open in the browser or force a file download. For example in the CEF app, clicking on a PDF link will open the PDF document right away instead of downloading the file.

Best regards,
