How to Checkout a file in Tactic ?

Hello,
When i try to checkout a file (.jpg) i have an "Applet is Null" error.
The Checkin was ok, so my file exists on the server "/home/apache/assets/test/03_Assets/CH/Roger_Turn01/Roger_Checkout.jpg"
But i can't checkout ... Do i need to develop specific java or python code to have the checkout working ?
 
Regards,
Stephane.

Of course I'm facing the same problem. The Applet Null is a Java problem. This is why Tactic went to html5 format with the drag and drop method. This is good for uploading, but there is no method to downloading. Kinda sucks since I have a project server on an Amazon site and I depend on artists being able to download files to work on them.

The only solution I have right now is to stick with Tactic 4.1 and ask people to use Firefox version 33. This seems to be the last version to work well with Java. Of course this also presents a few security vulnerability  issues for those people. Some kind of solution would be appreciated here. I wouldn't want to stick with 4.5 only to have to provide some other way for artists to download the files.

I'm not an expert when it comes to web development, but isn't it possible to create a custom Link Widget that will download a file instead of navagating to it? For example using the href download command.

This way you could create a column in the Snapshots to automatically link to that published file.
