Save it on your PC you use to work on ValuePRO.
Double click on the Edge Helper Application file.

Hit the continue button.
Make sure you completely close the Edge browser if you had it open.

That is it! This concludes the work of the Helper tool.
Question: What does the tool do exactly?

Question: Do I need to keep the downloaded file on my PC after I have completed the installer process above?
Answer: No. You do not need to keep these files on your PC for it to work. Once you run the application, it sets up Edge correctly for using ValuePRO, whereafter its work is done. If you change computers, you should run this tool again on your new pc.
Question: Can I do the installation while I have IE and Edge open?
Answer: Yes and no, You can have it open, it will still work. Before opening your ValuePRO instance on Edge, close Edge to restart the browser first. This ensures the changes take effect.
Question: I have accidentally updated my system to only use Edge by clicking the wrong button, how can I get IE back while my system is being updated to work on Edge?
Answer: If your system still needs to be brought to Edge readiness you have to roll back to IE on your device. To do this, for now, go to your Control panel, click on “Turn Windows features on or off” and select the tick box next to IE to be active again.
PS: If you cannot see this tick box please ask your IT Admin to help.
Question: My Antivirus Software and/or Windows Defender blocks this file from running. Can I force it?
Answer: Yes, click "More info" on the Windows Defender popup and select "Run anyway". With Antivirus software, you may have to disable the Antivirus program for a moment to run the Edge Helper Tool. Just remember to switch it back on when done.
Question: I am new to Edge, where can I learn more about the settings and usage of it?
Answer: Speak to your IT team or look on Microsoft Edge help & learning - Microsoft Support
Question: I have done the Helper tool setup on Windows 10. Do I need to run it again after I update to Windows 11?
Answer: Yes. Your settings would have been reset with the new install of Windows 11. Do steps 1 - 5 again for a brand new pc/laptop too.
Question: How do I know if I had success installing the Helper Tool?
Answer: You will have a blue IE logo in the address bar of Edge when you open your ValuePRO URL:
When you can see this blue IE logo when you open your work url (example admin.yourfirmname.com), it all worked fine. Sometimes, your machine may require a restart.
