Af:inputFile Component Shows "Java Application Blocked" Popup on IE11

(Doc ID 2418399.1)

Last updated on JULY 05, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle JDeveloper - Version 11.1.1.9.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When displaying on IE11 the af:inputFile component, a "Java Application Blocked" popup appears on the screen, showing the following error message:


When clicking OK on the popup, the popup does not reappear unless the browser is closed and reopened.
Although, a red message "Error. Click for details" appears and disappears twice inside the component.

The client machines and browsers are locked down, so no extra software can be installed and IE security settings cannot be modified.

The expected result is that the component shows without errors or warnings, like it happens on Google Chrome.
In other browsers, it is working fine without the error
