How to enable ink

  1. Ink is only supported on Internet Explorer as it is an activex plug-in
  2. To enable ink, you have to activate it in your user profile. Just click your username in the upper right corner and set enable ink to yes under the "Site Options" tab. To learn more about Profile settings and options, click here to read the guide.
  3. You'll need to add the website that has the ink to your list of trusted sites in IE (Internet Explorer)
    • Tools
      > Internet Options > 'Security' tab > 'Trusted Sites' > click
      the Sites button.
    • In the Trusted sties window type https://* and http://* to trust the entire site. You might run into the issue of having a window display "Site added to this zone must use the https:// prefix. This prefix assures a secure connection." Just click ok, uncheck the checkbox that says "Require server verification (https:) for all the sites in this zone, click add, recheck the checkbox, click OK.
  4. You might run into more issues if you have the .Net framework 2.0 installed. If you do, follow this instructions:
  • If you have the .NET Framework
    version 2.0 installed, Internet Explorer will try to use the v2.0 runtime
    to run the hosted component. To keep Internet Explorer from doing this,
    you must setup a .config file for Internet Explorer to use, to force it
    to use v1.1 of the .NET Framework. To do this, create a file named iexplore.exe.config
    in Internet Explorer's home directory (e.g. C:Program FilesInternet
    Explorer) and put the following XML into it:

    <supportedRuntime version="v1.1.4322"/>

    That didn't work for me personally, but uninstalling the .Net framekwork 2.0 did work :O. I seriously would try that and look around before uninstalling it, as it might be needed for some other program you might have, plus ink is just a nice bonus, not a must have thing I think. Best of luck!!
