To set up ApplicationXtender:

  • The faculty member must be logged in to their AD account.
  • Next have the faculty member log into banner using their usual method.
  • On the banner main screen, click the XS icon on the toolbar.
XS Icon In Banner
  • After Clicking on the XS Icon you should get this pop-up in banner:
Password Sync. Pop-up
  • If you do not get this pop-up, you may need to allow pop-ups on the Oracle Application Server Forms Services, (the background Banner window) for the Application Xtender Site.
  • Click OK on the Password Sync. Pop-up.
  • You will now need to close out of Banner completely.
  • Now you need to run Internet Explorer as an administrator (hold the shift key while right-clicking on the Banner icon and select Run As).
Run As
ApplicationXtender Address
  • The browser should take you to the ApplicationXtender page.
ApplicationXtender Page
  • Click the Login icon on the ApplicationXtender page to be directed to the Log-in page.
ApplicationXtender Log-in Page
  • On this page, have the faculty member log-in (the same user-name and password that they use in banner).
  • You will then need to run the Active-X controls that it prompts you.
Active-X Control Prompt
  • The two Active-X controls that it gives you to install are, and
  • If it does not prompt you to install the Active-x control, you will need to enable scanning, under the Page tab. The Page tab might not be accessible until you browse an image under the B-S-ID-Banner Student Common file (See Next Step).
Enable Scanning
  • To make sure that the Xtender set up is working properly, go to the B-S-ID-Banner Student Common file and open an image inside to see if it loads.

  • In order to log-out of Application Xtender, you must click on the log-out icon or else you will still be running the Xtender in the background and this will cause complications for you in the future.
