Cloud Assist troubleshooting guide

NOTE: Cloud Assist is no longer supported by Safari because of recent updates made by Apple. Please use a different browser to take advantage of Cloud Assist.


How to locate a file saved through Cloud Assist on your computer

When editing with Cloud Assist, a copy of the edited file is saved locally on your computer. Cloud Assist saves the files in a folder with a numerical name. For example, it could look something like "1389683211853-0". To make the folder easier to find, you can sort the folders/files by modified date and look for a numerical folder that was modified on the same date as the changes you made. The folders on your computer can be found here:


    • Macintosh HD>private>var>folders>[folder]>[folder]>[folder]>[numerically named folder]>[file name]
Your private folder may be set to not display. To display it run the following terminal command:
defaults write AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
Restart finder when you are finished.


Edge browser is not supported. Please use Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer 11 or Safari (Mac)

Windows Vista and Windows 7

  • C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Temp\[numerically named folder]\[file name]

Windows XP

  • C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Local Settings\Temp\[numerically named folder]\[file name]

If you have trouble running Cloud Assist through Firefox or getting your Cloud Assist extension to install on Firefox, we recommend installing the extension manually. To do this, you will first need to open Firefox. Once opened, select the three horizontal bars in the top right corner and then select "Add-ons"

Next, select "Extensions" on the left side of the screen. On the "Extensions" screen, click on the gear icon to the left of the search feature. From the drop down menu, select "Install Add-on from File..."


From the select file section, follow this path to find the desired extension file: C:\Program Files (x86)\Cloud Assist\Resources\FF. Select the file named "imeetcentral @ imeetcentral.xpi".


Select "Install Now" on the next page.

Complete the installation by restarting Firefox. 

If Cloud Assist doesn't work on your Firefox consider manually installing the plug-in for Firefox. Begin by downloading the Firefox extension file (xpi). From here open Firefox and then Open the Add-ons Manger > (Alt + t > a) click on the gear icon (Tools for all add-ons) > Install Add-on From File.. > browse to the add-on > double click the Cloud Assist XPI file (or select Open) > Install Now.
