Vim Connect for eCW Plug-in:

modify settings via script

If your organization is using the eCW plug-in to access eCW (as opposed to a standard browser window), you will need to adjust two settings to enable Vim Connect to run in the eCW plug-in, after installing the extension.

There are two relevant eCW plug-in settings for the Vim extension:

  1. “Default Browser Settings” – must be turned ON
    This setting affects the ability to run multiple plug-in sessions. If it is off – multiple sessions are enabled.
  2. “Incognito Mode” – must be turned OFF
    This setting makes each plug-in session run in incognito mode, where your installed extensions would not appear.


Follow the following steps

  1. Download the PowerShell script from this link:
  2. Open CMD with Admin permissions
  3. Type the following command and replace path\to\script with the path you saved the script:
    powershell -ExecutionPolicy bypass -File path\to\script\mod_ecw_settings.ps1

All done!

* If the eCW plug-on was open during the process it will have to be closed and re-opened for the updated settings to apply.

If you want to verify that the settings were changed as expected:

  1. In the login screen, click the settings button
  2. In the settings menu, click to expand “Plug-in Settings”
  3. Verify that “Default browser settings” is set to ON, and “Incognito Mode” is set to OFF
