Resolves the apostrophe wrapped file download issue with Dynamics 365. Provided by Reenhanced.com

This will remove the ' character from file downloads so your computer knows what application can open the downloaded file.

There is a bug in Dynamics that saves files with names like 'filename.xls'. For example, if you're downloading a report called CrmReport.xls it gets saved to your computer as 'CrmReport.xls' with the extension of .xls'.
This means that your machine isn't able to open the files without a rename.

This is caused because Dynamics does not understand how to send a valid file request response to Edge so it saves the file as surrounded by single quotes.

This simple script identifies when files are downloaded that start and end with ' and simply removes the leading and trailing '.

There is no data stored, no data sent and no records of your usage of this extension are kept.

Risk impact

Dynamics CRM File Download Fix requires very minimum permissions and is relatively safe to use.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Dynamics CRM File Download Fix has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that an Edge add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Edge add-on reputation on Edge Add-on Store, the amount of time the Edge add-on has been around, and other signals about the Edge add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing an Edge add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

This has been a problem for my CRM users for a couple of years now. It's a shame that a 3rd party had to be the one to come along and fix Microsoft's mess, but at least it's fixed. Thank you, devs.
