According to the Release Letter, Configuration Manager is used for configuration and licensing of the various products. It includes Video SDK 6.3 and latest plug-ins for VCA configuration.
Therefore, in web browsers that do not support MPEG-ActiveX, VCA configuration is only possible via Configuration Manager. An info message to use Configuration Manager is presented, with a hint where to get Configuration Manager if it is not installed.
You can Download Configuration Manager from Download Store > Software > select Configuration Manager
