The "Upload Multiple Documents" command is an ActiveX control. It does not work with Firefox, Chrome, Safari etc.

Please see this article for details.

  • Sorry, missed that part of the question. What happens in the ULS or Fiddler when the Upload Multiple Documents command fails in IE? Which version of IE are you using?

  • Just to verify, are you using IE11 32bit? Have you tried older versions of IE?

I made the below change in the web.config file and multiple file upload functionality started working . The IIS setting blocks the multiple file upload functionality.

      <add verb="PUT" allowed="true" />
  • where to insert this tag in web.config?

Have you installed the .net patch to support IE versions 10+?
