I'm looking for the best approach to implement multi-file upload / download across multiple browsers (IE, Firefox, Safari, Chrome).  HTML5 isn't supported on IE, ActiveX works on IE, Java Applets seem to be be a thing of the past.

Any suggestions on the best way to approach this would be greatly appreciated.

Your going to  handle this serverside.   For asp I have always used http://www.aspupload.com/ and always works, never an issue.   I have helped people on EE in the past with http://www.freeaspupload.net  I remember there were some issues but we got it to work.  Also free but I have never used is http://www.aspfree.com/c/a/ASP/ASP-Upload-Class/

I have used aspupload for 13 years always good.  There is also http://www.chilkatsoft.com/ which I have watched but never used. It has grown over the years and they have upload libraries for multiple languages for free.

These are some good upload capabilities and I have had good experience using freeaspupload.net.  So far I haven't seen any solutions for downloads.  

The functionality I am trying to implement is file 'Check-out' (download from the server) and file 'Check-in' (upload to the server) to provide basic version control.  Of course before Check-out can occur a bulk /  multi-file upload needs to happen to load the library with the originall content.  All of this needs to be as seemless as possible for the end user.

You would be better separating your question into it's constituent parts - expecting too much for one question to give you code to do uploading, downloading and design a check in/out system as well.
