IE 11 and SBS 2008 RWW

    Question

  • Have an SBS 2008 network with several remote workers who connect to local desktops via RWW.  One had his Windows 7 PC updated to Internet Explorer 11 last night and when he connected to SBS 2008 this morning he found that the "Connect to Computer" option was missing.  He had been using IE 10 with compatibility mode enabled, and once I had him uninstall IE 11 all was back to normal.  I didn't have him try compatibility mode in IE 11 since neither of us yet knew how to find it.  SHould this fix the problem with IE 11 or are there other issues?

  • Hi,

    Thanks for posting in the forum.

    Regarding the current issue, I suggest you could refer to the following similar thread. As it mentioned, maybe you need to turn off UAC, then navigate to Program Files\Internet Explorer and create a shortcut for IE11 on the desktop. Then, right click and run as administrator.

  • Hi

    There is a sticky at the top of the forum about this and IE11.... not clear who is fixing it... whether the fix is for sbs or IE.. but this is a common problem on all connection buttons even Linux hosted ones.

    Go to the relevant website thats failing

    Right click on IE11, by the tabs and initialise the Command Bar

    Click on Page and chose Compatibility View Settings (In IE11, there is no immediate compatibility view simple click)
    Add the domain the the list

    Click Ok and all should work as normal

  • wheres the sticky gone about the IE11 and RWW issue that was at the top of the SBS forums?

    It said there would be an update out in November to fix the issue where you had to put IE11 in compatibility mode to use the RWW features.

    The sticky has gone, no details about the update, no details if it was a IE update or a server update

    Any help?
