What is “IS” suffix in IE11 version? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm running Windows 10 Pro (64) and stock IE11 with "Install new versions automatically" enabled.

    My current version is: 11.545.10586.0IS

    What does IS suffix mean?

    I'm having a problem with font-awesome.io, and wondering if "IS" suffix have to do anything with it. Specifically, icon's on font-awesome.io won't render unless I turn off "Enable Protected Mode" in Internet Settings. On my other computer without "IS" suffix - FA is rendered fine with or without protected mode enabled.

    Is there an option to install "non-IS" version?

    I installed IE using "Programs and Features" -> "Turn Windows features on or off".

    It means that the install of IE that you are using was probably created by an IEAK.
