  • Hello everyone,

    Does someone know if IE8 32bits is fully supported for SP 2013?

    I found this post http://technet.microsoft.com/fr-be/library/cc263526.aspx

    but it is not specifying 32 ou 64 bits..

    The trouble is that I've an installation with windows XP SP2 + IE8 32 bits and I have some trouble (button disappearing, freeze and other..) the same site with IE 10 is working perfectly..

    Thanks in advance


    Best regards, Christopher.

  • I had issues with it working too.

    I would say that in my experience it does not function correctly despite being listed as supported.

  • IE 8 does not support the 2013 fully.

    For example the drag and drop can't be used in IE 8 !

    I recommand using the latest version of the browser.

    Most businesses still use XP, and IE8 is the latest IE for that OS. We had to install Chrome.

    I didn't no, I don't think XP 64 bit was that great, it seemed less hassle to install Chrome on the older systems.

  • Drag and Drop will work with both IE 8 and 9 (32-bit) if you have Office 2013 installed on your computer.  Drag and Drop without Office 2013 does work with the latest versions of Safari, Chrome, Firefox, and IE 10.  

    Some things still only work with IE (Note that IE 7 and earlier are not supported):  Dragging and dropping webparts on pages, Export to Excel, Open with Explorer, Connect to Office, and the Import Spreadsheet App.  
       
    * 64-bit browsers still cause issues with SharePoint.  For example all the active x is still broken with the 64-bit IE versions, so no open with Explorer, Connect to Office, Export to Excel, etc.

  • IE8 32 bit is fully supported, as explained in the link you already have:

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc263526.aspx#supportmatrix

    This supersedes earlier statements specifically on bit version such as the compatibility list shown in this early MS presentations on browser support.  You can find that nicely bogged down here:

    http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&ved=0CEMQFjAD&url=http%3A%2F%2Fdownload.microsoft.com%2Fdownload%2F5%2F9%2F6%2F596A07E1-A256-4477-8A02-9B1AC19F1663%2F1_what_new_SP2013.pptx&ei=VRiRUc6TIKPw0gXKyIDgCg&usg=AFQjCNHCNduL0FWjD_gbPS-I2-znX2TrTg&bvm=bv.46340616,d.d2k&cad=rja

    So IE8 32 is supported with any activeX caveats outlined in the current support matrix.

    I'll further caveat that by saying that supported and working are not always the same thing and Microsoft recommend that you review the browsers used in your organization to guarantee optimal performance with SharePoint 2013.  I would recommend that you try your sites in compatibility mode if you can to work out where you might see issues if this is likely to affect many users.

    Its all well and good saying its fully supported, but the reality is basic features do not work.
