Install IE8 on Server 2012 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We would like to run IE8 on Server 2012 R2 as a RemoteApp to clients.  We have client computers running Windows 7 but still need access to IE8 for older applications.  We are currently routing them through a Citrix server but would like this as a remote desktop service.

    Thank you

  • Hi,

    This is not possible to install Internet Explorer 8 on Windows Server 2012 R2. I would like to suggest you use other operating system which could install Internet Explorer 8 to push it.

    There are other workarounds in this article, you could refer them:
