IE WebControls RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a web application that is still using IE WebControls 1.0. Today, I tried to install it in Windows 2016 Standard and I got the pop up message "Microsoft Internet explorer WebControls requires IIS version 5 or higher". The Microsoft rep that I chat with was unable to locate a downloadable version either. Any help would be very appreciated as to:

    - How I get pass this error?

    - Where can I obtain a version that works with Windows 2016 and IIS 10?

    - Does Microsoft still support IE WebControls?

    - What is the upgrade path look like?

    Thank you again,

    I'd ask here in microsoft official IIS/FTP/SMTP forums about compatibility / development issues

  • I need to support a legacy application using the IEWebcontrols. I have an new system with Windows 10 and  IIS 10.  The link provided above for Webcontrols is not working. I had a downloaded copy of it in my backup and i get the same error as the original poster "Microsoft Internet explorer WebControls requires IIS version 5 or higher."

    Is there a version that is compatible with IIS10 or later?
