  • Hello Enrico,

    At this time we would normally review a network or fiddler trace of the client to see why we are getting errors. If you have such a trace available we could take a quick look. The current version of Fiddler is available for download here. Please try these next steps as well to try and isolate the cause of the problem.

    1. Run Internet Explorer 8 underneath "Compatibility View".
    2. Run Internet Explorer 8 without add-ons ( iexplore.exe -extoff ).
    3. Test the website navigation from another Windows 7 machine or Vista machine running Internet Explorer 8.0.

    What sort of connection problems are you seeing specifically? Also, please post back the error message shown in Internet Explorer window after "Show Friendly HTTP Error Messages" is unchecked ( Tools | Internet Options | Advanced ).

  • Hello norman,

    here the detailed error from IE 8:

    Das Problem kann aus verschiedenen Gründen aufgetreten sein:
    • Die Internetkonnektivität ist verloren gegangen.
    • Die Website ist temporär nicht verfügbar.
    • Der Domänennamenserver (DNS) ist nicht erreichbar.
    • Der Domänennamenserver (DNS) verfügt über keinen Eintrag für die Domäne der Website.
    • Die Adresse enthält eventuell einen Tippfehler.
    • Wenn dies eine (sichere) HTTPS-Adresse ist, dann klicken Sie auf "Extras", "Internetoptionen", "Erweitert" und stellen Sie sicher, dass die SSL- und TLS-Protokolle im Sicherheitsabschnitt aktiviert sind.

    the Fiddler told me while downloading fsx sp1 after 2 minutes the following:

    24 200 HTTP download.microsoft.com /download/7/a/f/7af84201-aba4-4979-a750-f592e1399abf/fsx_sp1_DEU.exe 0   application/octet-stream iexplore:3580    

    TLS 1.1 and 1.2 are ticked / marked in the advanced menu.

    I hope this info will help you.

    Thank you for your post.

    You need to install the update that addresses certain application compatibility and reliability issues of Internet Explorer 8 in Windows 7.

    To immediately install the update, click Start , point to All Programs , and then click Windows Update . In the navigation pane, click Check for updates , and then follow the steps to install all recommended updates.

    On an additional note you have to restart the computer after you apply this update.
