Hi Folks,

today you’re often faced with IE compatibility issues – and of course with the technical solution of these problems.

Via GPO you’ve an easy way to roll-out compatiblity-view Settings in your Domain. You can set these values for machine and user context. Take a look at the users and computers settings.

Browse to:
User Configuration -> Policies -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Internet Explorer -> Compatibility View

Policy: “Use Policy List of Internet Explorer 7 sites / Richtlinienliste von Internet Explorer 7 Sites verwenden”

policyie
When using the policy take care of following points:

  • For IE8 there must be specified domain name and not server or subdomain name, ie “dargel.at” instead of “blog.dargel.at”
  • For IE9 there must be specified domain name or subdomain name, ie “dargel.at” or “blog.dargel.at”
  • There must be no final slash “/” , ie “dargel.at” instead of “dargel.at/”
  • These settings are used, but are not visible in the user GUI

    FYI: The list ends up in the following registry key configured:
    HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Browser Emulation\Policy List
    and contains for each configured domain a REG_SZ value.

Cheers,

Chris

Hi Folks,

I just upgraded my Windows 7 installation to Windows 8 Enterprise RTM. The compatibility check failed because of Intel PRO Wireless Utility and Avira AntiVir Pro. After uninstalling the both programs the upgrade started regulary. After some reboots and 1,5 hours installing I logged in first.

Everything looked fine, all apllications started as usual. The desktop and taskbar symbols appeared as before, just the start button was missing. I installed the ClassicShell and got my start button back.

In combination with ClassicShell Windows 8 has nearly the same usability as Windows 7 + the possibilty tu use the new features and the new (formerly known as METRO) interface. So I wish you a happy upgrading and installing 🙂

Cheers,

Chris

Today I cleaned up my PC and wanted to delete unnecessary OS files.
After reading the deployment guide for Windows 7 / 2008R2 I figured out the following command, which will delete those files permanent. You have to launch an administrative command line:

DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /spsuperseded

Cheers,

Chris
