Hello All,

My company is currently struggling with the decision whether or not to allow Windows Automatic updates to download the new version of Internet Explorer 7 and roll it out across our network.

We’re trying to get a general conscious on how other companies and IT departments feel about rolling it out?  Any thoughts or experiences on the subject would be appreciated.

Thank you.

If you have tested all internal website with IE7 I see no problem to wait.

So far I've heard from Opentext, that their livelink ECM system is not compatible with IE 7, but even that was working w/o problems for me.

I guess we will ( 60 @ work) not block the update. Because we have a decend bunch of web developers, that are forced to make their sites IE7 conform.

Absolutely agree with Tolomir. Even if you disable the automatic updates via GPO, users still can download and use it. So just have a note that it is under testing and do the testing for all what you need, you applications.

Cheers,
Rajesh

Oracle e-business suite customers are told not to upgrade till Oracle certifies IE7. I am also having issues with some browser add ins for Crystal Report 10. Other than that good luck on implementation.

I recommend testing it yourself for a week or two to familiarize yourself with the layout , icons, and options etc also that gives IE7 time to get any real bugs out that are dangerous, then after that period of time start the roll out.
