Windows 7 breaks OWA. KB911829 Patch makes it worse
Posted on 2010-01-07
I am testing Windows 7 prior to deployment and ran into the red "X" issue in OWA, preventing editing or composing messages. I followed up on that and found lots of articles referencing KB911829 as the fix. I applied that patch to my Exchange server and now my Windows 7 OWA access is totally distorted with no functionality. There is a "Loading..." reference but it never completes. There is a menu down the left and at the top but clicking any icon just reloads the same page. I found several references to distorted OWA screen in IE7, some dating back to Exchange 2k. None of those solutions seem applicable. This is Exchange 2003 Standard Edition with service pack 2 installed, IE8 on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. Thanks in advance.
