Windows Server 2008 R1 TS Web Access not IE8 compatible

Hello,

I have installed windows server 2008 R1 with terminal services web access.  When using the "Terminal Services Remote Desktop Web Connection" page we have noticed that the "Options" button does not work correctly.  The options appear but then dissapear instantly, but if you run IE8 in compatability mode it works perfectly.  From this I have deduced that microsoft have written a web page that is not compatible with their own browsers after IE7.

Does anyone know if microsoft have issued an update or fix for the gross oversite?

Cheers,

Tony

I found an article that allows you to configure a web page to always open in compatability mode.  It seems that this problem is only with IE8, IE9 works fine with it.
