I have an issue with a website used for EMR.  It only works in IE8 and IE9.  My new computers are all Windows 8 with IE10.  Does anyone know if I can install IE9 on a windows 8 platform?  Removing IE10 is not a problem.

Hi.

I never heard of someone who installed an IE of a lower version compared to that his OS shipped with... without wrecking his computer. I recommend to use another browser. If not possible, use virtualization to install IE9. Hyper-V would make that possible if you had win8 pro and another windows license. Or VMware player.

Have you tried to use Compatibility mode Button on IE10 for your Website? You can find the button next to Address Bar of IE10. It will look like broken paper

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

I have accepted the fact that only IE 10 (both flavors) are the only versions of IE that run in Windows 8.  I've messed with the compatibility mode to make it work with my browser app.

Thanks

Could you please advise exactly how it messed? Browser crashing? or anything else?

Mostly scroll bars missing and content missing from pages.  Changing browser mode to IE9 seemed to fix it.  It's not a problem with the browser so much as it is a problem with the application being limited to only working in IE8 and IE9.  IE10 works fine in Windows 8 for most websites.  It's just this specific EMR application that does not.
