Have some javascript that runs fine when IE is run on the web server itself but when IE is used from a remote PC the javascript does not run at all. All works fine, locally and remotely with Chrome. Are there any settings required in IE ?

That doesn't make any sense.  IE usually blocks javascript when it is loaded in a file with the "file://" protocol which means Not from a web server.  It's a "security precaution".

What error messages are you getting?

No error message at all - just doesn't execute it.

Unfortunately not.

Remote Server hosts website.

Called locally on server - IE8 or Chrome - OK
Called remotely - Chrome - OK
Called remotely - IE10 - JavaScript ignored.

Javascript now does run okay now that I've turned compatibility view OFF.
Trouble now is that visually the site looks terrible !

So how can I run JavaScript in compatibility view ?
