We have a basic intranet site featuring links to documents on our Document Management Service using local paths (note - this is best way I've found to ensure no credentials are prompted for).
The links, once published look something like... file:///x:/folder/file.doc
The site is in the local intranet zone and in Windows 7 everything works fine in both IE10 and IE11 but IE11 on Windows 8 won't let me open the links. When clicked, the icon on the IE tab spins indefinitely.
The odd thing is that if I copy the shortcut and paste it into the address bar, it works.
Is there something else in Windows 8 that needs enabling/disabling to get links to local paths to work on click?
