I have a Windows 7 computer with IE11 installed and when I go to the rdweb page of my server I can log in but instead of seeing the RemoteApps I get a Browser Not Supported error message.  I already made the change to the RDweb server in IIS to default to "compatibility view" settings and manually changed them at the computer.  I have other computers with the exact same settings that have no issue connecting.  What could the issue be?

Might be other computers having IE 8 or 9

Its compatibility issue in case of IE 10 and 11
Please enable compatibility view settings in GPO (use policy list of internet explorer 7 sites) and add RDWeb url there under below path
Computer configuration\administrative templates\windows components\internet explorer\compatibility view

Apply this GPO to all computers that having IE 10 and 11 deployed

All other computers are same image.  compatibility mode does not correct the issue.  I also have IIS on the server web page configured for compatible IE9 too.

Hello!

It is so that IE 11 is not compatible with RemoteApps so you get this link helpful

http://www.blackforce.co.uk/2013/10/24/rds-2008-browser-not-supported-ie10-ie11 

You can also read more on this page at Microsoft:

You will also find the link that I mention above this, hope it can help you.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

I've already done the steps in both of those links.  I have over fifty computers that are the exact same hardware and software specs and they all work correctly.  I think it's may be something with the user profile but I'm not sure where to look.

Hello again!

I would probably do as such to reinstall the client and then test again. It sounds as if it is the client. It is probably faster to reinstall than to troubleshoot. If that does not work, I'd probably deselect the profile and reboot.

This will save time for you, debug only takes unnecessary time. As to the other clients are going well.

Regards
Johan
