Arrrgh! I think Microsoft has topped themselves this time with lack of documentation on a this one...
We have a domain running 2008 R2 functional level. The domain was around for quite some time and has seen upgrades to DC OS's as well as AD functional level.
We have a group policy central store.
We are trying to push IE settings via GPO (such as proxy and homepage) to IE 10, and after many hours of struggling to get Internet Explorer Maintenance settings to take hold I finally figured out that has been replaced by GP Preferences/Control Panel/Internet Settings.
When I try to create a new policy object there, I only have the options for IE 5,6,7,8. I have been all over the Internet and back... I've tried everything. I've copied the policy admx files from the Server 2008 R2 DC to the central store. I've copied them from my win7 box. I even downloaded a new batch of policy files for 2008R2/Win 7 from here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=6243
Nothing I try will show me any newer version of IE than 8.
I found a MS hotfix addressing this when IE9 was the newest browser but there is no info on a newer hotfix for IE 10 or 11. This is the hotfix article for IE9 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2530309
Does anyone know how to get this working??
