Disable IE10 compatibility view

Hi All,

I'm running a Windows 2008 R2 Citrix server to present a website to my users.

The site requires compatibility view to be disabled as it runs scripts within itself.

When users open up the site which is published it keeps running as "IE10 Compatible View".

Tried using GPO's within my 2008 R2 AD to disable Compatibility View but still doesn't work.

Does anyone know registry keys that can be applied to the server to disable it ?

This is done via current user in the registry:

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\BrowserEmulation" /f /v AllSitesCompatibilityMode /t REG_DWORD /d "0"
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\BrowserEmulation" /f /v IntranetCompatibilityMode /t REG_DWORD /d "1"

There is also a blog on a GPO approach:
Computer Configuration->Administrative Templates->Windows Components->Internet Explorer->Compatibility View->Use Policy List of Internet Explorer 7 sites does work, it’s just not that clear. Don’t forget to reboot your computer to apply the policy.
