A client just received a new HP PC and obviously it is preinstalled with Windows 8.1 64bit (standard)
We need to run IE8 because the cussent version of Opera doesn't accept anything more recent
Unfortunately IE8 won't install on W8.1
We tried setting up Enterprise mode but:
- The "Let users turn on and use Enterprise Mode from the Tools menu option" option wasn't present in the Administrative Template (Computer or User)
- the EntrerpriseMode registry entry didn't cause this option to appear in the IE Tools menu
Is this workaround available to all versions or W8.1 or simply the PRO and Enterprise versions ?
We were able to run a IE8 compatibility mode using the F12/Developer tools but this is far from user friendly
Is there any other way to run a IE11 in IE8 mode ?
