IE8 is the preinstalled browser on Windows Server 2008 R2. Its just there.
But ist no longer supported by Microsoft. They recommend to upgrade to IE 11.

dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:Internet-Explorer-Optional-amd64

Open in new window

on an elevated command prompt (run as administrator)
