Just for grins I installed IE8 on a laptop. I knew that the SBS team said that they were working with the IE team on some issues but I wanted to see what they were.
So after installing it we get the “we want you to reenable ActiveX”. Okay I can handle that but it would be nice if Microsoft considered Microsoft secure and reenabled that from the get-go.
Then it needed me to reinstall the control. Okay I can handle that.
But then no matter how often I tried the password it wouldn’t work and it acted like it was making every input lowercase.
Once I put the RWW site into the “compatibility” mode then RWW worked.
But looks like that’s the workaround we’ll have to be doing.
EDIT — it’s more wacked out than I thought. In a RWW session, the input doesn’t recognize the shift key on the keyboard.
