Internet Explorer 8 breaks Advanced Admin Console
Internet Explorer 8 is currently being pushed to Windows Home Servers around the world. Unfortunately Advanced Admin Console will no longer work when IE8 is installed. I’m 99.9% sure that this is a bug in IE8 and I’ve already spent a lot of time to find a workaround to the problem. However, it seems there’s no way to make it work.
I have updated the Advanced Admin Console addin to version 0.4.4 0.4.5 Beta. With the new version installed, the Home Server Console will no longer crash when you click on an administrative item in Advanced Admin Console. Instead, a message will be displayed when IE8 or higher is detected.
To make it clear:
PLEASE DO NOT INSTALL Internet Explorer 8 on your Windows Home Server if you plan to use Advanced Admin Console.
Download Advanced Admin Console AddIn Version 0.4.4 0.4.5 Beta.
UPDATE: I’ve just released version 0.4.5 Beta. Version 0.4.4 did not display the IE8 incompatibility message in the correct language.
Important: Before installing the new release, please UNINSTALL any previous version!
