800xA FP4 RevE Update Question
We are in progress of updating system from 800xa FP4 RevD to RevE.
Release notes states that i need to update Internet explorer to ver. 11 is it a MUST?
can it work without updating to IE11?
Can i update to 800xA RevE over SmarClient 2.2 RevC TC3?. (compatibility matrix states 'to be updated' - so nobody knows?)
I've installed RevE already without making 'Extension' and for now besides Find Tool Everything works Fine...
Thanks in Advance for Your Help.
Microsoft is stopping the support of previous IE versions on Jan 14th this year and that is why it is expected that IE version should be updated so that the IE version on your system is suporrted by Microsoft and it you get continuous updates.
For SmartClient I am not sure, would have to check.
For find tool, there is a text in the Feature pack update tool and also in the manual, that it will start working once you load the extensions.
As I understand, the system runs with an older version of IE.
This might seems to work fine, but possibly it gives issues later on for example during the use of other features.
So no problem right now, but if problems start to arise, it is an unsupported configuration by ABB.
Please take that, along with security issues, in consideration.
Starting from Jan 2016, microsoft has ceased the support of IE8, means it will support one IE/operating system even though IE8 supports FP4 Rev E due to non-availability of support for IE8 ABB recommends to install only IE11 for x64 bit operating system and IE9 for x86 operating system.
Note: All plane versions & FP versions starting from 5.1 RevB/C/D and Fp3/4/FP4 RevD are also validated to support IE11.
Till FP4 RevD the SC works for SC2.2 Rev C Ru1 it has worked fine may be for FP4 RevE due compatability they have released a TC.
