    IE10 proxy problem

    We are starting to create our images for the summer holiday and thought about putting IE 10 on the machines.

    My technician has come to test IE10 with a test student account and found that its not importing any internet explorer settings. I have done a bit of research on the net to see what people are suggesting. I have seen that the internet explorer settings in Group Policy on my machine are missing as i have installed IE10, looks like ill be reverting back to IE9 and most of the DC servers will be too. Others say you need to install RSAT on a windows 8 or 2012 server for this to work or create a registry entry to import the settings.

    Has anyone else gone down this route yet? or is it best to stay clear of IE10 for now?

    We have done it with a 2012 Server, we have done this to staff only. But I would avoid IE10 to be honest, GPP IE settings is similar to GPP Printers, it will work 99% of the time, but not always.

    Just to check, are you looking under Group Policy Preferences? As that's where you do all your IE settings for IE now, they did indeed remove the branch from where it used to be:

    Its much easier just to keep IE9, I uninstalled 10 after I found out they removed the group policy.

    Ah, they have changed it to do it that way now, rather than through IEM. Oh well, looks like ill be sticking with IE9 for a while.

    I've not got IE10 listed. Which files do I need to get access to the IE10 settings?

    Thanks.

    to have IE10 listed you need a W* computer with RSAT on or a Server 2012. Or you could hack the XML

    Yeah, Microsoft's official line if you don't have a 2012 DC (and I don't know many people that do yet) is to install RSAT on a Windows 8 computer to do it.

    Hacking the xml is unsupported, but a lot of people have reported success with it:

    Thanks guys. I've only got a few teacher laptops with Win8 and they logon using a local account so no need for the GP. I was thinking about the times when I use the laptop with a domain account but that's once in a blue moon anyway.

    Anyone know the reg key IE10 uses for it's proxy setting? I expect it's changed from IE9.

    Those saying they'll revert to IE9 - is that not like saying "oh dear, something's different in Windows 7, lets use XP instead"?

    Surely when you update, you update the way you manage them also?

    But if 2008r2 is still being supported by MS, and it is as simple as changing a number in an xml file then why are MS forcing us to use RSAT / W8 / server 2013 (EDIT 2012).

    I would advise you revert back, then you can use IEM while you configure IE10 to use GPP.

    As oppose to trying to fix IE10 on the fly, once you have IE9 working with GPP then you can move to IE10 seamlessly. Why wouldn't you take that approach?

    I'll put it slightly differently.

    Google has released 15 new versions since IE 9 final was released. Mozilla Firefox has released 18 new versions. Not just point releases either, full releases.

    And you want to continue to use a browser that was released March 2011. Just seems a bit backwards to me is all...
