allow cd rom on compatible list
We run win 7 and ie9.
We have an older cd rom that has html files on, ie9 can't handle them and just gives blank window. I know it ok in ie 8. Vendor has said we have to use compatability mode in ie.
How do i add D:\content to the comp list. it only seems to want http address.

couldnt you just copy it to a server?

I would do what Sted said and copy the files to an (internal) web server. By default, IE9 displays intranet sites in IE8 compatibility mode.

trouble is the main part of the software is an exe file.
Its one of these flash based book systems that allows you to open pdf and html resources.
How would a web server handle the exe.

I'd set the various advanced settings using Group Policy preferences.
FYI: You need this hotfix on the PC that is creating (or maybe just editing too, not sure) the Group Policy Object if you want the GPP's to apply to IE9.

theres a policy that i've set locally for testing that works.
"Turn On Internet Explorer 7 Standards Mode"
If enabled it works.
however i not very good on web stuff. what impact would it have if this setting was applied accross the site. Would we get other issues?
i dont want a situation where i fix one thing for a few users yet break more things for every one.
Basically do i need to be aware of anythink using this standards mode?

Another option would be to add the line shown in red below to each HTML file on the CD-ROM (make sure it is placed straight after the <head> tag). This will force IE9 to render the page in the same way IE7 would.
