    We have had problems with Moodle - but we are only using 1.8.3

    Switching into compatibilty more does the trick though.

    I thought it was on WSUS under the new catagory of Internet Explorer 8 liked IE7 is? As for us, no move yet, have some hardware that doesn't like it such as the BCM Phone System didn't like IE8 on the laptop the other day (Then again it doesn't like Java newer than about 4 years ago!)

    I saw the IE8 dynamic installer in WSUS today so it is there, just under a seporate product like IE7 as john said above.

    IE8?! Haven't even thought about moving up to 7 yet, after having bad experiences with it on my machine.

    IE8 dynamic installer if you enable the category and sync the server nothing comes down. IE8 hasn't been released to general WSUS usage yet as it doesn't come down in any supported categories XP/2003/2008. Well as far as I can tell.


    EDIT

    July 2009 apparently

    I've installed it on a few machines to test, but I'm waiting for my WU server to get it before I roll it out to everyone. That will give me time to play with the GPO settings.

    IE8: better than some!

    Tried out on a few machines here. No problems at all including SIMS is fine with it. At this stage it doesn't confer enough advantages to rush to roll it out to all but compared to some previous upgrades it seems a smooth process.

    I've started to deploy it on new images and so far so good. Just make sure you configure the new available policies first and deployment should go smoothly.

    I've disabled the Favourites bar by GPO in IE8 so it looks pretty much like IE7. I think users changing from IE7 to IE8 shouldn't have any significant problems. IE6 to IE8 however would be a big change.

    I've also included IE8 in the latest Logistix Post XP SP3 Pack May 2009. Microsoft haven't released IE8 to WSUS as yet, however from memory, IE7 became available by enabling Update Rollups in WSUS. I suspect this'll be the same for IE8 too.

    I don't suppose you have the IE8 .adm file do you? ABout to start searching but if you have a link it would save some time.

    When you install IE8, the updated template can be found in C:\Windows\Inf

    You can copy this to your server or alternatively, install IE8 on Windows Server.

    Is this an original .adm or is it one of those new fangled admx files?

    Going to download now to grab the file and then remove methinks.

    It is a the real deal, a proper ADM file. You can overwrite the existing ADM on your server. This makes it compatible with IE6, IE7 and IE8.

    Anyone tried accessing the RMMC from IE8 yet?

    What does IE8 offer over IE7 anyway?
