    IE 8 - Anyone taken the plunge yet

    I'm thinking about doing it in the Summer along with my Office 2k7 SP2 deployment.

    Anyone found any issues with it yet/ Programs that no longer work (I'm thinking Clicker 5).

    Cheers, Ben

    Yeap, we're IE8 now. Everything seems to work fine so far. Have not tested clicker though but thats in another of the schools that I deal with. Is it usually a bit iffy browser wise?

    All of the IT Staff use it here now with no issues, and we have deployed it to a few smaller rooms with no problems.

    As we wont be re-imaging the machines now until the big holiday we probably will just wait until then before going site wide.

    Is it available via WSUS?

    Got it running at home and on work PC, been impressed with the speed of it compared with IE7.

    It's not on WSUS yet just Windows Update. I'm using it on my desktop to test and i've had no issues so far but I haven't tested for issues with SIMS yet.

    Just uninstalled it and went back to IE7 as there are big issues with WebDAV and users using Moodle not getting the 'explorer' type view, but the FTP one when they should.

    We're ignoring it, As Windows 7 is on the horizon we don't see the point in deploying a major update to XP that doesn't really offer us much.
    We'd only end up disabling most of the new features anyway, i.e inprivate mode and the accelerators. Not to mention we'd probably just run it in IE7 compatiblity mode anyway at this stage as the web and various applications that use IE haven't really matured to IE8 standards mode.
    It just seems a lot of work for so little gain at this stage. It offers little to no benefit to our users at this time.

    Has anyone got a link to the ADMs for IE8? I tried installing a set that I downloaded from somewhere, but it messed up the GPO structure, instead of all the policy settings being listed in a nice folder called IE8, it lists all the settings in the root of the GPO!

    Just grab them from the c:\windows\inf folder on a machine that you have installed IE8 on (assuming your still on xp)

    yeh i tried it mate but for some reason it wouldn't open up the link editor in IE7 and it works fine in IE8. It opened up the Image editor and all the other pop ups just not the links editor thingy. Weirdddd
