    Problem with IE7 already... no supprise

    Hey
    WE have just started to roll out IE7 to a few machines to see how it runs.. but we have encounted a few problems already, the fact with tabbed browsing... you go to say hotmail and 9 times out of 10 and it will just sit and try to load the page but never does. Any one else had this problem?

    Re: Problem with IE7 already... no supprise

    At last I managed to get hands on with our Admin PC today - to sort the SIMS problem out I reported earlier in another topic http://www.edugeek.net/index.php?nam...ewtopic&t=4868 (thanks for the help on that one Phil Neal and Ric it worked a treat) - then I ran Windows update and discovered a total of 65 updates waiting - including the IE7 download. Mindful of earlire comments relating to IE7 and SIMS I left that particular update unopened!

    @specktecky: Not sure if this is the best place to mention this but there is an ADM template knocking about on the web that allows you to prevent IE7 from downloading via Windows Update/Microsoft Update.

    "Maybe worthwhile informing people not to upgrade their browser to

    Internet Explorer version 7 as reports will not display properly in FFT

    online or RAISEonline. This is because both these sites use Microsoft

    Reporting Services and as yet this does not fully support IE7".

    Even the reports? Which ones do you use? Be interesting to get some feedback from more people see if the advice can be substantiated. I'm not in a rush to find out just yet, I'll do a Siddhartha 'watch, wait and think'.

    Go and log in with your DFES number and password as usual. Generate a report e.g. KS4 Overview.
    In IE6 you can export your report to Excel, don't seem it be able to do this is with IE7, also with IE7 you can't scroll down to the bottom of the page, it cuts it off.
    Let me know what you find.
    Thanks

    Anybody come across this problem? Is it talking about users being able to change home page despite GP settings? http://www.theregister.co.uk/2006/11...aged_desktops/

    Re: Problem with IE7 already... no supprise

    Not noticed any problems yet although I only rolled it out at the end of last week.

    Worth noting was one comment that I received about how much the kids seem to love IE7. Not exactly sure why this is - probably because it's shiny and new - but if it engages the kids more it must be good!

    Yes, the kids are able to change their home pages, but only within their own profiles.

    As long as you use a GP to set the home page and delete cached copies of roaming profiles you will be ok.

    Re: Problem with IE7 already... no supprise

    Somebody just confirm for me the GPO setting to stop the first run is:
    User config > Admin Templates > Windows Components >Internet Explorer > Prevent performance of First Run Customize Settings > Enabled > Go directly to home page.

    Mine has had plenty of time filter through and still not working.

    Any ideas?
