In January and February, we provided information about Relativity’s compatibility with the latest Microsoft releases. In February’s post, we referenced the upcoming release of Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7, which is now available.
Based on Relativity’s compatibility with the version of IE10 that came with Windows 8, we anticipated that Relativity would be compatible with IE10 for Windows 7. Now that we’ve been able to conduct thorough testing, we have determined that Relativity is not compatible with IE10 for Windows 7. We are now targeting to support this version of IE10 in a patch release by mid-2013.
As of today, IE10 for Windows 7 will only be automatically installed if you had downloaded the preview version. In the coming weeks, as IE10 for Windows 7 stabilizes, the automatic installation will expand to more users. If IE10 has not already been installed, users outside of managed environments can download this toolkit from the Microsoft website to prevent automatic installation. According to Microsoft, environments using an update management solution—such as Windows Server Update Services or Systems Management Server 2003—do not need to deploy the toolkit, as these solutions can be used to manage deployment of IE10 for Windows 7.
Alternatively, if IE10 has been installed, it can be reverted to IE9 via the control panel. Check out this page for more information.
