Internet Explorer 8 Not Fully Compatible with WebCT

This news item expired April 30, 2009. It may contain out-of-date information.
The new Internet Explorer 8 browser, scheduled to be released this weekend (April 17-19), is not compatible with WebCT GOLD. We recommend that you DO NOT install or upgrade to this version as it does not work with WebCT GOLD and may be difficult to uninstall. If your browser prompts you for an automatic upgrade to IE 8, do not accept this upgrade. If you have your IE browser set to automatically accept updates, you can change the setting to not automatically accept updates. To do so, go to Tools-->Internet Options-->Advanced Tab. Make sure "Automatically check for Internet Explorer updates" is NOT checked. If you already have installed IE 8 and have problems accessing WebCT information, you have two options: -- Click the Compatibility View toolbar button to display the website as viewed in Internet Explorer 7. -- Uninstall IE 8. More information on IE 8 is available at: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/support/faq.aspx
