IE8 Compatibility RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    I have a simple question: Is MS CRM 4 fully compatible with Internet Explorer 8 ? If so is it supported?

    I'm sorry I wasn't able to find this answer on any Dynamics website / blog... The "White Papers" & "Implementation Guide" have not been updated since IE8 was released so they say:

    "the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Web client requires one of the following Internet Explorer Web browser versions:

    ·         Internet Explorer 6 with SP1

    ·         Internet Explorer 7 "



    Thanks in advance.

  • Yes, as I understand it.  IE 8 is fully released so should be a supported browser for CRM.  Please feel free to correct this post if incorrect.

  • Hi and thanks for you answers!
    I tested CRM/IE8 as well without having big problems.

    The thing is I am looking for an official publication from Microsoft saying IE8 is fully supported so I can deploy IE8 in my company.
    Unfortunately I can't find it anywhere even in CRM documentation...

    I'll let you know if I find something.

  • Hi again,

    This morning I tried again and I finally found several blog quoting MS team:

    We’re thrilled to have IE8 in market and released. During the past 12 months we have worked closely with the IE team and Dynamics CRM has been one of the key “test products” for the IE team when working through their validation and tests. During the process we naturally identified issues and resolution to those were vigorously pursued and implemented. At this point we only have 1 known issue and we’re happy to be able to state that IE8 is an officially supporter browser for Dynamics CRM 4.0. We expect the Implementation Guide to be updated in April 2009 to reflect this supported status for IE8.”

    Here are the two main blogs where I foung this piece of information:

    Thanks!

  • I have an extra question just because I am curious and maybe it could help someone else

    => do you know if CRM 3 is officially compatible with IE8?

    Thanks.
