IE 10 Issues with ASP.Net?
« on: March 29, 2019, 01:23:25 AM »
Has anyone had any problems where a website behaves differently with Microsoft Internet Explorer 10?  I got a call from someone who said that he could not use a drop-down window on a web page I manage after he upgraded to Internet Explorer 10 and he did not have any problems before.

If my memory serves me, it is not possible to have two versions of IE on a computer (which is what I would like to do to test this).  Is that right?

Also, is it possible to uninstall and reinstall Internet Explorer?

It is an ASP.NET application.  In order for me to debug what is going on, I will have to recreate the error.  Currently, I do not have IE 10 on my computer.  I have IE 9 and I cannot recreate the error with IE 9. 

I am currently in the middle of another project.  So this is why I need to know if I can have two versions of the browser on my computer at the same time.

This forum is provided for community support of Lunarpages customers. I see your post is on at least 6 other sites. Are you a Lunarpages customer?

Update: I see you have removed all but one of the other posts, which date back 6 or more years. Even though it's not directly a Lunarpages hosting question, how to test on multiple versions of IE on one computer is an interesting question with implications for web developers, so this thread has not been removed as spam.

A partial answer is that Microsoft deliberately and illegally integrated IE deeply into the operating system, so that it could not be pulled out and be replaced by a Third Party product (e.g., Firefox or Chrome). This was to screw EU regulators in their antitrust action. Although fortunately it is possible to install someone else's browser, it's impossible to remove IE (and presumably its replacement, Edge) and as a side effect, you can't install multiple versions on one machine. So, buy yourself another PC (and another Windows license, for a different version) if you want to work on multiple IE versions.
