In my previous article I talked about the recent launch of the new Internet Explorer 9 Beta. There are a couple of things I forgot to mention and I want to bring them along in this post for further clarification:
1. Microsoft Dynamics GP is currently NOT supported with Internet Explorer 9 Beta. If you decide to install IE9 Beta, do so in a test environment, not in production as you will not be able to receive support should you have any issues.
2. Internet Explorer 9 Beta will not be made compatible with Windows XP. The new Microsoft browser will run on Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 2003, and Windows 2008, but no plans for a Windows XP version.
3. You will continue to need the Microsoft Office Web Components to run the metrics on the home page, even with IE9 Beta.
Nonetheless, I have to say that my experience so far with the new browser and Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 and Dynamics GP 10.0 has been very satisfactory. The home page seems to load faster and the metrics display much faster.
Until next post!
