Windows 8 Release Preview and Project Server 2010

Last week Microsoft released the latest preview of Windows 8, the release preview which you can grab from preview.windows.com. Being a fan of the bleeding edge, I downloaded and installed it onto my slate and have been loving it. However, a number of my colleagues reported that they were having issues using Project Server 2010 with the inbuilt desktop version of IE 10, running into ‘This Project Server 2010 feature requires at least Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0’ error messages in parts of PWA including Server Settings and Manage Timesheets.

Project Server 2010 feature requires at least IE 7

Luckily the fix for this is pretty simple and requires you to set the browser mode of IE 10 to run in compatibility mode. To do so, either click on Tools > F12 developer tools in the toolbar, or click on the settings icon and choose F12 developer tools

F12 Developer Tools

This will bring up the developer tools where you can set the compatibility mode of the browser. By default this is set to IE10 mode which is causing the problem.

Browser mode : IE10

 

To change, click on the Browser Mode and change it to be IE10 Compatibility View and instantly you should see the error message disappear and the page render.

Happy Windows 8’ing!!
