    Not sure if this is the right area to post... Need a fix for the following

    When attempting to access Lawson using internet explorer 11 I get the following error message:

    The Lawson Portal does not support this browser: Netscape.

    Use the Portal Installation Guide to determine the system requirements needed for running the Lawson Portal.

     

    here is the site: https://ess.chw.edu/lawson/portal/

    IE 11 isn't certified for Lawson version 9.0.1.9, and may never be for that ESP. I would imagine it would be for a yet-to-be-released ESP 13 or 14, but that's not a guarantee.

    Your title states you're an RN, so I'm not sure how technical you are, but IE 11 has a few differences that make it significantly different than all prior IE versions. One of those differences is that it has a new User Agent signature, that makes it look like Netscape, hence your error.

    Feel free to call me if you have any more questions on this.
    I worked at your location, so I'm familiar with your installation.

    You can get around that by adding X-UA-Compatible meta tag. There are a few ways to handle this: configure your web server to present the pages in the site as the desired browser mode, have an appliance do it, or manually add the meta tag to all html pages.

    In general if you run the IE browser in compatibility mode you can get the page you need to display correctly. Example, using IE10 you can access your portal page then use F12 to see how it renders.


     

    alternately, you may see the 'broken-page' icon in the address bar that will toggle compatibility mode.

     

    That said, you can use:


    as the line to add in the device or web server to force the user's browser to see the pages from Lawson as it were IE9, for versions greater than IE9 they are running.Also, you will need to remove the DOCTYPE declaration to force the pages to use quirks mode.

    You can see how to configure IIS to do that at Microsoft's MSDN site (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/cc8...kID=204319).

    As, always, backup before modifying and test before placing into production.

    When using IE 10 or IE 11 (IE 11 is more stable) go to the website what you try to access, i.e. ess.chw.edu and when you get your error message, then on the toolbar, click 'Tools' > 'Compatibility View Settings' > and click 'add' to add the Lawson portal & close. It will automatically refresh and you are in.

    That is it.

    Sacgirl,
    I had same problem. System Administrator replied to my post here on Lawsonguru with the
    solution that worked for me. In Internet Explorer, click on tools.
    He wrote
    From the login page.. Go to Tools | Compatibility View Settings | Click Add button.
    Page should automatically reload with compatibility mode enabled.
    Or try Tools | Internet Options and delete all files/cookies.
