IE11 and Sharepoint 2010 Problems

Surprise Surprise(remember 9 & 2003), IE11 is released and it won’t work with SharePoint 2010 regardless of the version (December 19, 2013). The cause is due to the changes in IE11 compatibility¬†mode (MSDN¬†details).

Initial thoughts are to hard code the version from 8 to 9, (<meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” content=”IE=8″/>)

in the master page and this alleviates some problems(Infopath Forms now work(previous error was: Critical Error: Object doesn’t support this property or method addeventlistener)) but it creates more as well(Users can’t be added to sites(System.InvalidOperationException: Namespace prefix ‘xsd’ is not defined.).

Based upton my trial and error today I would recommend until MS released a CU, the farm running is a 2010 Enterprise with all standard features and items in use.

Add this javascript to the master page just above the body close tag.

<script language=”javascript”>

UserAgentInfo.strBrowser=1; }
