I have just finished setting up a install of on iis6 windows 2003 server.


The problem i am getting is if any user using IE 8 browsers to the site, IE shuts down and the help box showing what a DEP exception is.


Can any one help or suggest how to make the site IE8 friendly?

BE is already IE8 friendly. It sounds to me like you've got an issue with your IIS6/Win2K3. Can you post a link to your blog/site so I can see if it happens to me and possibly look for some clues?

Thansk for the quick response MGD.


After trying it on a winde range of machines running IE 8 and older ones, we only found 2 ie 8 machines having the issue. the rest seemed fine.

I am going to reinstall the ones showing the issue and then i will post some feed back here.


Thanks alot
