With the release of version 8.8.4 a browser check was established as there were multiple issues due to the fact that some users were using an unsupported browser. The browser check was also requested by many customers and was implemented as a feature. 


If you see this site even though you are using Internet Explorer 9 or higher please check your document compatibility (compatibility view). To do this open the developer tools with the F12 key or select it in the settings over the gear wheel symbol. In the window on the right, the document mode must not be lower than 9. It is recommended to use Edge (Internet Explorer 11).



Internet Explorer 11:




Internet Explorer 10:



Internet Explorer 9:


Please ensure that, after you have made this change, you reopen the Picturepark page again and do not just just refresh the site. Should the behaviour persist or if you still have to change the settings for every new session, please contact your IT department to check if the URL of your Picturepark is possibly loading through domain policy settings in an older compatibility mode. Picturepark does not have any influence over this. You can find further information about Picturepark supported browsers here: https://vit.picturepark.com/Help/en/index.html?browser_compatibility.htm


An indication that your browser loads the site through domain policy settings can be found in the developer tools. You will see a HTML 1203 error with the text "[yourpictureparkdomain] has been configured to run in Compatibility View through Group Policy.". Example in German:

More codes, which due to an incorrect mode are: HTML1200, HTML1201, HTML1202, HTML1203, HTML1204

You can find more information about these codes here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh180764(v=vs.85).aspx



If a link is opened from a Word/Excel or PowerPoint document, the error message will be displayed automatically, because these programs use a "pre-load" of the embedded hyperlink in the IE7 mode, which will be classified as outdated by the browser check. This behavior also appears in Chrome, Opera, Firefox etc. As a workaround you can either copy the link and paste it in the browser manually or save the document as a PDF. We are checking, if this behavior can be changed. This also applies to the Office Connector and the generation of Dropbox Workflow tokens in the PPMC.
