I have IE 8. I checked the "about" in IE to confirm.

The following code is being executed:


This code works fine when executed by Firefox AND it works fine when my colleagues run it with IE8. However, when I run it on my IE8, I get the alert "Your browser is too old."

Could I have had an issue in upgrading my IE? Are there some other methods that could help me troubleshoot?

Not sure what to do. You assistance is appreciated.

The answer:

IE >> Internet Options >> Make sure "Enable native XMLHTTP supoprt" is checked.
