Is it possible to script the actions that are performed in RIES?
We recently upgraded from IE7 to IE8. Since the upgrade it is no longer
possible to set our company's intranet site (http://mijnfokus.nl
) as the
standard homepage. If this website is defined as the homepage then IE reports
that the website is not available, if we then click on refresh or the
homepage button the website is displayed without any problems. We don't have
this issue if we set other websites (such as google or msn) as homepage.
We have been able to fix this issue for certain users by using RIES. However
we have a restrictive policy which prevents access to the advanced tab.
Besides this, we would like to automate the process so that users are not
confronted with extra actions that they will have to perform.
Users do not have administrator privilges so the provided fixit does not
work for them. Running RIES as an administrator only solves the problem for
the administrator who runs it. We have also tried exporting HKCU...Internet
Explorer\Main from a user where the problem has been solved and importing it
to a problem user's HKCU but this does not help either.
It seems to us that the best option would be to script the actions carried
out in RIES so that they can be run in a login script (we have a VB
script) or maybe to start IE8 up with a command line option to force the
reset. Can you tell me if this is possible and how we can do this?
Thanks in advance,
