Mitigating IE6 Compatibility Issues when migrating to Windows 7

In this video I demonstrate how vWorkspace seamlessly redirects specific (defined by IT via GPO) URLs from the local IE8 or IE9 Browser to IE6.  If a user browses to a the site that does not require IE6, they are redirected back to their local IE browser.

Because IE6 is running in its native operating system (Server 2003 R2 Terminal Server), this is completely legal, in accordance with the Microsoft EULA and supported and endorsed by Microsoft and Quest.

There is no application virtualization going on here, just application presentation.  As you know, RemoteApp didn’t exist on 2003 R2 Terminal Server, so the seamless Windows engine here is Quest vWorkspace.

Using this, customers can continue their Win7 migrations and can deal with remediating their IE6 applications on a separate timeline and/or separate project.
