PowerSCADA Expert Runtime shows "Browser not supported" for web pages such as ENM Monitoring and Control

Issue
Displaying webpages such as Live View, ENM Configuration, ENM Monitoring and Diagnostics, etc...in PowerSCADA Expert Runtime shows "Browser not supported". This happens even when ENM works on all the other browsers by itself without being integrated in Scada.



Product Line
PowerSCADA Expert 8.x
Event Nofication Module 8.3.x

Environment 
PowerSCADA Expert Runtime

Cause
The default emulation mode Citect Runtime utilizes may not be compatible with the requested webpage.

Resolution 
*Warning: This article contains information about editing the registry. Improper changes to the registry can permanently damage the operating system. Always backup the registry before making any changes.*

Microsoft provides the ability to configure the emulation mode of applications. In this case, we will modify the emulation mode for citect32.exe.

Add the missing entry in the registry using the steps below:
- Open the Windows registry editor (Start>Run>regedit)
- Browse to the following location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MAIN\FeatureControl\FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION 



- For ENM webpages, add a DWORD (32-bit) Value of "citect32.exe" (if missing), with a value of 2AF8 hex (11000 dec).

- Compile and Run the project again to make sure this resolved the issue.
