Hi Guys

I have created a website for IE9 and upwards. The website that is hosted, is hosted locally on Windows Server 2003. The browser that is running on Server 2003 is, IE7 and it is running IIS6.

My problem that I have is, when I open the website on the client computer the website is using the browser from the server (IE7) instead of the browser (IE9, IE10) on the clients computer.

How can the issue be solved so that the website can open in the browser of the clients computer instead of the browser on the server?

I have read the following articles and followed the steps, but I still get the same problem.[^][^]

Are you kidding ? if you have hosted your application on IIS and you are using URL to open your ASP.NET application on client computer then the browser is client's browser.

If you have doubt then you can add this[^] javascript in your page and open on client end. it will display your browser information.

I hope you findout exact cause of your problem.

Hi @amitgajjar. I opened the website on the client end and it's displaying IE7.. Thanks for your post.. :-)

in that case your client computer have IE7. check Menu in your browser from Help > About Internet Explorer. if it is IE7 then you need to upgrade it to IE9. At max you can give an alert message for upgrading browser if it is not IE9.

On the client side, IE9 is installed. On the server 2003 where the website is hosted, IE7 is installed. With Server 2003, Internet Explorer can only be upgraded to IE8..

open IE9 browser of client computer. then open the URL. it should work fine. Please read my Solution and implement javascript if you want to verify which version of IE is running when executing your application.

How are you so sure about it.
Check client's browser, either it is in IE7 or the code you have written is not optimized for IE9.

What you are saying is absurd. It can only be possible, if you are accessing server from client machine as virtual desktop and open server browser.
