I use Win 7 x64 as my development platform, i Develop on Siebel 188.8.131.52, I use IE 11. I’m heading for trouble thats for sure! 🤣😂
Allthough not perfect / not fully tested yet: this is a nice teaser:
It’s not all simple sailing. One of the big hidden things is that Siebel Tools do not like you start the dedicated client with a /b pointing to the x32 IE 11. I don’t know why… Annoying! It just fails!
Then when you set nothing:
Siebel Web Session
Cannot determine default web browser for current user.
Please set up your web browser properly or use the /B command line argument to specify one.
This annoying thing is what greets you the first many times, until you try the /b – which then does not work.
you then think ah! and surf and surf the web for somebody who’s been in your position – but there’s not much to be found.
Here are the simple step needed to fix the issue:
if there is no http key (folder) create it
in the http key create a UserChoice key (folder)
in the UserChoice key create a String Progid with a value of IE.HTTP
Now the F5 Run will work!!! Yeah!
Note to self and others: the IE.HTTP actually points to the registry entry: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\IE.HTTP
Which in turn points to the x64 version of IE, but a x32 IE is started by Tools…. Go Figure…
