Microsoft has discontinued Internet Explorer and no longer offers support for it. The retired, out-of-support Internet Explorer 11 desktop application is scheduled to be permanently disabled through a Microsoft Edge update on certain versions of Windows 10 on February 14, 2023.
Microsoft is urging users to set up IE mode in Microsoft Edge to avoid any potential disruption to their business. The IE mode in Microsoft Edge provides a smooth transition for customers who need to access legacy IE-only websites and applications.
From ACCELQ 6.0, you can trigger runs designed for legacy applications (Applications that open only in Internet Explorer) on Edge browser in IE mode.
To trigger test automation scripts (designed for Internet Explorer) on Edge browser in IE Mode, follow the below steps:
Create a web profile with the below configuration:
"ie.edgepath": "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft\\Edge\\Application\\msedge.exe"
In the test run modal, choose the browser as Internet Explorer and select the web profile created in the previous step.
During the test run execution, you will see the web application under test opening up in the Edge browser in IE mode.
