  • Simple HTML WebFOCUS reports can be viewed on any browser.
  • Drill-down links do not work when using an embedded PDF viewer available in some browser versions. Refer to the browser's configuration information on how to change the Application Options settings for the relevant content types so that the browser will automatically use Adobe Reader.
  • Acrobat Reader DC is certified, and Adobe XI and Adobe X are supported.
  • For information on certain conditions that can force Internet Explorer to display pages in a document mode different from the one specified in the webpage, see Internet Explorer Browser Document Compatibility.
  • For information on the expected behavior of Internet Explorer (32-bit) on a Windows x64 machine, see the Microsoft TechNet article Run IE 32bit on Windows 10 X64.
  • Support for presenting images and graphs in HTML, DHTML, and DHTML compound reports is provided using an image embedding facility based on the client browser. Output generated by Internet Explorer browsers or in scenarios where the browser is unknown (such as when distributed by ReportCaster) supports image inclusion through the creation of a web archive file (.mht). For all other browsers, images are base64 encoded within the generated .htm file.
  • If you are using Internet Explorer® 11 on a Windows® 2012 R2 OS and you attempt to run an object (such as a report or chart in InfoAssist), Internet Explorer 11 opens it in a new window instead of targeting the object to a specific frame. For example, in InfoAssist, the New Window Runtime opens a new browser window that shows the running image, which then replaces that page with the output. Since Internet Explorer 11 does not allow the replacement of that window, it opens a new window instead. This browser limitation can be remedied by an administrator.
