Most enterprises that are moving to Windows 7 are struggling with application compatibility issues, specifically IE8 compatibility for legacy IE6-only applications. Having a virtual IE6 layer helps mitigate that issue, but the end user experience would be greatly improved with the use of Symantec's Browser Selection Object tool.

Here's a silent video that shows what the end user experience is like with the Browser Selection Object in place.


  • IE6 virtual layer (very easy to create with the published LDFs on the Connect site)
  • Browser Selection Object tool installed

URLs used:

End user experiences/use cases covered in the video:

  • User launches native IE8 and browses to an IE6-only URL
  • User attempts to browse a non-IE6 only URL from IE6
