This is to notify all Division of IT staff and our Local Support Partners that Division of IT specialists will be performing a scheduled update to Internet Explorer (IE) 11 to all Division of IT managed workstations from 7:00–8:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 14, 2018.
This update will occur for all existing and future installations of Windows 7. Windows 10 machines will not be affected as IE 11 is preinstalled by default in all Windows 10 versions.
IE versions below 11 were classified as end-of-life as of January 12, 2016 and have not received security updates since that date. Due to this, many non-GW websites are blocking access to IE versions below 11. See this page for more information: https://www.microsoft.com/en-
Additionally, access to Enterprise Apps has been transitioned to the Published Enterprise Apps (DaaS) platform, removing the majority of the impact to upgrading to IE 11.
Impact to users: Members of the GW community will be prompted to restart their computers after installation of the update.
We thank you for your patience and apologize for any inconvenience.
