VBA webbrowser control different Rendering out of vba-project


  • Hi,

    I have problems regarding the IE version with the webbrowser control. I read a lot about possibilities to change the version by changing some registry settings, but only if it is started out of an executable.

    So what to do if I am trying to start it out of an vba macro? Like e.g. excel or much more important CATIA (CAD-System)

    Any help would be very nice

  • Solved:

    A wildcard entry can fix it. Maybe there will be problems in different applications but that is now not important.

    32bit: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION\* = [REG_DWORD] 9000 (Decimal for IE9.0)

    64bit: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION\* = [REG_DWORD] 9000 (Decimal for IE9.0)
