To clarify the supported versions, from Common Installer 7.5.62, Internet Explorer 7 and 8 are supported. Version 6 support was dropped in 7.5.62.
Apologies that the Common Installer release notes do not state which browsers are supported, I will look to have that added to the next Common Installer release notes.
I have not been able to get the Common Installer to work with Internet Explorer 9, but if someone else has, then information on how that was done would be very useful.
I have tried this with -serveronly option only, it didn't work.
I believe, if popup blocker is enabled, it will throw the message stating popup blocker should be disabled.
Anyways, I have done this installation using silent image; it worked.
Just wanted to verify if IE9 is not supported with the latest installer. From Tony's update, it seems it is not supported.
P.S. Even I think, Firefox is indeed a good choice.
Using -serveronly causes the installer to NOT attempt to bring up a Web Browser
on the host where you're running the installation. That's pretty much all it does.
Doing this will cause the installer to provide a URL that needs to be entered into
a browser. If you're getting a message about popup blocker and you don't have
popups allowed, you'll get that message. If you truly have enabled popups and
are getting this error, I'd open a ticket with BMC Technical Support.
I can vouch that using FF and not IE 8 connecting to the "setup.sh -serveronly" broke creating the Agent V3.9.00 image for AIX 7.1.
Specifically in my case, it would not lay down the AIX security libraries for the agent. I pulled my hair out on this one, even modifying the *.ppf files directly, until I reran the image creation connecting with IE 8 - just as a hunch - and walking through the menus to create the image.
I have found using compatibility view button as a next button works
Also check the run as administrator check box in the setup properties page.
Also Popup blocker needs to be disabled.
A Even Easier why of getting around this issue is running the exe -serveronly in cmd line.
After a while you prompted with popup with a url and ip.
Above will start a web service which you can run in a working browser on a remote machine, thus you are running the intaller remotley.
Once done click ok and the service stops.
