As I was surfing around the web using my Windows 8 machine, I noticed a few problems with some of my websites. After poking around a bit I realized that the symptoms I was seeing were pretty much the same as the iOS Safari WebView problem I discovered previously. And sure enough... it's the browser capability files again. More info available on Scott Hanselman's blog.

You really should go and read up on the post, but in summary. If you run a ASP.Net webserver, you really should install these patches like RIGHT NOW so that users on IE10 will not experience any problems.

They should be up on Windows Update, but better safe than sorry.

If you don't have control of the server and can only upload files to your web application's folder, download this file from Scott's site. In the zip you'll find a projects/net[version] folder, along with some *.browser files. Copy the appropriate file to an app_browser folder in the root of your website and you'll be fine. Note that ASP.Net 3.0/3.5 is consider to be running on ASP.Net 2.0.


Note that you can Post As GUEST as well.
