Activity Reporter on Windows 7 - Success

Activity Reporter on Windows 7 - Success

(OP)
thread1361-1762640: Activity Reporter

After some playing around I figured out how to make Activity Reporter work on Windows 7 (Or any version for that matter). The issue is not Windows 7 itself, but rather the web browser. For whatever reason, it rejects any browser that's not Internet Explorer 6. To resolve this, just google Internet Explorer 6 Portable and download it. Then startup Activity Reporter and navigate to http://localhost/login.html

Another solution I found is to use a user agent switcher to pretend to be using IE6. I tried this with Chrome but Chrome couldn't render the menu's correctly and a couple of other issues. It may work in other browsers but I have not tested those.

UPDATE:

I discovered a setting to disable the user agent checking so any browser can work! Once you get Activity Reporter open in IE6 go to Configure->Web Server and uncheck the "Check User Agent" check box. After that you can open Activity Reporter in any browser you want. It may still have compatibility issues though.

This is GREAT NEWS i will try it and let you know.
