Symptoms

After installing patch OBIEE 11.1.1.7.140527, Internet Explorer 11 returns an 'unsupported browser error" when launching Enterprise Manager using basic url.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Use Internet Explorer 11.
  2. Go to the Enterprise Manager URL:
    http://machine.domain:7001/em
  3. You will receive a message stating
     Message from webpage
    <!> You are using an unsupported browser. The supported browsers
    are Internet Explorer 7 and higher, Firefox 2.0.0.2 and higher, Safari 3.1.2 and higher, and Google Chrome 1.0 or higher.
  4. If you click on [OK] you see the Spinning "O" with the message "Loading..." but it never completes.
  5. If you then re-enter the URL, you will get the login page, but the "Login" button does nothing.
  6. Please note that other products ( i.e. BIP, Analytic and Weblogic) are all working fine under IE 11 except for the EM Console.
