EDIT+ Internet Explorer 8 and 9 Patch Installation
EDIT+ Users who have recently upgraded the PCs used to access EDIT+ may experience a Browser
Detection error when logging in to EDIT+ or may not be able to send a PEIMS or PET file to TEA once
they are logged in. Note that the upgrades to IE8 or IE9 on your PC may occur without your knowledge,
so if you suddenly experience one of these issues, that is the likely cause. The following instructions will
help you deal with both of these issues.
Browser Detection Error:
Some IE9 Users may receive the following Browser Detection Message when attempting to log into
EDIT+ for the first time after IE9 is installed, or if they had previously been in EDIT+ and were working in
a Prior Year Collection.
If so, you need to set your PC to use Compatibility View Mode, as follows;
In your browser tools settings select the Compatibility View Settings; then check the box to display all
websites in Compatibility view.
Retry logging into EDIT+, then proceed to page 15 and follow the instructions to test whether you can
successfully send a file to TEA. If that test fails, return to page 3 and follow the instructions to install the
Alternate Security Patch.
Unable to Send PEIMS Collection or PET file:
EDIT+ users attempting to send a PEIMS collection file or PET file after upgrading their PCs to Internet
Explorer (IE) versions 8 or 9, and/or upgrading to a 64-bit PC will need to install the patch described
below if their send file attempts are failing or files are hanging in a “Transferring” state.
If the user does NOT see file transferring progress bar, they should navigate to the Progress Monitor page, Abort
file and proceed to the software Download steps below.
Some users may receive the following message;
Users who have the above configuration and have already installed the IE8 trusted site patch and the
.NET client framework 2.0 patches from the EDIT+ software download page and can send files to TEA
without issues do not need to reapply the patch.
TEA has updated the Alternate Security Patch for Microsoft .NET Framework (2.0 and higher) located on
the EDIT+ software download page linked from the home page. The Patch contains two elements, a
trusted sites registry patch which identifies the TEA file servers to the user’s PC security settings as
“trusted” sites, and a specific patch for Microsoft .NET Framework Client for versions 2.0 or higher.
When the user downloads the Patch from the EDIT+ software download page and initiates the
installation process, it will prompt the user for the Internet Explorer level and whether the PC is running
32-bit or 64-bit. It will then install the appropriate versions of the patches. Detailed instructions with
screen shots are included on the following pages to assist users in installing the Patch.
Note: The installer must have administrator rights on the PC in order to execute this Patch. If you do not
have administrator rights, contact your local PC support technician. The patch will need to be installed
on every PC used to send PEIMS collection files or PET files to TEA.
Determine your PC System Level:
Start your Internet Explorer browser, select Help and then select About Internet Explorer to determine
the level of IE you are running and whether it is 64-bit or not. If it is 32-bit there will not be anything
shown after the version.

Using the information gathered in the first step above, select 1 for 32-bit or 2 for 64-bit.

might be because of an automatic Windows Update rollout. The application of a Windows Update
to either IE or to the operating system may then require a re-application of the Edit+ alternate
