Microsoft Edge compatibility issues with Exceed TurboX

Native Client Launcher: Users may experience browser crashes and confusing messages when launching profiles using the ETX Native Client Launcher and Microsoft Edge. Certified browsers for the ETX native client are Internet Explorer 9 or later, Firefox and Chrome.

Java Client Launcher: Microsoft Edge does not support Java plugins, so the ETX Java Client Launcher is not supported in the Edge browser. Supported browsers for the Java Client Launcher are Internet Explorer 9 or later, and Firefox.

Microsoft Edge compatibility with HostExplorer Web Deployment

HostExplorer Web to Host and Deployment Wizard are not compatible with Microsoft Edge due to Microsoft blocking Java and ActiveX controls in their latest browser.

For Java deployments, customers must use a Java-enabled browser such as Internet Explorer 9 or later as well as Firefox. ActiveX deployments require Internet Explorer 9 or later, and must be additionally configured to run ActiveX controls.
