Description

VBScript does not work any more with IE11 preivew on Windows 7 (64bit).
IE11 preview seems to become Firefox or some other browsers. All Vbscripts are ignored.

If you access to the following urls with IE 9 or with IE10, you will see vbscripts are working well in those sites.

But if you access with IE11 preview on Windows 7, you will see vbscripts stop.

Thank you for your feedback. We were able to reproduce the issue and are already aware of the issue. Change the x-ua to <meta http-equiv="x-ua-compatible" content="IE=10"> in order to get vbscript to work.

Best regards,

The Internet Explorer Team

With IE11 on Windows 8.1 preview (32bit) as well, VBScript does not work at all in any web sites that use VBScript.
