I have been using IE 8 to connect to VPN for one of our Client... When you first time go to the URL to Connect to VPN it Installs the Microsoft Forefront UAF Client Components and it works perfectly fine on IE 8... I have recently installed Windows 8 and for unknown reasons when I go to the same VPN site it doesn't Install the Microsoft Forefront Client Components even though I have Enabled all ActiveX and Java related options.

Hello Shakeel,

Thank you for the feedback. To help us better understand the issue you are seeing will you please answer the following questions.

1)    Are you visiting a website\webpage when you do not see the prompt to install the Microsoft Forefront client?
If you had a screenshot or a URL we could access it would speed up our investigation of the issue.
2)    Which version of IE 11 are you running?
Can you please attach a screen shot of IE version and build number listed in the Help|About dialogue?
3)    When visiting a webpage that should install the VPN software can you open the F12 developer tools and under Emulation change the Document mode to IE 8 or 9. Does this allow the control to install?
4)    Internet Explorer 11 ships with Enhanced Protected Mode enabled on the desktop browser. If you disable Enhanced Protected Mode (found under Internet Options-> Advanced->Security) and then load the webpage are you now able to install\run the VPN software?

Best regards,
The Internet Explorer Team
