Exchange Management Console & IE9 issue fixed

Finally, today the Exchange team made available a fix to solve the issues when using the Management Console of Exchange 2007 or 2010 in conjunction with Internet Explorer 9.

As you probably know, when using Internet Explorer 9 you can’t close the Exchange Management Console properly as it gives you the error “You must close all dialog boxes before you can close Exchange Management Console” having no dialogs open.

To solve this issue, you had to do the resort to measures like killing the EMC process using Task Manager.

To properly install the hotfix:

  1. Request hotfix ID 2624899 from support here. For a direct download link click here.
  2. Download and install MS11-081 (2586448). You can retrieve this update here.
  3. Install the hotfix ID 2624899.

Microsoft states it expects to incorporate this fix in a future update of Internet Explorer 9.

While releasing a fix for the IE9 issue is great after all these month, I can’t help but wonder why the fix has not been made public.
