How to access cameras and recorders in Microsoft Edge IE mode on Windows 10 PC

Update in October, 2022: Updated the procedures (Step2 and Step3) for Network Recorder

i-PRO Network Camera and Network Recorder that support Internet Explorer can be accessed via Microsoft Edge IE mode even after the support for Internet Explorer ends in June 2022.  Refer to the following procedures for how to access those devices in IE mode.

 

How to access Network Camera

You can use either of the following two methods to access the camera, depending on your environment.  
As for the browser support before and after June 2022, refer to i-PRO Network Camera browser support after the support for Internet Explorer ends.

Access automatically in IE mode (LAN only) 

 

IP Setting Software version 4.50 or later automatically opens appropriate browsers for each camera in LAN when “Auto” is selected for [Browser selection].

 

Important notice when opening Microsoft Edge in IE mode using IP Setting Software:
IP Setting Software version 4.50 or later creates a Microsoft Edge sitelist file, and changes the reference on the registry* to this sitelist file.
The above change can affect the access to the other web pages in IE mode on the same PC.
For details, contact your system administrator.
*Applicable registry: InternetExplorerIntegrationSiteList(\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Edge)

 

Notes: 

- Microsoft Edge IE mode is not available on Windows 8.1 or earlier PC.
- IP Setting Software may take 75 seconds to open appropriate browsers for each camera.
