Building Engines Update: AwareManager JXT and the Retirement of Internet Explorer

Paul Schneider


We wanted to provide our customers with an update relating to the announcement that Microsoft has made with regards to its support and end of life of Internet Explorer and how that impacts the use of AwareManager JXT.  

"Starting on June 15, 2022, Microsoft will no longer support the Internet Explorer 11 desktop application on certain version of Windows 10*.  Customers will be encouraged to move to Microsoft Edge, which provides support for legacy and modern websites and apps." Official information relating to Microsoft's announcement can be found here.

The Microsoft Edge team has also published an article, which can be found here, stating that "IE mode in Microsoft Edge is supported through at least 2029, giving you an eight-year runway to modernize those legacy apps to meet today’s standards."

AwareManager JXT users will continue to have two options to access the database; launching the program through a browser via Microsoft Edge and/or installing a local installation of the database.  Instructions on on how to navigate through each process are outlined below.
