In a previous post, MS Internet Explorer 11 security update KB2977629 is incompatible with the version of Eclipse that is used by RPE, I described the problems caused by Microsoft Security Update KB2977629 on machines where Internet Explorer 11 is installed.
A solution that worked for us on all the machines we’ve tested is listed below:
- uninstall KB2977629
- install update 2929437 https://support.microsoft.com/kb/2929437 if not already installed
- reinstall KB2977629
Step 2 should not be needed normally since KB2929437 is marked as a dependency of KB2977629 and thus it should be installed by Microsoft Update already.
At the same time Microsoft has released on October 14th the security update MS14-056: Cumulative security update for Internet Explorer. This update seems to address the problems introduced by KB2977629 as its documented on the fix list of the update and confirmed by a number users in the Eclipse Bug 444005
