Using the SCOM Web Console in Windows 10

If you’ve jumped in and installed Windows 10…(like me) then you might be aware that the new Microsoft Edge Browser isn’t compatible with Silverlight (at least not yet anyway). So you’ll be out of luck using Edge with the SCOM Web Console.

If you attempt to launch the Web Console using Microsoft Edge then you’ll get an error like this one:

Edge Not Silverlight Compatible
















However, Windows 10 still comes with Internet Explorer 11, so you can click Start, type in “Internet Explorer” and load that browser which of course still supports Silverlight.

Optionally if you want to always have Edge revert to opening your Web Console Address in IE11 you could use Enterprise Mode. Here’s a useful article that describes how to use IE 11 in situations like this: Technet.
