Resolve Browser Errors when Using ArcGIS

Introduction

ESRI ArcGIS geographic information software is available to UW departments and employees. See the UW Department-Provided Applications section on the UW Software website for details. ArcGIS requires adding file://windows.uwyo.edu to the trusted sites list in Internet Explorer to enable full scripting capability.

Procedure

  1. Open Internet Explorer (IE) and go to Tools, Internet Options.
