By Martin Abrahams on Mar 28, 2011
Hi, just a brief note to mention that we released an IRM Desktop last week to provide compatibility with IE9. The new IRM Desktop is compatible with 10g and 11g IRM Servers, and is available via our patch delivery mechanism in the Oracle Support site. Customers can download it from their and distribute it to their users as and when required.
To recap, the latest IRM Desktop supports Microsoft Office from 2000 through 2010 for Office formats and RTF and text, Outlook likewise for sealed email, Adobe 9 and X for PDF, MS IE 7 through 9 for HTML, XML and some image formats, and MS SharePoint 2007 and 2010.
For searching encrypted content, it also supports Windows Explorer Search from XP through Windows 7, Windows Indexing Service on XP and 2003, and SharePoint Indexing Service 2003 and 2008.
UPDATE: A number of people have contacted me to ask how to get hold of the patch kit. If you are an Oracle customer, you can go to support.oracle.com and log in using your customer service id to access patches and knowledge base articles and much more. The IRM patch for IE9 should be found by searching for 10410462. If you use IRM as part of a service run by one of our customers, then the service provider should be making the patch available to you.
