Hi all,

I have inherited a network which has 3 Server 2008 R2 terminal servers in a
server farm.

The end users ar complaining about various issues with internet access,
cannot access banking sites, very slow loading and incorrect rendering of
some sites.

Upon checking the servers I discovered they were still running IE9, i
mentioned this to the client contact and he says that the previous support
people had told him that you couldnt run anything newer than IE9 on Server
2008 R2

Now we know this to be not true, so I go to try and upgrade the servers to

Through Windows update it shows that everything is up to date, and no
further updates avialable, there are no hidden updates either.

So I locate the IE 11 offline installer page, downlaod the file, and when I
try to run it on each of the servers in the farm I get a
IE11-xxxxxxxxxx.exe is not a valid win32 application.

I copy the file to another server on the network (server2012) and the file
runs and then say that "this operating system already has a newer version
of internet explorer installed, and stops.

I have trawled through the GPO's that are being applied to the TS's and
there is nothing I can see that would stop IE being installed.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do?
