we are working on browser compatability applications and providing browser compatability for IE 9 in Win 7 environment
we are getting the following error message when trying to access the webdynpro application from IE 9 browser in
WIN 7 .
Sorry, your browser/program is not supported by Web Dynpro!
can any one please help on the issue .
you may try to set the user agent string.
This is the user agent string for IE8 is something like
Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1)
This may be done by a user agent switcher, i.e.
(maybe works for IE 9 too)

We had exactly the same issue. When you have a portal which "wrapps" the webdynpro, then you could use the following meta-tag in the header of the portal: meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7"...
Withhin this line of code in your header / head (in the portal you've to put it in the masthead) you can enforce the "compatibility-mode" of the browser. Then it will probably work - sadly we couln't test it ourself till now but w'll implement it in about 2-3 weeks...
Check my thread here:
My problem is in firefox 4 but its probably the same issue. There is a work around in visual admin described in this note:
as of now only Internet Explorer version 8 and Firefox version 3.6 are supported. Hence, we recommend to use only these browsers. Please check details on supported browsers in PAM. We do not have any information about any specific release date at this time IE9, FF4 and other new browsers will only be available after they have been tested fully and all the issues are fixed. Only then we will be able to support them. As of now it is not possible to support IE9 and FF4. We are currently evaluating the support of these browsers and the information about the same will be updated in the Product Availability
The workaround specified in SAP Note No. 1347768 is specific to IE8 and has only been tested with it.
SAP Note No. 1524910 on the other hand is specific to SAP Netweaver 7.30 release.
Also the workarounds suggested for IE9 and FF4 does not guarantee that the WebDynpro applications will completely work with these browsers. This is simply to enable the WebDynpro applications to run on these browsers.
We will update PAM at Service Market Place as soon as we start supporting IE9 and FF4.
Modern browsers provide backward compatibility such that you can make your latest browser behave as an old one. The following article just answers your question -
I hope it helps resolve your problem !
Thanks and Regards,
