wizards.js that is loaded into all dashboards by the console has issues with IE11 engine when enabled, but not the IE9 engine. I’m not sure what the exact issue is, but ideally it would be solved to allow it to work with IE11.
Despite the fact that IE11 is installed, the BigFix console uses IE7 compatibility view for all Wizards and Dashboards by default. This seems to be the case to keep old and outdated dashboards working that would otherwise need revamped to work with newer IE versions.

wizard.js to throw an error:
Another thing that really caused me a lot of trouble while trying to figure this out is that no matter what I did to change the IE mode, the user agent never seemed to change from that of IE7, even though I’m fairly certain it should have.
