    I gather that's true of the mishmash of software run by some of our UK banks - e.g. RBS.

    I mean- who codes in COBOL today?

    Banks face continued IT woes as legacy infrastructure holds them down

    Hi there

    Hi there
    that's a good enough reason of course but the main point I was trying to make that the company surely must give all the correct tools to their employees / contractors for them to do their work properly -- seems unreasonable that a company would want a user to "break" stuff on their own private computers.

    As for outdated software - I understand that -- we had quite a few problems with running a SAPGUI system to a SAP backend -- some SAP transactions call a load of web services and IE11 was the default browser -- now EDGE works and provided some config is done Firefox also works and they are working on Chromium based applications which I think Ms is doing too.


    You can get an old IBM MVS emulator which runs just fine on a PC with the old IBM mainframe OS (JES2, COBOL, FORTRAN, TSO, ASSEMBLER) etc and play with that if you want to. !!!!

    Hercules emulator !!!

    A typical laptop probably has far more power than those old IBM mainframes did anyway

    Back in the day it was the norm for a company to supply all that an employee required to perform their job

    Things are in flux at the moment with a lot of employees preferring to take part in these "Bring your Computer to work" schemes, that provides the employee with a far better level of hardware than the company does, and keeps costs down for the company.

    There is a serious issue that is brought into focus by this way of working that is highlighted here, in this thread, Computer tech in today's world advances at a rate far in excess of Moore's Law, but a lot of this is software driven rather than hardware.

    The very fact that the worlds choice of operating system is now set to update considerably twice a Year, rather than once every three or four years, means that company software that is often designed around an eight or Ten year life cycle will always fall behind quickly which means that the business model used for the recent past must revert again to the previous model, returning the responsibility and the cost back "in House"

    "Run what you Brung" may still be acceptable in the world of unofficial Street Car Racing but it has no place in business.

    It’s probably an old ActiveX control that’s required by the software to function.

    IE11 has extra security for ActiveX, and I believe disables them by default. This can be disabled, but doing so puts your system at risk. You should only use IE in this mode for your work applications and use chrome or ff or edge for everything else.

    There is documentation here
