The Lawson Portal does not support this browser: Netscape

The error message is:
“The Lawson Portal does not support this browser: Netscape.”

The fix is:
In Internet Explorer, go to the Lawson webpage.
At the top of the Internet Explorer window, click on Tools, then “Compatibility View” This will put a check mark next to it.
Quit Internet Explorer, then go back into Lawson. It should work now.

If it doesn’t, go to Internet Explorer/Tools/Compatibility View Settings and add the Lawson website manually.

Details from David Nelson:
Internet Explorer 11 does not specifically identify itself as IE to web servers anymore, unless it’s in compatibility mode.

Its default identification is something like this:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Trident/7.0; rv:11.0) like Gecko

In compatibility view it identifies itself as IE 7.
Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.3; Trident/7.0; .NET4.0E; .NET4.0C)

Web applications that specifically sniff for Internet Explorer get confused and think its a different browser.
