Add a registry entry to define what version of Internet Explorer you want TAC Vista Workstation to use.

1. Navigate to the following registry key:
       32 bit OS: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MAIN\FeatureControl\FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION]
       64 bit OS: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MAIN\FeatureControl\FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION]
2. Add a new DWORD (32 bit) value
3. Give it the name "TACVistaExplorer.exe"
4. Give it the decimal value 11000 to set Workstation to use IE11
