At one time, PSI respected my default browser. Sometime during the last few months, it has resorted to using Internet Explorer. Anyone know what happened and if this will be fixed?

For certain functions PSI has always used IE.

It should not & does not require your default browser to be IE. Maybe worth checking your preferred default browser remains set up correctly in the Registry. Details of the exact requirement for a Registry entry for various browsers are here:


Windows 7 SP1 64 Bit OS
HP Intel Pentium i7
IE 11 for Windows 7 SP1
