That's odd that IE8 is not supported. WCS 5.2 tree worked just fine with IE8. I'm not sure what I need to do at this point then since I can't install FireFox and I can't downgrade from IE 8. I really do not want to downgrade from WCS 6.0 becuase, in my expierence, downgrades don't always go that well.
Thanks for your input lavramov, it is much appreciated.
