Windows 7: Powershell

20 Sep 2013   #1

Windows 7

I was running a script on my 32bit OS that opened up IE and logged me onto my company's vpn.
I am now using 64bit OS and My company's vpn does not like 64bit IE. (firefox and chrome are also iffy with our vpn, IE is the only 'official one they support'). When the script runs now on my 64bit os. IE64bit version always runs. I have been unable to find anyway to force it to open IE 32 bit version. DOes anyone know of a command I can add to the script to make it ope 32bit IE? I have tried forcing the script to run the 32bit powershell but that opens up 64bit IE.

Ok, so I would have to add that path, where in this code?

# Create an ie com object
$ie = New-Object -com internetexplorer.application;
$ie.visible = $true;
# Wait for the page to load
while ($ie.Busy -eq $true)
