Windows Server – Javascript Is Disabled

KB ID 0001133 


I had just built a Windows Server 2012 R2 server, and needed to download some updates. When I went to Microsoft to get them This is what I got;

2012 Javascript is disabled

Javascript is disabled
Please enable javascript and refresh the page.


All you should need to do is disable IESC  > Server Manager > Local Server > IE Enhanced Security Configuration > Turn it off, (Note: Here I’m just doing that for administrators).

2012 R2 Disable IESC

This should fix the problem;

Javascript enabled server 2012

If not check your IE settings.

IE enable Javascript

Disclaimer: You should turn this back on again, remember it’s a server, you should be browsing from your client PC.
