IE8 Returns IsMobileDevice = "True"

Nov 17, 2009 at 3:17 PM

The title pretty much says it all.  I'm running on Windows 7, x64, 32-bit Internet Explorer 8 and I'm using the mobile device browser file.  It seems to work well when I test user agents like the iPhone but it is also returning IsMobileDevice="True" when surfing in IE8.  Is this expected? Do I have something set up wrong?  Thanks.

UPDATE: I searched and didn't find anything since CodePlex search sucks but I went through the issues and this is a known outstanding issue with the November release.

I'm trying to October release file instead.

One more update. The October file solved my issues.  If you have this issue, please upvote the issue (linked above).  We can't move forward in releases with IE 8 Desktop recognizing as a mobile site.

Same issue here. I'm using the October 09 release until it's fixed. Please quickly vote on this issue at to ensure it's fixed next time!
