Free vs. Registered Edition Comparison

There are two editions of Image Surfer Pro. The Free Edition functionality is quite limited when it comes to building your own fusker collections and displaying videos and frames, but it does allow you to determine if the tool is of interest to you at zero cost and serves as a way of basically viewing fusker collections created by the Registered Edition.

User Access Control, Protected Mode & 64Bit Browsing

Both the free and registered versions of Image Surfer Pro include full support for User Access Control (UAC) and Protected Mode operation in Windows Vista, Windows7, and Windows8.x with IE8 or later installed. surf anywhere with your basic security suite enabled.

Enhanced Protected Mode is not supported in IE10 or IE11 on 64bit Windows8.x or Windows10 due to a conflict in the latest versions of Windows application containers which prevent IE from displaying a page from the local hard drive in a window previously viewing a page from the internet. Please review the information about disabling Enhanced Protected Mode and the associated risks.

On 64 Bit Windows operating systems, Image Surfer Pro Installation includes both the 64 Bit and 32 Bit installation allowing you to surf with either version of Internet Explorer, or both at the same time. User configuration is shared between both, making sure your configuration is always consistent.

All tutorials on this site assume you are using IE11. Image Surfer Pro works identically on IE6, IE7, IE8, IE9, IE10, and IE11 - however, access to the "Extension Toolbars" is slightly different on each.

Windows Specific Information

Windows8.x originally shipped with IE10 and now with IE11. IE10/11 greatly change your browsing experience. The so called "Metro" version of IE10 or IE11 is primarily designed for use with tablets and touch screens and does not support extension bars or other typical IE extensions. When accessing the web through the Internet Explorer "tile" from the "start page" you are using IE-Metro and will have no access to Image Surfer Pro (or any other extension).

To access Image Surfer Pro with Windows8 and IE10/11 you will need to utilize Internet Explorer from the Desktop. The Windows8.x Desktop area provides a more familiar interface and IE10/11 running in this mode do support extension bars and other typical extensions.

Windows10 ships with Internet Edge as the default web browser. Edge does not yet support any add-ons. This includes Image Surfer Pro. However, Internet Explorer11 is also shipped with Windows10. Simply search for the Internet Explorer application and use it instead of Edge. For ease of use, we suggest pinning IE next to Edge on the windows task bar.

64Bit IE10/11 on Windows8/10 is considerably different from 64Bit IE9 on Windows7. To support 64bit browsing previously there was a different Internet Explorer executable. Each executable utilized a different set of windows registry settings to access their extensions and effectively ran separately. IE10/11 handle 64bit operating systems entirely differently. There is a single Internet Explorer executable. The IE frame is always 64bit but the browser extenion windows may be running in either 32bit or 64bit. Some literature indicates you must enable Enhanced Protected Mode to assure you have a 64bit browser display area. However this no longer seems to be the case. With Enhanced Protected Mode disabled the 32bit version of Image Surfer Pro is loaded - however our testing indicates the display window still has full access to all of the memory and can display large numbers of high-resolution images not possible on in a 32bit processer.

Image Surfer Pro is not supported by Enhanced Protection Mode. This mode prevents a browser window which was previously viewing content on the Internet to load content from your hard drive. Unfortunately this prevents Image Surfer Pro from displaying content from the fusker collection. Refer to this page if you wish to continue using Image Surfer Pro on your 64bit Windows8/10 installation..

When upgrading Windows or Internet Explorer the upgrade does not fully maintain the required windows registry settings necessary to access Image Surfer Pro. We recommend uninstalling Image Surfer Pro before upgrading to Windows and then re-installing Image Surfer Pro after your upgrade is complete.

Support for Other Operating Systems and Browsers

Currently Image Surfer Pro only supports Windows operating systems and Internet Explorer. For the best experience we recommend 64bit IE11 on 64bit Windows10. Feel free to let us know your support for other operating systems and web browsers. If a sufficient number of our supporters would like us to support a different OS or web browser we will make every effort to do so.

Please send us an email (Support Mail) to report any bugs you may have encountered or provide any suggestions or feedback you feel would be helpful.
