Error: Your browser is no longer supported . Upgrade and Install new...

On 8/3/2016, I was playing my nVidia Shield and trying to log in my Google+ account. Then, I encountered an error message showing on GeForce Experience:

"Your browser is no longer supported . Upgrade and Install new one"

"이후 이상 지원되지 않는 브라우저 입니다. 최신 버전으로 업데이트 하세요 라는 문구가 뜨면서 인증을 계속 진행할 없는 상황입니다. "

I Googled this error message but found nothing about it. 

On the very same day, I was configuring EVO Collaborator for Outlook on my Outlook to sync my google contact, calendar and task with Microsoft Outlook. I met the same error message.

Your browser is not supported anymore.

Then, I contacted EVO staff regarding this matter. After a few hours, they replied me with a solution of a newer release along with an explanation:

Many PC software applications are written in Microsoft .Net Framework which is still using IE6 web browser control core. Under this environment, Google’s OAuth will think my IE browser is too old even though I am already on a Windows 10 with IE 8, 9, 10 or 11. Now, we came up with a solution to emulate the IE environment to persuade Google OAuth that it is already running a newer IE version.

After I downloaded the newer version, EVO Collaborator for Outlook is working properly with Google OAuth. Yet, EVO staff also told me that I can in fact use the .reg files included in the ECO package on other applications with the same issue by simply changing “outlook.exe” with executable file of applications that have the same issue. 

I was asking EVO staff if I can apply the same registry tweak on my GeForce case? They said, “Of course! Why not?” Then, I stuffed GeForce’s executable file called “GFExperience.EXE” in place of “Outlook.exe”. Amazingly, it works for my nVidia Shield. Thank you! EVO staff! You are wonderful!

By the way, here are what these two registries files look like: (one for XP and one for Windows 7-10):

  • Windows 7-10:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION]"GFExperience.EXE"=dword:0000270f

  • Windows XP:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION]"GFExperience.EXE"=dword:000022b8
