We have a production web site using Ajax Toolkit controls and started getting reports of them not working in IE8. One of our developers has IE8 and they work fine for him. I have the same version of IE8 and they don't work for me. If I go to the toolkit
demo page here at asp.net/ajax they don't work so it's obviously not isolated to our web site. I get the following error:
ASP.NET Ajax client-side framework failed to load
Any ideas? I suspect the users out there reporting our pages not working are on Vista. I doubt they are on Server 2008 as I am.

Folks, this had nothing to do with our server or its components. The behavior occurred hitting the toolkit demo page here at http://www.asp.net/ajax/AjaxControlToolkit/Samples/, and it only happened with IE 8 on certain Windows installs.
I figured out how to work around it - you have to add the web site to the trusted domains, and then everything magically starts working again. There seemed to be no settings otherwise that made any difference.
So, not sure what is up here. Maybe on some versions of Windows IE 8 delegates the work to an Active X control or something that only works if the domain is trusted? Why would it require the domains be added to the trustedlist on some versions of Windows
but not others?

I have the same issue in my web site. My web site is built in ASP.Net 3.5. It is working fine on IE7 (OS: Windows XP, 32 Bit) but not on IE8 (Windows 2008 OS, 64 Bit). I have following issues:
I saw your thread on this forum and add my site in Trusted sites. I saw that above #1 and #2 issues are resolved. But #3 is not fully resolved. Now SubMenu is getting opened but unable to display the SubMenu names. Means user is unable to click on
Any idea, how I can resolve this issue?
Please help me.
Thanks in advance

Sorry, we decided that update panels are a bad idea, and have turned to jquery - check it out - it's a much better way to go. It has less (maybe no) issues across different browsers, and is super easy to use. There's no update panel...we just make an ajax
call to the server and then update a div or whatever with the results. It's a lot faster as with an update panel the page is still fully posting back and the full aspx chain executing on the server even if you're only changing one character on the screen.
