Desktop Sync with Windows 8.1 and IE11

Customers on Windows 8.1 using IE11 may experience an issue where their local web settings page http://127.0.0.1:8806/do_sync_default does not show properly in the Internet Explorer 11 browser. This is due to a change in the Windows 8.1 to requires that the http://127.0.0.1 be added to the trusted sites.

Workarounds:

1. Use another supported browser (i.e. Chrome or Firefox)

2. Access the settings page using localhost in place of 127.0.0.1 (i.e. http://localhost:8806/do_sync_default)

3. Add http://127.0.0.1 to trusted sites
