Workarounds

There are several workarounds available for this error:

  • Open Perceptive Experience in a new tab.

    The error only occurs the first time accessing Perceptive Experience in a browser session. Either open a new tab and navigate to Perceptive Experience, or return to whichever link was clicked to initially open Perceptive Experience and click it again.

  • Use a different web browser.

    This bug only affects Internet Explorer 11 with wisc.edu set to open in compatibility view.

  • Disable compatibility view in Internet Explorer 11.

    This workaround is not recommended as other wisc.edu websites may require compatibility view to function.
