I am seeing and issue that is specific to SharePoint 2010 and Internet Explorer 10.

In this configuration, if I try to use the book icon of the Assigned To field to select people, I am getting an error. If I just type the names in the field, everything works fine.

I have been able to replicate the error on 3 different, unrelated environments, so I assume this is a Microsoft bug.

Is there a fix for this?

One thing to keep in mind is that full IE10 support for SharePoint 2010 will be arriving with SP2. On a test farm, you can download SP2 from and try to replicate it with IE10. – Trevor Seward Jun 12 '13 at 20:10

Release date is not announced. All of the information available for SP2 will be on the Connect site ( – Trevor Seward Jun 12 '13 at 20:13
