DRACOON for Outlook uses an embedded Internet Explorer (a so-called WebBrowser control) to display the login screen. By using the registry key
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION a specific Internet Explorer version can be predefined for an application that all Internet Explorer instances within this application will then use. If the application OUTLOOK.EXE has an older Internet Explorer version than 11 set in this registry value, the login to DRACOON for Outlook will no longer work because older Internet Explorer versions than 11 are not supported by DRACOON (also Microsoft no longer supports Internet Explorer versions earlier than 11 since 2016).
