Why Does Connect Offline Require Internet Explorer

Knowledge Article Number 000186533
Description A customer would like to know why Connect Offline requires specific versions of IE when it is an offline tool.
Resolution The Connect Offline tool requires specific versions of Internet Explorer because it uses a Windows and Internet Explorer native .DLL file (wininet.dll) to connect to the internet. The tool requires some way to establish a connection through the internet back to Salesforce in order to sync the data.

See: Installing Connect Offline for the requirements.
