With WebOffice 10.8 SP2, ArcGIS versions 10.2.x as well as 10.3.x are no longer supported.

WebOffice 10.8 SP2 is the last version that officially supports Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 as well as Edge (Legacy). During 2021, support for Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 as well as Edge (legacy) will be completely retired.

ACHTUNG!

WebOffice 10.8 SP2 will be released with ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.17 and is therefore the last version that officially supports Internet Explorer 11 as well as Edge (Legacy). Starting with the next WebOffice major release, WebOffice will again be based on the last available ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.x and will not support Internet Explorer 11 as well as Edge (Legacy) anymore. If you want to continue using Internet Explorer 11 as well as Edge (Legacy) in the meantime, it is recommended to stay on version WebOffice 10.8 SP2+ and do not upgrade further.

Deploying ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.18 with WebOffice 10.8 SP2 is then recommended so that systems that have issues with ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.17 and no longer need support for Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 as well as Edge (Legacy) can optionally deploy the newer version. For more details see Change ArcGIS API for JavaScript version.
