NEWS: EES now works on Apple computers. However, digitally signing XFDL forms still requires IBM Forms Viewer and eSign 6.6. Signable PDFs also require eSign 6.6 (both programs only exist for Windows computers) You can virtualize Windows or contact HRC for support and ask them when they will support Apple users.

Problem 1. I cannot sign forms in EES, but can sign other forms utilizing Lotus Forms and eSign on the same computer, or you see the following error message: "Unable to complete requested task; an internal error has occurred. Please note the exact error printed below and contact Silanis Technical Support."
Solution 1-1. Uncheck 'Enable Protected Mode' in Internet Explorer NOTE: You may not be able to do this on a government furnished computer
Here's How: Open Internet Explorer, click Tools, Internet Options, Security (tab), Uncheck the Enable Protected Mode (Requires restarting Internet Explorer) box. Visual (alternate visual)
Solution 1-2. This can also mean there are no certificates in the certificate store
(perhaps it is not seeing your CAC), or the certificates that it does
see are not designated as signing certificates.
Here's how to check that a certificate is a signing certificate:
-Open Internet Explorer > Tools > Internet options > Content tab >
-Select a certificate, click the View button, go to Details tab, click
on the Field named "Key Usage"

Problem 2. I'm unable to sign forms with my computer, I'm currently using Internet Explorer 11 or 10.
Information. HRC's developers wrote the site to work with Internet Explorer 9. So, you'll need to find an older computer and set up your CAC use on it.Solution 2: I have personally seen it work on IE 11 following the instructions in Solution 1-1 above and Problem 6 below
Problem 3. Will the Army ever acknowledge Mac users to work / sign forms?
Opinion. I don't think so. Contact APD and ask them this question
Problem 4. I can't login to EES via the direct link of https://evaluations.hrc.army.mil .
Solution 4. Login to your AKO account via CAC https://www.us.army.mil , then open a 2nd tab and go to https://evaluations.hrc.army.mil It should log you right in
Problem 5. I don't understand what they are asking for in the new Support Form?Information: See this PDF with some ideas.

Solution 6-1: Uncheck 'Enable Protected Mode' in Internet Explorer (See Solution 1-1 above for instructions)
Solution 6-2: Your computer needs Lotus Forms 4.0 and eSign 6.6 installed. Older versions will have to be uninstalled, computer restarted, then current versions installed.
