Below is a list of the known issues with the MyNearest Builder.
If you have found a new issue then please report it to support@esriuk.com

MyNearest Builder management page may not load correctly in Internet Explorer 9

There are some elements in the management page which can cause IE9 to jump into something it calls “Quirks mode” which stops the page from loading correctly.

The solution is to turn this mode off if it happens. You can do this by pressing F12 and then changing the "Document mode" to "Internet Explorer 9 Standards"
