 I configured the code review in my work items, as per 

When I click on the "Open Code Review" link, a new window pops up, but nothing displays (it appears to be continually loading or is hanging).

I am using IE10.

How can I get the code review to display?

RTC Code Review needs IE11+ to operate. Note: When IE 11 is in "compatibility mode", it is essentially operating in a pre-IE11 mode. See

I can confirm that when using IE 11 in compatibility mode, Code Review does not work and hangs showing three loading dots in the middle of the screen (but works just fine when compatibility mode is OFF). If you open up the browser web developer tools by pressing F12 in IE 11 and go to the Console tab, you will notice that there are JavaScript exceptions such as "Object doesn't support property or method 'create'".

 Try adding the URL of your server to the "trusted sites".  This should allow the applet to launch.
