Selenium + IE8: force IE8 compatibility view

0 votes
I'm running Selenium in singleWindow mode and IE8.

If i start IE8 manually the IE8 mode is set, but when i launch it with Selenium, the mode set is IE7 using the compatibility mode.

Anyone knows why the compatibility mode is not the IE8 view when launching the browser with Selenium?

Or, how can i disable totally the compatibility mode in IE and force it to use always the IE8 view?
