Breeze and Angular 'ToDo' application does not work with IE 8


I have downloaded the sample 'Breeze 0.83.5' applications from

The Angular 'ToDo' sample does not work with IE8.

I have included the following script references above my Breeze script reference.

Any idea why this doesn't work?

Breeze's Angular support makes use of the 'backingStoreAdapter' which in turn depends on the ES5 Javascript 'defineProperty' method being implemented by the browser. This was not implemented in IE8, and unfortunately, cannot be supplemented via the use of a shim.

This is the only adapter that has this limitation, the breeze knockout and backbone adapters, both work with IE8 with the use of ES5 shims.
