    Primarily, we have an issue where our select function is not being triggered after a user has selected a file. 
            async: { ... },
            select: function (e) {
                // Do things in here
    As shown above, the elemental bindings are conjured. In all cases to date, the select function works as expected. I've even dug around to prove that the kendoUpload object does, in fact, have the select property set. Problem is, as our QA just pointed out today, nothing ever happens in IE8 when a user makes a selection. I was hoping the fix would be something on my end, however it appears as though there's something more to it and I'd like to pose this to you and your team.  Thanks.

    I was unable to reproduce the issue in IE 8 on my side and in the Upload Events Demo. If the problem is still persisting, please send me a sample runnable project, which I could inspect locally and assist you further.

    I am looking forward to hearing from you.

    Due to the enterprise architecture and insane amounts of potential conflict in my environment, I would have a difficult time simply pulling out what's needed to replicate this behavior in a 'test' project. I also have no problems getting IE8 to work under other conditions, either. Good news though. I was able to get the kendoUpload tool to work. The problem ended up being associated with some knockout bindings. A developer had put the initialization of the kendoUpload widget within a rather laborious sequence of functions and, at the moment ko.applybindings ran, the kendoUpload element went undefined on me...the $('#file') element of the DOM was still there, but the connection to kendo was lost...hence there was no spoon.

    thanks for peeking in anyways.
