If you get the same error, then you might have encountered a known issue with IE11 when accessing Bonita. Good thing is that you can work around this issue following these steps :

a) At the top of IE, on the menu bar, select "Tools" > "Internet Options" ; b) In the "Internet Options" dialog box, go to the "Security" tab and click on "Trusted sites", then "Sites" ; c) Add "https://localhost/bonita/" if you have installed SSL on your Bonita server ; OR add "http://localhost/bonita/" if you haven't installed SSL ;

If you are not using SSL to access your server, you might have to uncheck the checkbox "Require server verification (https://) for all sites in this zone". Otherwise, you will have an error saying that your site can't be added since it doesn't have the prefix "https://".

d) Click on "Close" then "Apply" ; e) Go to "Login page" of Bonita and authenticate.
