IE11 Enterprise mode setup RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am looking for target my application to run under IE9 compatibility mode in IE11 browsers without doing any changes in client machines.

    Is it possible to configure particular application or specific page to run under enterprise mode at IIS level. If I want to target IE9, can we use "x-ua-compatible" header with IE9 mode. Is it still supported?

    Thank you.

  • Hi,

    If you are a website developer, then your in the wrong forum.... this one's for system administrators managing domain networked computers using MSIE web browsers on clients.

    Post questions about html, css and scripting to http://stackoverflow.com. Include with your question a link to your web site.

    You should be already using html5 and the latest 'living standards' and providing a graceful fallback for userAgents that don't support the features you are using in your web pages.

    You can test your site at http://modern.ie for compatibility issues with the latest versions of IE.

    you can feature test for IE9 or higher emulations with

    if(window.addEventListener)

    commonly developers can use a framework like jquery and modernizr to provide gracefull fallbacks for HTML5 features that legacy browser suits do not natively support.

    see caniuse.com for a comprehensive listing of support features sets for legacy browsers.

  • Hi,

    it depends if your web apps are using server side browser sniffing. Older versions of asp.net will not recognize the IE10-X UAS.

    the preferred/recommended method for intranet applications is to use Enterprise Mode.

    On WinX/Spartan meta and header x-ua is ignored.

  • Hi Rob,

    Thank you for the details. I am trying to understand the options available for both intranet/internet facing application to run under IE9 compatibility mode by default without end user action.

    My current environment:

    IIS - 7.5, ASP.NET 4.0

    Targeted browser - IE9 / IE10 / IE11
