Edge fails to load legacy sites in IE mode.

Hi,

I am trying to get our legacy sites that need IE11 to open within an IE11 mode tab in Edge. Configuration is being set via Intune/MEM. All settings appear correct, but I cannot get it to work. I'm using Windows 10 and running the latest version of Edge.

Help please!

Configuration:

MEM Configuration Profile/Administrative Template>

Configure Internet Explorer integration = Internet Explorer Mode

Configure the Enterprise Mode Site List = https://xxxxxxxx/ie11.xml

XML File Content:

<site-list version="2">

<created-by>

<tool>EMIESiteListManager</tool>  

<version>12.0.0.0</version>  

<date-created>01/27/2021 14:48:44</date-created>  

</created-by>

<site url="www.bbc.co.uk">

<compat-mode>IE11</compat-mode>  

<open-in>MSEdge</open-in>  

</site>

</site-list>

edge://compat/enterprise
65857-aa.jpg

edge://policy/

65809-bb.jpg

Shown as set as user and device, but started with device only with same results.

Excerpt of chrome_debug.log

[8144:10088:0209/103028.230:VERBOSE1:dual_engine_navigation_throttle_win.cc(524)] Site found on sitelist. engine == Edge, allow-redirect == 0, matched sitelist url == *://www.bbc.co.uk, for_redirect == 0, IsHostingInternetExplorer == 0, IsRemoteDebugging == 0 for: http://www.bbc.co.uk/

Any ideas?

Many thanks

Mark

    Hi Don,

    Thanks for your reply. I do actually want the page to open in Edge, but in IE11 compat mode. However, it just opens in Edge normally. Therein lies my problem.

    Cheers

    Mark.

    the 'engine' needs to be IE11, you have set your example website to use MSEdge, so you are instructing to use Edge not IEMode :)

    edit your XML so that it states:

    <open-in>IE11</open-in>
    [remember to increment version ;)]
    <site-list version="2">

    example from my file:

    <site url="appsupport.ext.in.contoso.com.au/ServiceDeskOnline/">
    <compat-mode>IE5</compat-mode>
    <open-in>IE11</open-in>
    </site>
    <site url="smm.in.contoso.com.au">
    <compat-mode>IE8Enterprise</compat-mode>
    <open-in>IE11</open-in>
    </site>
    <site url="smm.in.contoso.com.au/topaz/">
    <compat-mode>IE8Enterprise</compat-mode>
    <open-in>IE11</open-in>
    </site>
    <site url="asm.in.contoso.com.au">
    <compat-mode>IE8Enterprise</compat-mode>
    <open-in>IE11</open-in>
    </site>
