Microsoft Edge doesn't support ActiveX controls or Browser Help Objects (BHOs) like Silverlight or Java , we cannot ask our customer to keep changing to Internet Explorer 11 mode as we have upgraded all our web application compatible with edge . its an US healthcare web application and we have to follow HIPAA . Need an alternative fix for this .

    Silverlight has been out of support for years. IE just end of lifed this week. Neither are usable anymore. You didn't clarify exactly what you're using BHO or Silverlight for so it is hard to provide a replacement but pretty much everything you need is built into HTML5. You'll have to migrate your app and code. Alternatively if you need something more interactive then take a look at Blazor.

    There is no migration path or workaround for these legacy technologies. You're going to have to rewrite your code.

    Hi @Arindam Choudhury

    Silverlight reached the end of support on October 12, 2021. You can refer to this doc. It's only supported on IE 11 now. So if you still want to use Silverlight, you can only use Edge IE mode. And just as cooldadtx says, there's no migration path or workaround.
