How to make a Website should not load in Enterprise Mode

Q: How to make a Website should not load in Enterprise Mode

There is a website (https://myworldhr.contoso.com) which should work in corporate network and public network. https://myworldhr.contoso.com was part of the "Use the Enterprise Mode IE website list".
It is removed from "Use the Enterprise Mode IE website list" and group policy is applied in the user computer. But https://myworldhr.contoso.com still loads in Enterprise Mode and in IE8 mode.
If I uncheck from Enterprise Mode and change the mode to IE11 then it works.
How to find that how the website loads in Enterprise Mode and IE8 mode? Please help.

Preferred Solution: How to make a Website should not load in Enterprise Mode

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Our one of the website is opening in enterprise mode in IE 11. Even if we turn off the Enterprise mode from the Tools menu, the web page is still in compatibility view. In developer tool(F12) -> Emulation, if we change browser profile to "Desktop"
then only page is rendered properly. 
There is no website present in Tools -> "Compatibility View Setting". Even unchecked "Display intranet site in compatibility view".
Please let me know why this particular website opening in "Enterprise Mode" and why it is not responding if we turn off "Enterprise mode".

I have successfully created Group Policies, and an IIS web service for IE11 Enterprise Mode Logging as per related TechNet articles.
The IE11 Enterprise Mode Logging feature appears to log the time I toggle Enterprise Mode; however, it doesn't record all the fields.... This is what the file looks like.
#Fields:date cs-uri-query cs-username c-ip

2014-12-16 - -
2014-12-16 - -
What am I missing? 
I assume, perhaps, I have misconfigured something on the IIS Web Service?
Here are the reference articles:

A:IE11 Enterprise Mode and the IIS Logging Website EmIE.asp (Log the Toggle)

OK, it's logging everything now.  Here are the possibilities:

I failed to install the classic ASP server role (IIS server add/remove features) (theory)As an alternative, we converted the code to a modern C# ASP.net (aspx) solution.Make sure Anonymous Authentication is enabled so that it'll record the logged-on username (theory)

We are using Group Policy to issue an XML file with a list of sites for IE 11 to load in Enterprise mode.  We added our payroll company site because they were not compatible with IE 11, now they are ONLY compatible with IE 11.  I removed their
URL from the XML list over a week ago, but all company computers are still loading it in Enterprise mode.  I can have everyone turn it off manually, but the problem is they use so many subdomains that everyone would have to do it numerous times.  Why
is that happening?  I need to force this site and its subdomains to NOT load in Enterprise Mode.  It seems that when the URL was removed from the XML list it no longer forced it, but it also did not remove that setting.

A:Removing a site from Enterprise Model XML list for IE 11 does not disable enterprise mode for that site

No event error doesn't indicate the policy is applied fine. If the new configuration didn't work, the most probably reason was the group policy was not applied.
You could rest your Internet Explorer 11 and then restart the compute to check the result.
If it still doesn't work, run "gpresult /h gpreport.html" command to saves the report in HTML format with the file name "gpreport.html" at C:\Windows\System32\ directory.
Open this file to check if this group policy was applied successfully.Please remember to mark the replies as answers if they help, and unmark the answers if they provide no help. If you have feedback for TechNet Support, contact [email protected]

This should be the implementation guide to IE11 enterprise mode list.

My main question: in IE11, using F12 you see only document mode (Edge, IE10, 9 ...) but in Enterprise mode list, you can see
other options (screenshot). That's confusing. Why these enterprise modes AND document mode? What is the difference and why does the client only have document mode? Also what means each option and what logic is there to implement, f.e. first enterprise mode
then document mode, then in document mode first IE8 or IE10 ...?

Another question:
I do not have a local xml, when we look for xml, it points to \\domain\netlogon\ienterprisemode.xml
When I check Get-ItemProperty -Path "HKU:$using:SIDOfUser\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\EnterpriseMode").currentversion I do see a version. Where is this version then? Does that make sense?

Please advise.

Hello, please help me with the following issue.

One of the program that I used to operate a laboratory machine, AB 7300 (real time PCR) failed to load in normal mode but could be loaded in safe mode. The problem started to occur after I send the machine for repair. Apparently the problem was related to a loose computer cable but the technician also cleaned my registry file.

All the other programs could load normally. The OS is Windows XP SP 2 with the latest updates installed. The computer has an intel(R) Pentium(R) D CPU 3.40 GHz 3.39 GHz, 2GB RAM. I also have Bitdefender standard 9 antivirus, Zone Alarm Pro firewall ver 7.0.337 and AVG 7.5 anti-spyware. The machine is regularly scanned for virus anti spyware. the 7300 program was able to run previously even with these firewall/antivirus/antispyware running.

Using selective startup mode (by opening the msconfig.sys), the 7300 program could load even when all the SYSTEM.INI, WIN.INI, System services and startup Items are enabled. However, the program failed to load when the computer was started using the original BOOT.INI.

Thank you

I've got a wierd problem... I know there is in fact no viruses or spyware/hijacks of anykind because I just did a complete format because of a virus I had and no longer have. Anyways to the point...

When I try to do Windows Update using IE 6 SP1 I will not load the page... I got all the updates including SP1... but now I cannot check for anymore updates or get any other updated software (DirectX 9, WM 9... etc)

Also I try going to www.msn.com... that will not load either... it'll go for like 5mins then I get the "Cannot Display" page.

MSN Messenger I tried using the old v4.7 to login... it just saying logging in... go for 5mins then just goes back to the original screen when I gotta login again. So I installed the v6.2 same result. I do not understand wut is working against my internet that will not allow me to access those pages or msn messenger. I am using DSL 3.0mbps on routerpppoe. I can access this page ofcourse... google.com... yahoo.com... stickdeath.com...etc...etc. Just the microsoft website I cannot. I find this really odd for my msn messenger was working fine a week ago and I was able to get some of the updates for windows xp pro this morning after I formatted.

I'm having trouble setting up my internet on a computer. I tried all the usual things and have narrowed the problem down to something between the computer and the router. I opened up the router (Linksys Wireless-G) page (with all the router settings, I know its got a name...) on the computer and have checked all the settings against another computer on the same router that works fine. I then went into the diagnostics page of the router settings and began trying to ping various websites. It successfully pinged www.google.com, but when I tried to open the same site in Firefox it would not load. I pasted the IP address for Google,, into Firefox and it loaded the page. When I try a search, or try to navigate away from the page I'm told that "the page cannot be displayed" just like before. I don't understand the problem, I can send and receive data but I can't open any webpages. I'm assuming there's a setting somewhere that I've overlooked, could someone please point me in the right direction?

A:Solved: Browsers will not load microsoft website but will load FB, Google etc etc

Either it's a problem server side for them, which would be an issue with your IP,
or a process/service altered some of your core system settings on your end which blocks the microsoft website for some reason....., you can try a different IP address just to make sure it's not server side for them, and then if that doesn't work I am not sure what to tell you other than reinstalling all browsers, and eventually refromatting if reinstalling browsers does not work.

IF it is an IP issue it could be something with your network, if a network admin blocked the microsoft website, or even theoretically your ISP if there was a strange issue with them, however that would be rare.

Hi. I just want to know if there is a hack that will make the print spooler start in safe mode. I'm using Windows Vista 64 bit. If there is no hack currently, could someone tell me of an easy way to create one? I know there was one for xp, but it didn't work for Windows Vista. Thanks.

Are you able to boot in safe mode? It seems like you might have a conflict with the program wanting to run at start up..
My first suggestion is to boot safe mode, then remove your AV.. See if that helps..
Also, do you have more than one anti-virus program installed?

i've set "Enterprise mode" with a share central file xml implemented in a GPO.
I've build the xml file with the last updated "EMIESiteListManager".
60 web applications are set in the XML file and they are running as intended with the right compatibility settings.
But I have one strange behavior for one application.
for example:
I have set www.trpf.com as IE5 document mode and
www.trpf.com\srt as IE8 document mode.
the results are:
www.trpf.com\srt is rendered as IE8 but
www.trpf.com is also  rendered as IE8 where it would be IE5 ?
other web apps like www.trpf.com\xdf are also rendered as IE8  ?
I have missed something ?
Thank you for your help

A:Enterprise mode and Document mode

Hello jeanluc_69,
What do you mean about the sentence ?set www.trpf.com as IE5 document mode and
www.trpf.com\srt as IE8 document mode??  Set in the code?
Based on my test, if I use the Enterprise Mode Site List Manager to add the sina.com.
And then add it to the registry. The website www.sina.com will show as Document mode 7.

If I turn on compatibility mode manually in IE11 it correctly detects the existence of a DOCTYPE tag in the html and either uses IE7 or IE5 document mode. It is happily using IE7 mode as we do have a DOCTYPE tag on our internal webserver.
It I use an Enterprise Mode site list to choose IE7 Enterprise mode or IE7 Document Mode, it always uses IE5 document mode, regardless of the DOCTYPE tag.  While we transition, the default for our internal sites need to
be in IE7 mode, but IE5 is breaking our sites.
Can anyone else confirm this behavior or know how to make it not use IE5 document mode?

I tried to install Windows 10 Enterprise 64 bit on a Samsung laptop with i5 processor, 4MB Ram; currently I run the same of 8.1.

When I turn on the computer with the bootable USB stuck in I am prompted 'Press any key to boot from USB' and when I do the Windows logo appears, all good so far. However, the swirling circle of small stars does not appear under the logo, as it always does while booting, and accordingly nothing happens. After though I can't even turn off the computer, the only way to kill it is to remove both the plug and the battery.

I downloaded the installation ISO from two different websites and created the bootable USB by two different programs, always the same happens.

We have a corporate Enterprise with IE11 on Windows 7. We are using Enterprise Mode instead of "open intranet sites in compatibility view" which is now unchecked.

We want sites to open in IE 8 Document Mode instead of the Edge Default which occurs when we uncheck the intranet site compatibility view.
We have the XML and Enterprise Mode Enabled and it is processing BUT the sites are changing from Edge to Document Mode 5 instead of 8?

I have tried ALL the document modes and even IE 8 Emulation and it doesn't matter which one we set, the sites are going to Document Mode 5, with the exception of Livemeeting.com which is opening in IE 8 Document Mode as it should.

Now we can set it manually in IE using the Emulation but it does not last the session.

<rules version="1">
    <domain docMode="8">subdir1.mydomain.com</domain>
    <domain docMode="8">subdir2.mydomain.com</domain>

I need to make a Windows 7 Enterprise (32-bit) USB boot stick for our new T470's.

Hi all,
I am using WIndows 7 Enterprise (SP1) 64-bit version. It runs on MX100 SSD, i5 processor and 4GB RAM. I have no issue with boot-up as it happens quite fast. However, upon login, there are some programs that take a long time to load (around 3-4 minutes). And when they are loaded, they load together.  Affected programs include ExpressVPN, Services Properties, live protect status of my Panda Anti-virus and so on. Again, when these programs are loaded, they appear/load at the same time. Other programs like Outlook, Word, Excel, and so on are loaded without any delay. Initially, my network icon (wired and wireless) also took a long time to appear (and loaded together with the programs above). But during this process, I could already connect to the Internet. I resolved this issue by changing Network Connections in Services from Manual to Automatic startup type. Anybody can help me?

I have a few questions about the IE11 Enterprise mode.

I understand that IE11 will mimic IE8's behaviour if running in the Enterprise mode. Does it mean that it will lose the advanced features that IE11 has as a modern browser?  For example, does the document.all exists in IE11 enterprise mode?How can I detect if my browser is running in the IE11 enterprise mode in Javascript?  I understand that IE will automatically switch to the enterprise mode if the url is in the Enterprise mode list. But we have a page using frameset like this. How does the IE decide if it switch to IE enterprise mode? If only server1 is on the list, are
menu.aspx and content.aspx in IE11 normal mode?
<frameset rows="50, *">
<frame src="server1/header.aspx">
<frameset id="fraMain" cols="25%,*">
<frame name="fraMenu" id="fraMenu" src="server2/menu.aspx">

Our case is that we have a web app that is working great on IE8 (win7). We have upgraded our clients to Win10 and so they now have IE11 but there are some functionalities that are not working with IE11.
I did a search and found some pages about emulation and enterprise mode. I tried both where in emulation, I set document mode to 8 then user agent string to IE 8 but the mode was Desktop, I couldn't make it enterprise from emulation window (when I do this,
the string changes to IE11) then I changed document mode to 5 as some things weren't properly shown but some functionalities are still not working as if , I'm not working with IE8 yet.
I tried enterprise mode using gp update method then I opened the web app and from tools, selected "Enterprise Mode" but I also got the same behavior.
So I want to know if there is something I'm missing in the steps to make IE11 work as if it is IE8.
I have also read about MS VMs for this but before going into this way, I wanted to see if I could achieve what I need in a more simple way.
So please advise.
Thank you.

I'm using Windows 10 and I'm trying to configure it so that when I open a certain page in Microsoft Edge, it will detect show to open it in Internet Explorer. I'm trying to do this by using Enterprise Mode. 

I read all the articles on TechNet and it seems to be configured properly, but it simply won't work! Here's what I did...I first used the Enterprise Site Tool to create my XML file, which looks like this:

<rules version="5">
    <domain exclude="false">helpdeskgeek.com</domain>
    <domain docMode="10">www.online-tech-tips.com</domain>

Next, I went into the registry and change these two settings:

1. User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Use the Enterprise Mode IE website list 
2. User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Microsoft Edge\Allow you to configure the Enterprise Site List

For both, I entered the local path to my XML file. Here is where I think something is wrong. This is the path I am using:


When I type this into IE or Edge, it opens the file just fine, but like I said, when I visit the webpages in Edge, it just loads them normally. It does not give me a message to open the pages in IE.

Hi Everybody,
MS16-063 introduces Enterprise
Mode XML schema v.2 support while maintaining support for v.1.
After the patch installs,
computer reboots, it needs to connect to the site list once in order to re-parse it or the sites won't load in Enterprise Mode.
Vast majority of users are
virtual. When a patch is installed, our users log back in with a cached account.
Our VPN, Cisco AnyConnect,
requires going to a website in order to connect. The website in IE 11 must be rendered in Enterprise Mode or it will not work.
As you can see we have an issue here with our virtual users who are 12K+ and cannot come to an office.
Does anyone have any suggestions besides using a different browser?
Thank you.

1. if I open the new xml in the enterprise mode sites list manager gui, both the imagingga/documentimport and imagingua/documentimport show that they are set up exactly how I want them - the main site in "ie8 enterprise mode," and documentimport
in "ie11 document mode."

we have a website that support IE and other platforms
lately we started to get some complains from IE11 customers on Windows 10 that can't get the website to load on their PCs
as we're trying to do our best to have the website compatible for IE11, we know that run our website in compatibility mode \ enterprise mode overcomes the compatibility issue.
my question is - until we get the full compatibility, instead of having all the customers call us and complain and get instructions,  is there's something we can do from our side to force IE11 clients to run on compatibility mode \ enterprise mode when
they enter our website?

Would it manage non Intranet - Public sites?

I was trying to configure the Enterprise Mode here in my organizaton.
What I did:

Downloaded and installed the Enterprise Mode Site List Manager 5.1 (v2 Schema)
on my Windows 10 Pro client (last build 10586.420)Added some local sites to it and exported to a XML fileCopied the XML file to the Netlogon folderCreated a new test GPO and enabled the "Allow users to activate and use Enterprise Mode" and "Use this list of sites on Enterprise Mode" policies and set the path to the XML file (it isn't the correct translation of them, Brazilian Portuguese
here)Applied that GPO on the UO where my machine isExecuted the gpupdate /force commandTried to open one of those sites on Microsoft Edge and it opened the local site normally... It wasn't supposed to show the "This must be opened on Internet Explorer" warning? (once again, not the correct translation of the message)Went to the registry and both keys were applied correctly ('enabled' and where the XML file is)Tried adding www.aol.com just to tryIn the about:compat on Microsoft Edge no sites are showing in the
Enterprise Mode Site List
I thought it was my machine, so I created a new VM with Windows 10 and tried again... same thing.
Is there a way to troubleshoot this?

hopefully this is the right forum for this question, i didn't see an IIS forum..
i just set up enterprise mode logging for ie11 on server 2012 r2, iis 8.5.

what i've set up so far:
- installed iis, .net and asp
- configured default website, tested localhost and remote access successfully
- configured logging to include specific fields as per MS logging documentation
- created and copied asp file to root of default website
- configured and successfully tested enterprise mode gpo with xml site list (site list is being copied to local C: drive of each computer via the same gpo)

- configured and successfully tested gpo to allow users to turn EM on/off for sites (via Tools menu in IE)
- added local server url for logging to gpo (ie, http://servername:81/emIE.asp)
- added full permission for server and iis_iusrs accounts to default site permissions
- did a gpupdate /force and turned on/off EM on various websites

when i look at my default website's log file (C:\inetpub\logs\LogFiles\W3SVC1), i don't see any entries for the on/off activities, but i does have some stuff.. not seeing anything related to the em testing though.
can anyone point me in the right direction as to what i'm missing?  hopefully it's something simple!

Hello I admin a large number of PCs in a Active Directory Domain.

I would like to have a group of computers that all log in with the same user name,
load a fresh new default profile. Not interested in a mandatory profile.

Is the a registry key or something that will cause windows to not save changes
and reload a fresh default profile for a particular user name?

I've successfully deployed Enterprise Mode (EM) within our environment and host the XML on a public web server for accessibility.  I've had success in accessing sites in EM, however recently I've added a new site which is having a peculiar
issue.  This particular site redirects you to an "Incompatible Browser" page when viewing the site in IE11 and after putting it in EM it still displays this page, however when accessing the site from another computer, EM works and the site
displays correctly. I've tried deleting all cache from Temporary Internet Files (specifically the XML) and various methods in attempting to access it, however I'm still unable to access from computers who have been presented with the "Incompatible
Browser" page.
Does anyone know if this would be some cache issue I'm unaware of? Is there a way to force EM for a particular site for testing purposes other than using the XML? Any additional advice or feedback would be great.


A:Enterprise Mode / IE11 Cache Issue

John,   If you are hand editing the XML for your sitelist, make sure you update the rules version to a higher number.  The browser will check the list and only apply new rules if the version is higher.  You can check the current users
rules version here...  HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\EnterpriseMode

Hope that helps.
