Internet Explorer 11

We have an application that is older and being dropped from support within the next year.  With IE 10 we would just suggest for people to use Compatibility Settings and set their localhost to Compatibility View.   Works as expected.  

Now with IE 11, adding it to CV Settings and then closing IE and opening again, it disappears.  So it's not retaining the value.  Any one encountered this?  

Don't want to rewrite a piece of web software that's going out of its life cycle soon.  Any suggestions?

Did you try resetting IE11?  IE, Tools, Internet Options, Advanced and Reset.

I have IE11 and I have one address in my Compatibility View settings. It does not go away.

Is the application working as expected ?

IE 11 seems to not be able to properly detect if a website requires compatibility mode or not. So before when you needed to manually do it you could just press the Tool icon at the top right and click compatibility mode from there and just add your site to the list.

Now in order for that to show up, you need to press alt, or right click IE anywhere on the top bar and click menu. After you do either of those, click tools and look for Compatibility Mode Settings, then you can manually enter the site that is not working correctly and it should fix the problems for the sites that broke with this release.

We have 1 machine that retains the data, but never shows anything in compatibility mode.  The other removes it every single time you close IE.  

Any other ideas?  Besides removing 11?

If this is Windows 7, you can try removing IE11, checking if IE10 works properly. If so, restart and try IE11 again.

Did you try resetting IE as I suggested?

Microsoft can't upgrade their own dang browser / .net without hosing themselves.

The solution is to fix the .Net code with a patch from MS
