You will need to add this in the head of the document:
<meta http-equiv="x-ua-compatible" content="IE=7">

That should direct the browser to use compatibility mode for ie7.

More detail about how is works can be found on the Microsoft developer site:

I already use each one of those:
<metax http-equiv="x-ua-compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE5" >
<metax http-equiv="x-ua-compatible" content="IE=5">
<meta http-equiv="x-ua-compatible" content="IE=7">

<meta http-equiv="x-ua-compatible" content="IE=edge" > 

but nothing effected.

Then either there is something else wrong with the page (like no valid doctype) or it is an as yet unreported bug in IE11.

What doctype are you using?

BTW, anything that relies on IE7 compatibility needs to be re-written because IE10 was the last to support it with native compatibility mode, and IE 11 may be the last to recognize IE7 ever existed.  At some point obsolete pieces have to be replaced or they will fail.

Hi,
IE is very picky if the meta tag is not one of the very first elements in the html head, therefore can you ensure that this meta tag is on top (with nothing else than the head tag before)?
Which web server are you using?
If its IIS then you can also configure IIS to send additional header information, setting the http-equiv directly there:
