Web-browser vs. IE version

The documentation gives the impression that the web-browser control works with the IE version installed on the client:

For the control to work, your users must have Microsoft Internet Explorer Version 4.0 or later on their machine.

But I don't think that's true.

The web-browser shows IE7 and this is not even installed on my computer, I'm working with Windows10 and IE11.

My question is: Can you set or have you infuence on the IE version that the browser-control is using ?

Thanks.

  • We thinks that the problem is related to the Compatibility View of the IE ActiveX.

    It is set to default at 7.0.

    We try several times to working with a specific registry key to change this behaviour, but without real stable result.

    In our case, we add to our html pages the following tag to force IE to use his highest compatibility view:

    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge" />

    It is possible only if the pages is create by yourself.
