Having just returned from Ignite, I was excited to learn about the new Edge beta and installed it. We were told that every site would work at least in "internet explorer mode" but one of our 3rd party vendor web-apps does not. It is from BST Global (bstglobal.com/). I runs fine in Internet Explorer but does not load in the new Edge and I don't see any indication that it's trying to run in IE mode (or if that is something I need to force it to do). I'm pretty certain it uses Active X controls. Is there some process I can work through to try and get it to run correctly?

I thought I set everything correctly but it still doesn't seem to work.

Can you try using the Enterprise mode site list manager to test it?
there needs to be a site-list version parameter in your .xml file too.
when I used it, the created xml file looked like this:
<site-list version="3"> <created-by> <tool>EMIESiteListManager</tool> <version>10.0.14357.1004</version> <date-created>09/30/2019 08:56:15</date-created> </created-by> <site url="bing.com"> <compat-mode>Default</compat-mode> <open-in>IE11</open-in> </site> <site url="necacom.net"> <compat-mode>Default</compat-mode> <open-in>IE11</open-in> </site> </site-list>

@HotCakeX I used the tool, but it said it couldn't connect to the URL. Could it be because it's not pointing to a full domain name (with a .com extension) as it's running on an internal server? We point IE to http://cas-bst and the site loads. I did modify the XML to include the revisions you suggested. Still no luck.
I also changed the site to yahoo.com to see if I could verify at least that site was working, but it also does not appear in IE mode either.

@HotCakeX Seem to be making a little progress.
I was able to get IE Mode working (tested by setting the XML file to load Yahoo.com in IE Mode). That worked. I then put the URL of the web-app back in to test. Now, when the site starts to load, I do see the IE Mode icon flash briefly, but then it disappears as it moves to loading the .asp page that loads the content. It never progresses beyond the logo screen.
