Silverlight issue in Edge

Copper Contributor

My company has a web application that requires Silverlight to function. Currently it works fine when using IE 11. However with IE 11 phasing out next month I'm in need of a solution to continue using the application. When I try to use Edge with IE mode on I get a popup saying I need Silverlight installed even though I already have it.


I thought I could bypass this issue entirely by having new users install IE 11 but from my testing it appears the installer no longer works (I'm guessing because IE 11 is a Windows Feature or maybe because it's being phased out?).


Any help would be appreciated,
