  • Hi PVR,

    I get the same result if I add my Silverlight web application into IE compatibility view.

    If you want the default mode is IE 11, we need to assign it in the .aspx page with following code.

    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE11" />

    More information about Defining document compatibility, please refer to following document.
