UPK: Is it Possible to Enforce IE8+ Document Mode in UPK 11.1 Content, to Prevent Compatibility Issue in IE11 with the Default Document Mode IE7? (Doc ID 2131942.1)

Last updated on MAY 02, 2016

Applies to:

User Productivity Kit - Version 11.1.0.0 to 11.1.0.2 [Release 11.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

A UPK 11.1 player does not work in IE11 web browser with the default document mode IE7, though it does work in mode IE8 when set manually by the user in the browser.
However such a manual change of document mode in each client IE browser is not an option for the wide non-developer current and future user population, it is not practical.
Is there a way to enforce in a player package to publish or already published the document mode IE8 to override the browser default, and if yes, how exactly, by what steps?
In particular, would adding HTML meta tag "X-UA-Compatibility" help, and if yes, in which files exactly to add it, would the including in to the header of "index.html" suffice?
