How to remove <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=5">

Hi there!

Our add-in only works on IE9 or newer.
It has to work on an external site which has <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=5"> at the top of every page.
Is there a way to remove "<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=5">" using the IEModule so that document mode is not set to 5?

Note: The external site will not remove it and our clients can not be expected to follow instructions for any workaround.
It has to be done at an early stage in order to work. As soon as the browser detects X-UA-Compatible, any changes afterwards has no effect.

It can be done in the OnDataAvailable event of the iemodule. Please look at the How to modify HTML source code before it is rendered in IE example.

Got it to work.
Note: From the code example "ADXIEDataAvailableEventArgs.ADXIEReportDataState.DataMimeTypeAvailable" does not exist.
Please update the example.

Hello Morten,

The DataMimeTypeAvailable value was added to the ADXIEReportDataState enumeration in the latest (9.2.6123) build of Add-in Express for Internet Explorer and .net. Please install the latest version.
