wtf kind of trading platform is still designed for IE? Have they done no development in the past 10 years?

IE has hidden features outside the scope of public web that are worthwhile.

Is it native code loaded as an activex control?

There's a reason that shit's dead.

no. HTML text with inline images used by MSFT exporters.

Vendor honestly should have seen this writing on the wall 10 years ago and made some middleware of their own (or licensed middleware, there's a lot of shit for Office interop) to handle this sort of document rendering. Everyone's known classic IE was due for EOL for a long long time.

I assume being some kind of finance app a license/subscription to this thing isn't cheap either, which is just sad (and expected).

I Sung67's (that's not me btw) case I agree that IE is deprecated and his trading partner should upgrade. But I sure hope that Microsoft can port over all the specialities of IE into Edge for document interop. Found a workaround for my issue with IE so I am not that sad about it's departure anymore (took some C# scripting to utilize poorly documented interop API).

Microsoft is probably one of the best companies for backwards compat, if there's enough demand for a certain legacy feature they just might do it.

Problem with a lot of legacy IE tho is it's just structurally broken; the security model of current gen rendering engines will likely break a lot of stuff on a conceptual level.

in my case not the conceptual level is broken but the implementation level. really annoying.
