    Hello,

    in the W10TP2, there was an option to turn on EdgeHTML engine in IE11 by entering about:flags to address bar.
    There was a switch <ENABLE, DISABLE, AUTO> and applying the change required restarting IE.

    In b9926 I've tracked the following registry entries:

    ENABLE:
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
    "DisableRandomFlighting"=dword:00000001
    "EnableLegacyEdgeSwitching"=dword:00000001
    DISABLE:
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
    "DisableRandomFlighting"=dword:00000001
    "EnableLegacyEdgeSwitching"=dword:00000000
    AUTO:
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
    "DisableRandomFlighting"=dword:00000000
    "EnableLegacyEdgeSwitching"=dword:00000001
    Do you know any webpages, which are rendered by Trident and EdgeHTML differently, to verify the engine switching works in IE11 in RTM too?

    update : NVM does not have the file you requested

    I don't think it works since they removed it. You can check with Process Explorer if EdgeHTML.dll is loaded into the IE process (it's not on my machine).

    The code responsible for loading Edge engine into IE is still in iertutil.dll, but disabled. Anyone knows how to enable it?

    There seems to be a way, with symbolic links, but I do not know how to enable them
