Asp:ButtonColumn not working in Ie11


I was working to an old VB.NET web application with Visual Studio 2010 , .NET 4.0; the solution for tables uses asp:DataGrid

Until Internet Explorer 10 all ok, with Ie11 the asp:ButtonColumn inside an asp:DataGrid was not working, clicking the link nothing.

It seems that the .NET 4 framework does not work well with Ie11 , and the update to .NET 4.5 was not an option (Windows Server 2003).

With the latest updates Ie11 was still recognized as Mozilla 0.0

The solution is to add an App_Browser folder

And then inside the folder create an .browser file with this content:

  <browser id="IE11" parentID="Mozilla">
      <userAgent match="Trident\/7.0; rv:(?'version'(?'major'\d+)(\.(?'minor'\d+)?)(?'letters'\w*))(?'extra'[^)]*)" />
      <userAgent nonMatch="IEMobile" />
      <userAgent match="Trident/(?'layoutVersion'\d+)" />
      <capability name="browser" value="IE" />
      <capability name="layoutEngine" value="Trident" />
      <capability name="layoutEngineVersion" value="${layoutVersion}" />
      <capability name="extra" value="${extra}" />
      <capability name="isColor" value="true" />
      <capability name="letters" value="${letters}" />
      <capability name="majorversion" value="${major}" />
      <capability name="minorversion" value="${minor}" />
      <capability name="screenBitDepth" value="8" />
      <capability name="type" value="IE${major}" />
      <capability name="version" value="${version}" />

  <!-- Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Trident/7.0; rv:11,0) like Gecko -->
  <browser id="IE110" parentID="IE11">
      <capability name="majorversion" match="11" />

      <capability name="ecmascriptversion" value="3.0" />
      <capability name="jscriptversion" value="5.6" />
      <capability name="javascript" value="true" />
      <capability name="javascriptversion" value="1.5" />
      <capability name="msdomversion" value="${majorversion}.${minorversion}" />
      <capability name="w3cdomversion" value="1.0" />
      <capability name="ExchangeOmaSupported" value="true" />
      <capability name="activexcontrols" value="true" />
      <capability name="backgroundsounds" value="true" />
      <capability name="cookies" value="true" />
      <capability name="frames" value="true" />
      <capability name="javaapplets" value="true" />
      <capability name="supportsCallback" value="true" />
      <capability name="supportsFileUpload" value="true" />
      <capability name="supportsMultilineTextBoxDisplay" value="true" />
      <capability name="supportsMaintainScrollPositionOnPostback" value="true" />
      <capability name="supportsVCard" value="true" />
      <capability name="supportsXmlHttp" value="true" />
      <capability name="tables" value="true" />
      <capability name="supportsAccessKeyAttribute" value="true" />
      <capability name="tagwriter" value="System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter" />
      <capability name="vbscript" value="true" />
