document.evaluate is not supported in IE (up to IE 10, not sure about 11). Use jQuery, Sizzle or some other library.

there is this[^] for IE only if you're willing to torture your self :)

If this helps please take time to accept the solution. Thank you.

I am using ExecuteScript method in VS cuit to execute Javascript code. It is working fine in chrome and Firefox but not in IE. Can you help me to get element by XPath in IE11?

It is still javascript. Read my solution, either use one of the libraries or set the code so it detects which browser is calling and go to working code (I provided you with the link)
