Javascript Openwin after Q328970
IE6 XP Q328970 Javascript Openwin

Ever since applying the above update from Microsoft my browser (IE6 on XP Pro) errors out whenever it tries to open a window called by Javascript openwin.

Was perfectly fine before the update, all else appears as OK as it ever is with usoft software.

Error returned is "The specified module cannot be found".

Any ideas?

Welcome to the forum, malckam.

Openwin is not a 'native' javascript method - so I assume it is a user constructed function, perhaps part of a library of such functions. It's up to the website to serve up the function definition - and apparently it's not there. But updates to your client system shouldn't enter into the picture.

What's more likely is that the update changed your browser's Security or Privacy options to a higher level. Look under Explorer's TOOLS > INTERNET OPTIONS and poke around for places where either new windows or scripting may have been disabled.

Hi Tedster,

Thanks vm for the welcome. Very interesting site that you have here, lots of good stuff.

In relation my problem I went thru everything, even tried setting to minimum security but got knowhere. Problem actually got worse in that child windows opened by normal href links were not spawning properly.....

In the end I reloaded IE6 with SP1 and the problem has now gone away.
