VbScript and Windows 7 x64 - in IEx64 vbscript works, but not in I

I

Ian Dendle

We have a windows 7 x64 machine - a fresh install.

We created a <script language="vbscript"> tag inside a web page, with a
simple window.alert call.

In the 64 bit IE, it works. In 32-bit IE, it doesnt.

Tried to unregister and re-register the vbscript.dll in the syswow64 folder,
but not luck.

Security configuration is the same between versions.

Has anyone seen anything similar?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,
Matthew Dendle

I don't know if this will help, but I believe the preferred script
tagging is
<script type="text/vbs">. That's what I always use, anyway.

I'm having the exact same problem. We have an app that is not working on a
customer's Win7 64-bit laptop. In debugging, we created a very small HTML
page that is as follows:

<HTML>
<BODY onLoad="alert('hello world!')">
<script type="text/vbscript">
document.write("Looks like VBScript is working!")
</script>
This is my test page.
</BODY>
</HTML>

The alert message pops up; it seems javascript is working. The "Looks like
VBScript is working" message appears OK if we open the HTML in 64-bit IE8 but
not in 32-bit. Re-registering VBSCript.DLL as Matthew mentioned does not
help. Disabling add-ins does not help (including running the "no add-in"
version from System Tools.)

Appreciate any suggestions anyone can provide.

Thank you.

One more note: this code works on another machine running Win7 64-bit / IE8.
So it seems to be an issue on this machine, but I can't figure out what. All
Add-Ins have been disabled, settings checked, etc. VBScript appears to be
disabled / broken, and I haven't been able to figure out how to re-enable /
fix it.

Thank you.

Sorry, but I don't have a copy of any Win64 to test on.
I haven't worked with it to speak of. I can't imagine why
IE32 would act differently from IE64, except maybe in
terms of plugins that might only be installed for one or
the other. If I had to guess I'd say that the problem is
probably elswhere .... a faulty path or some such.
