"A Runtime Error has occurred. Do you wish to debug" error while accessing a website using the Notes 8.x Standard Embedded browser

Technote (troubleshooting)


When accessing a particular website using the Notes 8.x Standard Embedded Browser, the following error occurs:


It was determined that this error would only occur, if the Internet Explorer 7.0 setting, "Disable script debugging (Internet Explorer)" was not enabled. In addition, this error would not occur on workstations running Internet Explorer 6.0.

Starting in Notes 8.x build, the Standard Client's embedded browser adopts Microsoft's Internet Explorer core on Windows platform as its rendering engine. This is why modifying the "script debugging" setting in Internet Explorer stopped the error from occurring within the Notes 8.x embedded browser.

Resolving the problem

The "Runtime..." error was reproduced when accessing the same website using Internet Explorer 7.0, and was later found to be a problem with Internet Explorer 7.0.
