    Application clashes with IE5

    Locked

    by sanjay.oza ·

    I have an accounts consolidation/reporting application (Hyperion Enterprise 4.6XA)that fails to run (I get a Dr Watson error)after I installed IE5. If I go back to IE4 it works perfectly. Hyperion say I have to upgrade to version 4.7 but surely there must be a way round this. Can any body help or suggest a solution? I want to have IE5!

      You can not have it both ways. The reason they make upgrades is to ensure compatibility
      and sometimes newer is not always better. Upgrade for the sake of getting a “newer version” is just plain bogus. If you like what you have and it runs well stay with it, if you just have to have IE v5.0 then upgrade the application. I vote for stay with what works 🙂 good luck

      Each time you have a major upgrade to a software package, the core DLL’s change. Sometimes the updates are minor and they remain backwards compatible, more often than not, they do not.

      It seems to me the programmer of your software is calling a function of a DLL that has been updated in IE 5.0 (probally related to windowing or displaying a property). Since the DLL has been updated the old function may have been deleted, renamed, or had its options changed.

      If you try to mix and match the DLL (which is a very complicated process), you will end of hosing your box. Either Upgrade or suffer with the previous version. Also you could try another application (Netscape 4.5, Opera, etc..)
