IE and .Net version compatibility

Oct 5, 2009 at 9:36 PM

I have been trying to troubleshoot an install of Wax Runner on a Windows XP client.  Currently the client runs XP SP2 with IE7 and .Net 3.5.  When I attempt to run a known good excel test script, Wax Runner fails and spawns a series of about:blank windows, one for each test step.  The results pane notes that a file could not be found, "...could not load file or assembly "Microsoft.mshtml".  The same script runs successfully on a different client machine, the only difference is the second client uses IE6.  Is there way to use this with IE7?

Pretty sure WaxRunner works with IE7, must be something else that is causing a problem. Can you post the full error message?
