IE 3.0.1 doesn't run anymore
Posted on 1997-06-19
Here's a puzzle that somebody may be able to help me with:
I've been running IE 3.0.1 for Mac since it came out. I'm running a Powerbook520c/PPC with 24megs RAM and System 7.6.1. Yesterday, all of the sudden, IE won't run anymore. It gets just past Loading Favorites, and then either quits
with an error type 2 or (with MacsBug installed) a "PowerPC unmapped memory exception at 03F44C74" (Actually, I've found the memory space varies, depending on what's running, etc.). I've done a StdLog in MacsBug if that would help anyone. I'm running lots of extensions to the system, but IE has worked fine until a few days ago (it even worked fine earlier that day). I haven't changed anything on the system that should make a difference (no new extensions/control panels, no new hardware added/removed, etc.), so I'm really
puzzled. I've tried running with and without VM/RAMDoubler. I've tried re-installing IE from scratch (even removing the Preferences folder and the Libraries in the Extensions folder along with Internet Preferences from Internet Config). Nothing has changed it.
