It's an error on line 16. Pull out the onclick="javascript:txtHidden.value = window.opener.openwindow4();" and see if it works, if it does, something is wrong with that line.

On line 16, try putting the window.opener.openwindow4(); in single quotes as shown below:

onclick="javascript:txtHidden.value = 'window.opener.openwindow4();'"

Should that be just 'window.opener.openwindow'?

the problem is with the "javascript:" in the begining of the client script.
actually if you remove it i think (i'm not sure because i can not test it right now) it will crash again :(
i suggest you to try this
remove onclick="javascript:txtHidden.value = window.opener.openwindow4();" from your aspx page

in your codebehind write this
btnOK.Attributes.Add("onclick", "txtHidden.value = window.opener.openwindow4()" )

It turns out the first poster was right, it did have to do with line 16. I found out that my openwindow4() had the issue and it had nothing to do with the specific code, the syntax was correct.
