"an error has occured on the script on this page"
line: 1344
char: 1
error: unspecified error
code: 0
URL: res://C:\Windows\System32\shdoclc.dll/preview.dlg

Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?

Do you also have problems printing from IE?
This appears to be a corrupt dll file.  Start-Run-SFC /scannow should fix it.
One proposed solution -

I have ran SFC/scannow which didn't work.

I have looked in the registry but there is no folder called internet explorer under microsoft.

I found one possible fix from a forum somewhere, havent tried it so cannot guarantee success

Yes, I believe this cropped up with XP service pack 1 when it came out...
Have you downloaded all of the patches,etc. from Windows update?
Otherwise if no go you could go into IE internet options/advanced and uncheck "Enable third party browser extensions" and restart. That will fix it, unfortunately it will also nuke your Google toolbar and such...
Sorry this is a vague workaround but I had that trouble a while ago now!!
Hope this helps.

I am on SP1 with all patches.

I tried the "enable third party browser extensions" but it didn't work.

Another thing that happens is that if i try a print preview it tells me print preview is unavailable for HTML formatted items. If i am sent a rich text or plain text email i can print those off, but most people send it in HTML format.

Did you try running from the Run command :
RunDLL32.EXE setupwbv.dll,IE6Maintenance
to do an IE6 Repair and Maintenance?
If it errors out, click on details and find out which DLLs are incompatible. Get a copy of the right version DLLs from another machine. Copy them over to a temp directory on the machine in question. Boot into Safe Mode with Command Prompt. Rename the incorrect version DLLs and copy the new DLLs. Reboot.

This fixed my problem. Hope it helps.

You typed in

RunDLL32.EXE setupwbv.dll,IE6Maintenance

exactly as it appears above? I recommend cut and paste. It looks like you had a typo.

I did cut and paste it. I have also tried the command on my home PC and it does the same (which is XP home edition)

Sorry... forgot you were running XP. The above works on W2K. The only other thing I can think of is to try to go back to your original version of IE that came with the install. You can do this by Start|Run

rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 %windir%\Inf\ie.inf

You'll need your original XP CD. Hope this helps.

Verify the following registry entries exist.  If they do not, create them and then reboot.  Keep in mind that you may need to adjust permissions on the key your creating/modifying to allow you to enter the correct values.

PS.  @ is equivalent to (default) when looking through the registry.

I only had the first two of the registry entries. I added the other 6 and rebooted and now the printing works.

Spot on.

Thank you very much.

No problem.  I had the exact same experience with a client of mine.

I have a very similar problem, that appears as well on my Win2K machine as on my XP-Pro system. I get exactly the same error message but i get it for line 640!

I tried the solution of bakermat and found all entries on my computers. Still can't print.

Any idea?

I am having the same problem with "Do you want to continue running scripts......etc."
Tried running from the Run command suggestion...I have Windows XP home edition and am still in the learning stage.  I have no idea what "registry" means.  I do have original CD but it won't run when I try reinstalling.  What am I doing wrong?  I probably need baby steps....

I am also having the same problem that I need fixed as soon as possible. The computer is running W2K and Outlook XP. It does not give line, character or code information in the scripts error. All it states when trying to print from Outlook is An error has occured in this dialog. Error:29. Unspecified error. I tried all the above fixes with no luck.

If the error is not the same as the error at the beginning of this thread, the fix listed in this thread probably won't work.  I would continue searching for the answer.

This post is to let anyone searching know what fixed me. I had the exact same problem, and the only thing that worked for me was to run the following command: rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 %windir%\Inf\ie.inf

Restarted IE, worked like a charm. Could now print HTML mails from Outlook also.
