I cannot download from this link http://www.borland.com/products/downloads/download_together.html and I believe I have all my JavaScript permissions correctly set

http://www.borland.com/products/downloads/download_together.html this works on some machines that I own, but not others?  why please help me resolve.  Also for some strange reason I cannot view source or save the target webpage to try to look at code and debug.

you may wanna check whether the security settings for internet are the same on all the machines. also, are they all part of the same domain/workgroup, are you local admin on all machines or other etc.?
what browser and OS are you using?

cheers,

they are both running XP Pro sp2, browser versions are the same, and i have restored default IE6 settings on both machines.  Works on one, not on the other.  Mysterious?

Try disabling any firewalls

make sure your browser is closed before you disable the firewall

are the two on the same segment and workgroup, with the same permissions. how do you connect to the internet, do you have a router, or is one of the PC's your gateway?

also: since SP2 the internet firewall is enabled by default, so go for what tosh9ii says.

another thingy to check for is port filtering in your NIC's properties.

cheers,

Hi

I would first go with trying to repair Internet Explorer before doing a repair installation.

To do a IE6 repair, click start, run, type in the open box "rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 %windir%\Inf\ie.inf" without the quotes. Or you can search for the file ie.inf on your harddrive and right click -> install. Be sure to have your Windows XP CD handy. Have a look at http://www.theeldergeek.com/repair_ie6.htm .

To do a repair installation, boot with your Windows XP CD, on the welcome screen choose to install windows XP. It will search for previous installations and then if it finds the installation of Windows XP on your hard drive you should press "r" to do a repair. The installation will run through. For a detailed procedure have a look at http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=315341 .

You should also try for do a SFC /scannow on the command prompt just to see if all your system files are still good.

Hope this helps.

Is IE really broken? Checked the cookie settings?

I had a user complain to me that since I applied SP2 to their computer their "training website" didn't work.

In Internet Explorer:
Tools -> Internet Options, Choose the Privacy Tab, and then Click Sites.
In the Address box, fill in http://www.borland.com/ and then click on allow.

Now close IE and try browsing to the link again.

Cheers

Line: 228

The specified module could not be found.

do you want to continue running scripts on this page? YES NO
I also tried repairing the IE6 installation, and that reported no errors, neither did verifying the windows XP installation, everything looks fine.
but I get these odd errors
