location.href NOT working in IE7

Hi Folks,

I have this line of code

Content.location.href = "m1_0010.htm";

where Content is the name of the Frame

It works fine in IE6 but would NOT work in IE7

Update, I just realized that it works fine when I access thru the webbrowser, but DOES NOT work from a CD ROM

Any ideas why it would not work in IE7



function returnToBookmark( lastpage ) {
	var counter =  WM_readCookie("strNavCounter");
	Navigation.count = counter ;
	var this_location = window.location;
	var this_pathname = this_location.pathname;
	var new_pathname  = "";
	// split on /
	var dirs = this_pathname.split('/');
	// set filename (last value) to the lastpage we got
	dirs[dirs.length-1] = lastpage;
	for ( var i=0; i < dirs.length; i++ ) {
		new_pathname = new_pathname  + "/" + dirs[i];
	// remove first character
	new_pathname = new_pathname.slice(1);
	// set the location parameter with the new pathname
	// and apparently jump to the page
	//this_location.pathname = new_pathname;
	Content.location.href = new_pathname;
