microsoft script editor

Hi,
I was using "microsoft script editor" to debug my JavaScript.
Something happened an now it dows not work, when an error occures I get the message if I want to open the Script-Debugger, I click Yes and the browser hangs (I see a small rectangle on the top left).
So I want to reinstall the "Microsoft Script Editor", but I see that it can be installed only from Office XP and I have Office 2007. Where can I find it as a standalone program?

The Microsoft Script Editor is provided in the Microsoft® Office XP applications. I think there is no stand alone component and so  you can do a custom installation.

So what can I do?
How do I get it?
Currently I have no way to debug my application.

I think you can go with Microsoft® Office XP Custom installation so that only MSE is installed

I don't have the Microsoft® Office XP.
I read that what I need is the MSE7.EXE that is located in:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\MSE7.EXE
Maybe you have it?

I was just googling for your query and found this

http://www.open-a-socket.com/index.php/2008/04/30/stuck-without-a-script-editor-try-mse7exe/

For me its C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\OFFICE12\MSE7.exe

NB: When I tried to search, it did NOT come up .. so I manually went to the path and found.

Hope this helps !!!

Hi masterpass,
I don't see any link there to download the MSE7.exe
I searched the WEB (for many hours) and found many places that say as if they have a link to download it, but they did not.
I will appreciate it very much if you can send it to me (I am desperate).
My email is: shlomo@vapisoft.com

VapiSoft,

It is not a link to download the MSE7.exe. What I am trying to tell is that MSE7 is INSTALLED in the OFFICE 2007 also. Please read the article carefully rather than looking for links.

I verified with my system which is also running on OFFICE 2007. The path is

C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\OFFICE12\MSE7.exe

In your system, just go to the above FilePath and you can see the MSE7.exe

Hi masterpass,
Of course I looked for it in my OFFICE12 folder (under Microsoft Office 2007) but I did not find it there.

I cannot send you the MSE7.exe as it is just a EXE file and all dependents need to be installed. I would suggest to install the Office 2007 once more time and see .. When you install give the FULL install

Sorry, I reinstalled it with everyhing and it was not installed.
Please send it.

masterpassCommented:
what is your OS ?
Vista/Win7/XP ?
32/64 bit ?

Please understand ... exe files without the dependents won't work !!!!!

I belive you but I am desperate.
Please note that it worked on my computer so I think that I have all the depndencies.
Something hapens and now it just hangs.
When I have a bug in the JavaScript, it pops the message if I want to ender the debugger.
After I click on Yes it just hangs.
Please send it and let me try.

Hi masterpass,

Now I found something very important.
I found my origional MSE7.EXE in another folder (and I can double-click on it, no problem).
I found it in the registry with a parameter:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE12\MSE7.EXE /JITDebug

So now the quesion is why it hangs when it is called from the IE ???

MSE7.exe had some issue with VISTA and IE7. Make sure you have the relevant updates

Good news.
Finally I manage to make it work again.
The secret was to place the command "debugger;" in the code.
It stopped and asked me what if I want to make the Script Editor" my debugger.
Thanks for all the Help;

glad that it worked ....

VapiSoftAuthor Commented:
Now that it worked, I realized that this is not the debugger that I used.
It is not very good.
So I am back to trying to understand what was this debugger and how did I install it.
