Using vs2008 and c#.

In my development enironment I have 2 website with identical folder structure. And my master pages for
both website are almost similar.

In both the application I have some javascript referenced for counting the number of characters entered as follows:

 <script type="text/javascript" src='<%# Page.ResolveUrl("~/Javascript/textcounter.js") %>'> </script>

It works perfectly fine in one website. However in the other website onkeypress it was trying the javascript function
and it gives the following error.
      Microsoft JScript runtime error: Object expected

I am not sure why it is working on one website and not on the other.

Both VS2008 and the 2 website are all on the same machines.

Looks like it is something specific to a website.

This happens when debugging application using IE. When I ran in Chrome it is not displaying the error.

Is there any issues in webconfig files? All my reference are ok.

It is was working ok 2 days ago and I did not install anything.

Any input is appreciated.
