VB Script error

I have a POP Email notification program which displays a banner on the desktop when messages which meet certain criteria are detected on the server.  This has worked for years, until a few days ago.  I haven't modified the script, or the POP mail program's settings, so I don't know why this error appears.  I'm ignorant about VB script and could use some guidance in remedying this.  I've attached the script and a screen shot of the error (running Windows 7).Signed-Agreement.vbsError msg

Hi, is it possible you just upgraded to IE10 or IE11?  This should work in IE8 or IE9, from what I can tell.  I'll see if there's an IE10+ equivalent.

Thank you for your message.  I upgraded to IE10 more than a year ago, and then to IE 11 many months ago.  The script worked fine under IE 11 until a couple of days ago, and it still works on another machine running IE9.  Could a Microsoft Update have affected this?

OK, so just by pure luck (trying to debug it), it appears that it may be case sensitive.  Your original code didn't work for me with IE10, but this did:

    intWidth = objIE.document.parentwindow.screen.availwidth
    intHeight = objIE.document.parentwindow.screen.availheight
    intWidthW = objIE.document.parentwindow.screen.availwidth * .40
    intHeightW = objIE.document.parentwindow.screen.availheight * .15

Open in new window


which you will notice only has lowercase letters.  It seems odd, but it's worth a try.

Yes, it could be possible of version of IE modified because earlier we use to do like that.

Please find below URL IE Display

Thank you for your comment.  Are you saying that your VBS code no longer works in IE?

It does work for me after I used the lower case version.

Great! It's unusual for VBScript to be case sensitive. Something must have changed with the IE object model.

Thanks for the grade. Just a quick note, since you weren't setting the .Visible property until after that error line, you may have a heap of iexplore.exe processes running that you can't see.

If I open Internet Explorer with a link to a website, there are two iexplore.exe processes running, and they both end when the window is closed.  The same thing happens when I execute that VB script.  Thank you for the head's up.
