IE7 on Vista with frames: cannot display web page

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Steve Barnett, Apr 4, 2007.

  1. I'm having trouble with a Vista user who gets an "Internet Explorer cannot
    display the web page" from our app.

    The app generates an index.htm file that defines a frame set consisting of
    four frames. When the IE7/Vista user double clicks on the index.htm on
    their local PC, the four frames are displayed, but they all contain the
    'cannot display' error message. When I copied the pages to a web site, they
    all displayed correctly, so it appears to be a local issue.

    If I get the user to double click on the individual pages, they all load and
    display Ok.

    Does anyone know of any problems in this area and what I can do to get the
    system up and working again please? I've tried this out on a Vista PC at my
    location and don't get the problem, so it's difficult to play around with.

    The index.htm contains:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

    Thanks
