    After installing IE7 RC1 I see that version 5.7.0.5700 of jscript.dll is
    loaded
    (via Msinfo32: Software Environment > Loaded Modules). Searching
    microsoft.com for "5.7.0.5700" does not yield any hits. The latest version I
    can find mention of is 5.6.0.8831. Even a Google search on "5.7.0.5700" only
    yields 2 hits. Can someone confirm (an MVP perhaps) that 5.7.0.5700 is a
    legitimate version of jscript.dll?

    I wonder if this new version is the reason so many script errors have been
    seen, for example, with Norton products.
    Thanks

  2. Depends on what you mean by confirm. It's the version I have on WinXP SP2
    with IE7 RC1 and I can't think of where else it could come from.

    Thanks Frank,
    I take your point but it seems strange that there is no mention of
    5.7.0.5700 on the Microsoft sites and, if you want to download Windows
    Script, it is still version 5.6.0.8831 that's offered for XP SP2. I'm also
    pretty sure it's legitimate and am pursuing it because of script problems in
    NIS 2006 as described in my previous thread. Needless to say, even though my
    IE7 is RC1 an not beta, Symantecs "solution" (so far) is to reinstall IE6.

  4. First, RC1 is still not final.
    Second, I would assume that the script engine with that number is also a
    beta that is part of the IE7 upgrade.
