#include <IE.au3>
$ie = _IECreate( "http://cyberzerocool.com", 0, 1, 1 )
ConsoleWrite( _IEBodyReadHTML( $ie ) )
_IEQuit( $ie )

It's very weird?

hum? You know what I have just noticed?

I just installed IE7 a few days ago and when I run this script, it opens ie6 and not 7 but opens my default browser which is firefox.

So it must be that IE7 BLOWS, I am going to uninstall it again.

thanks

AFAIK You can't successfully install ie7 and keep your original ie6 without a lot of pain - shared files, etc..

Upgrade IE to IE7, or not... :whistle:

Option 1. Download MSVM[free] - or use your favorite VM - and grab the [time limited] XP+IE6 image.

Option 2. If you need multiple versions of IE for web testing, grab a standalone IE version (3.0, 4.01, 5.01SP2, 5.5SP2, 6.0) from evolt.org

Only thing - from a web-testing POV - is that the stand-alone versions use your latest installed version of javascript.

There must be something funky going on on your machine.

The command you are executing boils down to:

$o_object = ObjCreate("InternetExplorer.Application")

$o_object.navigate ($s_Url)

There's no way that starts FireFox without some other crazy things happening...
