IE7 and FreeTextBox (install error)

July 31, 2005 | Uncategorized | 0 Comments

A few weeks ago, Christopher Vaugn from the dev deam contacted me
asking me to update to support IE7’s new user agent string.
After first, I was embarassed to know that I had coded it in such a way
that it wasn’t forward compatible, but then I realized that it’s
probably better to have FreeTextBox render a fully-functional downlevel
TextArea rather than a rich editor that had broken JavaScript if IE7
changed somehow.

Yesterday, I downloaded my beta copy of IE7 from
(I’m still downloading … 2.47 GB!!), so I could do actual testing
on it before releasing a compatible version. But I got an error message
on install,

“the data area passed to a system call is too small”

IE7 install error

I have a really bad case of and need to reinstall my machine, so
I might need to rebuild before I can get it to work. If any one has any
clues as to why the install doesn’t work for me, I’d appreciate any

Hi, I'm John Dyer. In my day job, I build websites and create online seminary software for a seminary in Dallas. I also like to release open source tools including a pretty popular HTML5 video player and build tools that help people find best bible commentaries and do bible study. And just for fun, I also wrote a book on the theology of technology and media.
