  • Web Browser Control Not Working

    I have spent hours building an application in Auto Play Media Studio and have run into a small problem with the web browser control. I can load a local web page ( c:\somepage.html ) and it works fine, but if I try to load an external page ( http://www.google.com ) then all I get is a page can not be found error. I tried running the sample file from the documentation and that does not work either. I really need to figure out what it is that I am doing wrong. Can anyone help ?

    Hi. Try starting a new project using the web browser template and see how it's setup... Maybe it's your firewall...

      I tried creating a new project using the web browser template and it still does not work. The url that I am trying to open is http://localhost/index.html I have tried running the project on both windows xp and on windows .net standard server. seems very weird. the other thing that i noticed is that AMS says that i am not connected to the internet when i try to check for updates. could this be a problem on my local pc ?

        If you try to go to the same address with Internet Explorer,, do you get the same error? If so, that would rule out AMS.

          Try linking to a regular web address such as http://www.indigorose.com. Have you got your http://localhost/index.html to work in IE by itself?

            Worm's right, that's a good test. But anyhow the preferred method of accessing local html files is via their path. So in other words if you are trying to get to c:\apache\htdocs\index.html then use that, it'll work fine...

              Certainly is. Using localhost would require you to be running a web server locally.

                  Yeah I figured it was a firewall, happened over here before too. [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Glad to hear it's fixed...
