I get constant "createDDSoffscreenerror" when attempting to display WebViewer to view cameras

The createDDSoffscreenerror is unique to IE8 or IE9, it is preventing the viewing of my web cameras via IE. To clear the problem I have to close program through task manager then the cameras display. This is not a problem in mozilla or chrome, however, those 2 browsers don't provide enough applets to work with. Additionally, this problem is only appearing on 2 of my computers, others are working just fine. I've attempted to compare all internet options setting to match them up to those that are working but still no success.

After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.

Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:

http://dashboard.aim.com/aim

On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.

Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM
Conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.

The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button.
The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
Follow the on-screen prompts.
images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the
Picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends.
Hope this helps. Bud

Scroll bar won't work on some e mails


You need to fix IE8 to have it work properly with GMail, by turning off Compatibility View. 1. In IE9, press the Alt key to toggle the main menu bar on first.
2. Then in IE8 or IE9 click Tools and choose Compatibility View Settings
3. Remove google.com from the big text box if it is there (in some versions it may not be.)
4. Uncheck the three checkboxes under the text box - this is very important, or Microsoft will just switch CV back on again next time you start IE.
5. Restart IE.
That should cure all your scrolling problems.
To deal with your sidebar you have three options:
1. Hover your mouse over the section you want to see to expand that part - i.e. mouse up to your labels to have them all drop down, or mouse down to the bottom to see your Chat contacts
2. Grab the bar which divides the two sections and drag it down till you can see all your labels
3. Collapse Chat till you need it by clicking the Chat bubble icon at the bottom of the side bar.

Toshiba status 4041


sinds de migratie van IE8 naar IE9 is er een foutmelding 4041 onstaan wanneer we vanuit de browser IE9 een document afdrukken op de Toshiba printer. Bij meerdere pagina's gaat het goed en regelmatig gaat het niet goed bij 1 pagina. De conclusie is duidelijk dat het in IE9 zit of toch een combinatie probleem?! Waar moeten we beginnen met zoeken?

Internet explorer 9 runtime error


Hello,

Unfortunally, your system is not compatable with IE9. I would revert back to IE8, run any updates, less IE9 upgrade, and restart your system.

If your system is not validated as a Window 7 or 64-bit system you will have issues with IE9.

Good Luck.

I build flash websites. When I upload them to the client servers - they work fine, but when Im doing test runs offline on my pc the flash files wont open in IE9. I cant design and tweek at all, because...


One problem you might be having is IE8 might be caching your flash files so instead of retrieving it from the server (or your computer) it just uses an old version in its cache. Try clearing the cache on the browser.

Have installed IE9 beta over IE8, but IE 9 beta dont have flash point to play video on 32 bit vista. is it OK to upgrade to IE 10 or can be deleted and install IE 8 or 7


If you installed IE9 beta over IE8 you can roll back to IE8 from Add or remove programs in control pannel. Is better to choose a stable version of any program, not Beta because beta is in teste mode and is not certified that is working with any software and addons.
