    'My Pictures' produces I.E. Script Error

    When I try to open a photo in Win Me desktops's "My Pictures," result is not a photo but an Error window titled "Internet Explorer Script Error," the main line of which is: "WiaMgr.Devices.Length is null or not an object." Error window also shows "URL: file://C:WINDOWSWebImgView.htt" plus "Line: 103" -- "Character: 13" -- Code: 0".
    Does this mean anything to anyone? Tried MS Knowledge Base but one solution suggested did not work.
    If possible, please reply direct: writerboba@yahoo.com

    THANX!

    What are you trying to open the photo with?
    What is it's extentsion? (.jpg, .gif etc.)
    Is it just one particular file, or any?

    Re: 'My Pictures' produces I.E. Script Error

    LEIF: Thanx for jumping in. To clarify -- I am using default "My Pictures" folder on Desktop in Win ME. When opened, it should (but doesn't) show pix as thumbnails. Also offers image preview or, when click on image, a large view. Of course, none of these features is operative now.
    ----Pix are .jpg.
    ----Problem occurs soon as "My Pictures" opens; not associated with particular file.

    Hopefully it is simply this:

    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-GB;q275557&GSSNB=1>Internet Explorer Script Error Message When You Open the My Pictures Folder (Q275557)</A>

    If not, there are a few other things we can investigate.

    LEIF: Good try. Unfortunately I'd already found that in Knowledge Base and it made no difference. In fact, TweakUI couldn't make that icon switch happen, either.
    Next.....????

    Re: 'My Pictures' produces I.E. Script Error

    OK. I'm having difficulty getting into the KB right now, but as you seem to know your way there, it would probably be more efficient for you to duplicate my search on ME, searching for 'my pictures'. I got about 25-30 returns, but none seemed as promising as the one I referred you to.

    Has this problem just recently started?
    You are showing as running IE6 - is this a recent upgrade?
    If so, any new software or upgrades installed around that time?
    (Anti-virus software - even new definitions - has taken the blame for many a problem, sometimes justifiably, sometimes not)
    Made any changes to your active desktop?
    Do you have problems saving/copying new pictures to the 'my pictures' folder?
    Can you view/open pictures in other folders?

    LEIF: Sorry it's taken so long for me to respond. Answers to your questions:
    -- Problem's not new; months old; just decided to
    revist it in hopes someone could help. Microsoft
    tech some months ago worked w/ me for about an
    hour w/ no success.
    -- Problem predates install of 6.0
    -- No other problems whatsoever w/ saving/copying pix
    to 'my pictures.'
    -- Same for viewing/opening pix elsewhere.

    This problem w/ Internet Explorer script error happens ONLY in My Pictures on Desktop. All other photo
    operations work perfectly.
