Some VS2005 and VS2008 wizards pop up script error after installing IE8

Posted on May 30, 2009

I experienced this trouble when I tried to add a variable with a wizard in Visual Studio 2008. I never suspected IE8, but MS disappointed me again. Anyway, here is a workaround posted in Visual C++ Team Blog and it seems to work. For the details, click HERE

Please follow the following steps:

– Open regedit (on a 64-bit OS, open the 32-bit regedit)

– Under “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones“, create a new key called 1000 (if it isn’t already there)

– Under 1000, create a DWORD entry with:
o Name = 1207
o Type = REG_DWORD
o Data = 0x000000

For the workaround to work on VS2005, however, the VS2005 SP1 (and VS2005 SP1 Update for Windows Vista) has to be installed.
