I am battling to create certain client side objects within my browser (IE5) eg:
set test = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
whereas this doesn't:
set test = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Included in the list of objects that don't work is Windows Scripting Components I have created myself.
Does anyone have any ideas or workarounds?
well, if they're you're own objects, then it could always be faulty coding. ;)
Acutally, you should also consider that you're using a specific language which generally isn't cross-browser compatible. Are you sure that your target audience uses Internet Explorer, no exceptions? Otherwise, many things that are VBScript or Windows Scripts will not work.
Just a helpful hint. As for the coding problem, I don't have many ideas on how to solve it. Sorry.
Hope this helped, however little. :)
I may be wrong but i thought you couldn't use file system objects on the client side as a security thing, wouldn't want people messing with files on our comps through web pages.
Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") is valid on the server side tho methinks... not done ASP / VBScript for some time now.
