Servlet to generate HTA

Is anybody else here using a servlet to create an HTA (html application)? Thanks to security issues in Internet Explorer, we had to change one of our main programs to use an HTA for delivering high-stakes certifications. Overall, this is working out great.

However, for myself, and most of our international users, the behavior of the HTA is very inconsistent. Although it never works for me, many of our international users get it to work sometimes, and sometimes it bombs out on them. The usual problem is either that the application freezes up. Or the HTA throws a scripting error.

If this sounds familiar to anybody, I could sure use some help. I've got one very irate client and dozens of unhappy users, and no answers at this point.

Thanks!

William

take the generated HTA from one call that works and one that doesn't and compare them.
See if there are differences. Check if both work when used as static HTAs.

If there are differences see if you can explain those to cause the trouble, and you have your error.

Jeroen, this was very enlightening. We called it "searching the error" in the olde days.
