Thank you. Glitches are probably because of directx, opengl etc issues.

I was hoping to get help fixing the plugin in before I cleaned everything up and create interface for homepage and search provider etc..

This version contains packed IE files, the final version will source them from install.wim

Not sure what the glitch is from maybe tabbed browsing? Will look into it more when I have time, very hopeful to find fix for this to upload this to the plugin section

**Edit: Fixed reg overwrite warnings in above plugin.

IF during testing if IE freezes/glitches in a loop, just grab the window and drag it out of the way then use Taskmgr to kill process... It keeps taking focus and makes regular windows function impossible but you CAN move the window out of the way... :thumbsup:

***Plugin updated in original post

Test plugin in original post is now fixed to load pages correctly. (Thanks noelBlanc for pointing me in the right direction)  :great:


My goals for getting the rest of this plugin finished and eventually moving it to the plugin section are as follows:


Get video to play correctly (HTML5/Flash) - Example: youtube videos
Make compatible with x86/x64 10PESE
Source all needed files from install.WIM instead of packed files Done
Check registry keys to make sure all references are present or included in plugin if not present in basic build.
Add homepage option to plugin interface Done
Add search provider option to plugin interface Done

Files found so far that need to be added:
System32\Macromed\*.*  <-- Flash files ~24mb - Moving these in place with existing keys does not solve video issue by itself..
Done

If anyone has anything to add or would like to contribute please feel free...

This is enough to me to add to project server.  :great:

+
I can handle regoverwrite on plugin before put to server  :thumbsup:

I advise you to check other IE related plugins.

*
HomePage see:
Gena\Components\Core\1 System\IE Settings
-->
If you can check plugin and figure out compatibility with SE, I will be glad to put it to \Downloads\  :thumbsup:

*
Flash see:
Downloads\ComponentsY\IE Flash (ActiveX only)
(also available at Win7PESE and Win8PESE)

Flash not urgent at all.
Keep in mind, IE flash uses different file than FireFox (in the past, probably still)

+
This may give you fun time
Downloads\ComponentsY\Internet Favorites

I can not join party, only following forum for now..... work time...
I hope above helps.... :turtle:

More work (Homepage and search provider) tomorrow.. :sleep:

Updated plugin in original post.  New Features: Ability to set the Home Page, and ability to switch between default search providers from interface.

Next I think I will add Favorites  :wink: and hopefully someone can help with video but until then I will keep trying...Also I will eventually add more search providers as development continues, right now you are able to select from between Bing or Google..

Hi.

I downloaded your plugin to test and managed it to work playing video. Also it is more stable without random crashes.

I've tested here with a default build, x64, full copy and testing in VM. It works fine, no crashes or freezes.

I'll do more tests and I'll share if I find something else. Hope this helps.

Files Required attached below.

Is there anything else you changed?  I tried adding the files in your list to the existing plugin and still cannot get video to play correctly..

Hi Bob.

Thank you too. Plugin works fine. Tested here and IE is great.  :great:

Yes, I was doing some tests here and I saw these two files too. Also Found more dependencies when doing tests with videos and downloads.

File list attached below.

Hi Bob.

Testing here I've found that Internet Options > F12 Developer Tools is not working. To fix this copy the folder "F12" to system32.

I don't know how useful this tool is, so it's up to you to implement or not.

Added F12 option

Added Yahoo! and DuckDuckGo to search provider list... (Now offers Bing, Google, Yahoo!, or DuckDuckGo)

Would have posted this sooner but I was working on getting shockwave to work with no luck..very close but for now the plugin is working very well without it..

Also confirmed flash is working perfectly now...

Plugin updated in original post to v3

Hi bob.omb
Would it be possible to make one of the Edge browser? I like its design but I think that in the base it depends on the Internet explorer.
Regards  :thumbsup:

hi tiek,

   Edge browser uses the modern UI.  No one has gotten this working yet, it doesn't seem easy.  But as soon as I can find a good place to start I'll open a thread and pray for help  :lol:

IE is a feature of windows not just a program(one of the reasons i put it in my "MyPlugins_Direct\Components" section), and in general, several things seem to depend on IE which is why I think we needed this plugin for further progress in other areas.  It is a very small step though..
