For some HTTP watch types, switching to the Output view causes a program crash.

UPDATE: A check has been added at start up to alert users to turn off script debugging which is causing this problem.

Symptoms:

Watch Items of type HTTP or HTTPS load very slowly. When trying to view the output of some of these types of Watch Items, the WebWatchBot Manager application will pop-up a dialog asking if I want to debug the application.


Cause:

This problem involves two issues:

  1. The Windows script debugger is installed on the same computer and script debugging is enabled.
  2. The page being monitored has a JavaScript error.


Resolution/Workaround:

To workaround the problem, you will need to change a setting for Internet Explorer:

  1. Open the control panel: Start -> Control Panel
  2. Open the Internet Options control panel applet.
  3. Select the "Advanced" tab.
  4. Under the section "Browsing", ensure the option "Disable Script Debugging" is checked.
