Error running web page from workspace in OVSD 5.1

Hi,

I have added a workspace item pointing at an intranet page. When I run it I get the message "String index out of range: -1". I am not sure if this is an environmental issue or an issue in OVSD. Can anyone put some light on it?

Regards,
Mikael

Re: Error running web page from workspace in OVSD 5.1

Mikael,

I've noticed this problem with websites that require authentication. Especially SharePoint intranet sites. Normally, MS Internet Explorer authenticates the user on intranet sites "behind the scenes" through the Windows domain authenticated identity.

Try opening the same page using a different web browser (Firefox, Opera, Chrome) and notice if an authentication pop-up window appears.

My guess is the String index out of range error is SD's web browser way to tell you it is trying to process an authentication string that does not exist (string index lengths begin at 0).

Hope that helps!
