In low-bandwidth situations, repeatedly clicking objects that
trigger audio causes Internet Explorer 7 to crash. It seems that
the Shockwave plugin is crashing and taking down Internet Explorer
with it. We do not know what is causing the crash only that it does
not happen over high-bandwidth connections. The bug appears more
often when several users in a single physical location run the
courseware while sharing the same bandwidth.
A zip file with a simple dir, dcr and htm file to reproduce
the bug can be found here:
which shockwave plugin?... there are now two - one for D11
and the other for older versions...
which version of Director?
which OS and service pack?
I've just tested it on my Intel Quad Core Q6700 Vista
Ultimate 32-bit SP1 in IE7 running just the DCR (.htm pages default
to Firefox for me)... and repeatedly clicked on the black button to
repeat the audio but IE7 did not crash.
