    My co-worker reports that his CWARM v2 Threads window also suddenly doesn't work.  Leads me to believe it is an IT created "feature".

    Can you make sure the file name is *exactly* "threads.js" to the letter with that capitaliztion?

    Oh, the JavaScript interpreter was something I wrote so isn't affected by other updates to the OS.  Unless there is something anti-viral going on and threads.js becomes inaccessible.

    1. Yes, the file is "threads.js" exactly.  It has not changed since June 6th.  It was working this morning prior to a reboot.

    2.  Anti-viral - yeah...We have that Symantec Endpoint Protection.  I suspect that an update to that piece of crap is responsible.

    You should be able to debug this using rudimentary changes.

    Threads.js provides a set of functions but the one that's called by the IDE is called update().

    Change Threads.js's update()  to be:

    function update()
    {
      Threads.clear();
      Threads.add("TEST", 0, "", []);
    }

    You can rename old old function to something other than update() for the time being.

    When you now reload the script, do you get anything in the Threads window or is it still empty?

    Unfortunately, still blank.  I suspect that Endpoint doesn't like crossscript.exe trying to open .js files.  I bet they have marked .js files as "unsafe".

    Endpoint must have been the problem.  I complained to our IT people about this problem.  Today, I see that the Threads window is working again.  There was another application that had some issues and today, it is back to normal as well.

    Well, this is strange.  Sometimes the Threads window works and sometimes it doesn't.  I am not really sure what is going on with it.
