    Script Error every time I start SW 2013

    Christopher Thorn

      Every time I startup SolidWorks 2013 on my laptop I get two identical error messages appear, one on top of the other:




      The text reads:


      An error has occurred in the script on this page.


      Line: 92

      Char: 2

      Error: The value of the property 'getVertical' is null or undefined, not a Function object

      Code: 0

      URL file://C:/Program%20Files/SolidWorks%20Corp/SolidWorks/data/taskpane/common/taskPaneFuncs.js


      Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?


      Yes No


      I am currently running SolidWorks Premium 2013 x64 Edition SP3.0 on Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1. I have Internet Explorer 10 installed, although I use Chrome as my primary browser.


      The laptop is my personal computer and is the secondary activation of my SolidWorks seat. I have no script errors on my work PC, even though the software setup is virtually the same.


      I noticed this error when I installed 2013 SP2.0 as a new installation on the laptop. I repaired the installation after seeing the error, but this had no effect. I located the taskPaneFuncs.js file and deleted it and repaired the installation again, but it still didn't resolve the problem. I copied taskPaneFuncs.js off my work PC onto the latpop and still it had no effect.


      I did try messing with scripting settings in IE, and set everything to the most relaxed security I could, but this didn't affect it.


      I upgraded to SP3.0 yesterday and the problem remains.


      Searching Google for getVertical (part of a string from the error message) produces just one result that doesn't seem relevant.


      Anyone have any ideas what to do?
