See more: WinForm webbrowser

I have a web browser object in one of my forms.

When I open the form and try and load this URL .... '' the application crashes.

The same thing happens when the application is compiled and installed on a different machine and the above URL is loaded.

But if I try and load '' in the same form the application does NOT crash.

The same thing happens if I try and load the pages within the Visual Studio 2008 environment; crashes for BBC but good for

I am loading the page like so... WebBrowser1.Navigate("").

Up until a month or so ago I had no issues.

Operating System - Windows 7 64 bit and IE9 installed

Does any one have any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Solution 1

It works fine for me - I placed a WebBowser on my form, added a button, and pasted your line of code into the Click event handler:
void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
Click the button, the page laods, my app is fine.

Check your WebBrowser event handlers - you may have a problem there, or in unrelated code.

Apologies for the delay in replying.

Your code worked fine once I put it in a new project.

The issue seemed to be with the initial project.

In the end I created a new project and copied all the files across.

That seemed to cure it.

Slightly disconcerting that I had to do this.

Many thanks for your help.
