Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-11753) Removal of Windows 8.0 code breaks some types of Windows 8.1 devices
Date Wed, 24 Aug 2016 14:20:20 GMT


Sergey Shakhnazarov commented on CB-11753:

[~robert-crowell-gdit], thanks for reporting!
Could you add a console log to output {{navigator.appVersion}} inside cordova.js and see the
Javascript output log in Visual Studio?
Does this check fail inside a Windows Store app?

> In Apache Cordova (v6.3.1) WINDOWS platform code (v4.5.0-dev),  due to Issue CB-10480
) in platform.js  the final "else" clause was removed
> " // windows 8.0 + IE 10
>  -                scriptElem.src = "//Microsoft.WinJS.1.0/js/base.js";", since Windows
8.0 code was removed.
> Now, the Windows 8.1. Pro Dell Tablet I'm testing with (Internet Explorer 11), is reporting
the variable navigator.appVersion as "5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36
(KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/52.0.2743.116 Safari/537.36".   Due to that value, therefore Apache
Cordova will never load the WinJS stuff because it falls thru the logic entirely.. 
> The end results is that the application crashes when anything WinJS related is accessed
by code (when I try to do a network check, it will obviously fail), since WinJS never loaded
> Recommend having one basic final "else" clause that will either 1. Load a very basic
version to provide SOME functionality, or 2) Provide some form of loading error feedback.
 But that's just my own opinion..  
> Thanks for all the hard work and great software.
