Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-11753) Removal of Windows 8.0 code breaks some types of Windows 8.1 devices
Date Thu, 25 Aug 2016 18:26:20 GMT


robert-crowell-gdit commented on CB-11753:

Closing issue..  Seems the code 'alert("hello world");' crashes Windows 8.1, while in Windows
10 does nothing, works in 'browser' and Android.  I"m still having network issues, but my
application is no longer crashing on me for debugging purposes.

Sorry to bother everyone.

> 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.
