v2.13.7 Temporary Internet Explorer bug work-around
August 12, 2014 at 10:56:36 PM
 
I just updated the freePatternWizard so it helps newer Internet Explorer users.  A problem cropped up awhile ago when Microsoft updated Internet Explorer and WIndows.  They introduced a bug which causes the browser/computer to hang when trying to upload a file and receive a different file back.

I tested it and found that Windows 7 with Internet Explorer versions 10 and 11 had the problem.  Also Windows 8.0 with Internet Explorer 10.  Windows 8.1 with Internet Explorer version 11 seemed to work fine.

SO...

I just added a temporary and sloppy fix so systems don't crash any more and people can get their patterns.  If you're using Windows 7 with Internet Explorer 10 or 11, or Windows 8.0 with Internet Explorer 10, you'll be able to fill in the freePatternWizard page as usual.  When you click on the "Let's See My Pattern" button, your image will be uploaded and then you'll see a page mentioning this temporary fix, along with a link on which you can click, and you'll then see your pattern.  At this point you can save your pattern.  When you're done, you can close the pattern tab and click on the "Return to the freePatternWizard" link to go back to the PatternWizard.

Like I say, it's cumbersome but until Microsoft fixes the bug, this is the best fix.

As soon as I get word that they released a new update, I'll give it a few days or a week, then turn off this temporary fix and you won't have to go through this extra step anymore.

Let me know if there are any other version combinations of Windows/Internet Explorer that have a problem.

And with any luck, I didn't introduce any new problems to non-Internet Explorer users! Foot in Mouth
