Python compatibility issue with Windows Developer Preview

Ryan Wells (MP Tech Consulting LLC)

Hello Python Developers,

 

I am a Program Manager with the Ecosystem Engineering team at Microsoft. We are tracking a issue with Python 3.2.2 on Windows Developer Preview when using Internet Explorer. 

 

At //BUILD/ in September, Microsoft announced the availability of the Windows Developer Preview, which includes IE10. We encourage you to download the Windows Developer Preview (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/apps/br229516) and to begin testing.

 

I’d like to connect directly with a developer on the project so that we can work closesly to resolve this issue.

 

Regards,

 

Ryan Wells

Is there any public bug tracker or other information for this on your end? Sounds weird.

There aren't many Windows devs around here, but while I'm one of them, I don't currently have the bandwidth to devote to getting a Windows 8 setup and working on this issue at the time. I think your best bet would be to post as much information as you have and we can go from there, either from myself or anyone available.

If you think you've nailed down a specific issue in Python, http://bugs.python.org is our bug tracker.

How would one use Python 3.2.2 with Internet explorer? It would be possible with the pywin32 extensions, but then the correct place for support would be the pywin32 bug tracker and mailing lists (as they're not part of core Python).

I took the original message as Python is screwing up because Internet Explorer is running, which is ridiculous.

Until they follow up with details, I think there's nothing to see here.

Re: Python compatibility issue with Windows Developer Preview

Ryan Wells (MP Tech Consulting LLC)

Hello,

 

I apologize for the confusion or if this is the wrong mailing listing, I wanted to get in contact with someone before I sent the bug information that I have.  We do not have a public bug tracking system that I can direct you to.  Based on preliminary testing, the following compatibility issue has been identified:

 

Reference #: 70652

Description of the Problem: The application Python Module Doc is automatically closed when Internet Explorer 10 is closed.

Steps to Reproduce:

1.       Install Windows Developer Preview

2.       Install Python 3.2.2

3.       Launch Module Doc.  Start Menu -> All Program -> Python -> Manual Docs

4.       Click on the button open browser

5.       It should open the site http://localhost:7464/ In Internet Explorer 10 and the contents should be displayed

6.       Should be able to view list of Modules, Scripts, DLLs, and Libraries etc.

7.       Close Internet Explorer

 

Expected Result: Internet Explorer 10 should only get closed and we should be able to work with the application Module Doc.

Actual Result: The application Module Doc is closed with Internet Explorer 10.

 

Developer Notes: There is likely a difference in return values between IE8 and IE9/10 when launched from the app.

 

Please let me know if you have an estimated timeframe to address this issue, and if our team can further assist in this process.

 

Regards,

 

Ryan Wells

No idea about an estimated time frame, but I've entered
http://bugs.python.org/issue13101 into our tracker so we don't lose
the issue and its details in our inboxes. If you're interested in
tracking the results of any discussion or fixes, you could add
yourself to the "nosy" list on that bug report (you'd have to register
or use OpenID).

If it is just a difference in return value like you suspected, the fix
is probably pretty easy. The bigger barrier is just finding time to
get a Windows 8 setup.

Thanks for the report.
