Cannot find '%ws' iexplorer


What does the "cannot find '%ws'" error mean when trying to use Internet Explorer, For example, when attempting to login to Netflix. Is there a workaround? Thanks. Marc

Probably a javascript error. Doubtful there's a workaround, but you can use Netflix in any native browser.


I've tried accessing the Netflix instant movies with Windows Firefox browser and codeeavers but get a different error. The browser becomes nonresponsive nd the cpu spikes to 100% usage.


Instant watch works in IE on Windows and Safari on Mac. Outside of that, you've got a ton of DRM garbage to deal with and Crossover can't run the DRM stuff so it's not an option to use Crossover.

Ah, makes sense. Well maybe one day Netflix will decide to become linux friendly. I was hoping crossover could bridge the gap until then, but not yet. Still wine and crossover have come far from when I first tried wine in the late 90s. Wow! I am amazed at the number of windows programs I can run on Linux these days. You guys keep up the great work!
