GWT not working on Internet explorer 7 (IE7) giving "Element not found" JavaScript error

[Solved] Issue can be solved by correcting the Windows registry.

GWT web application started to give "Element not found" JavaScript error message on Internet Explorer 7 (IE7)? This application worked fine on Internet Explorer 6 and Firefox 2. Now your best guess would be; GWT not working on IE 7 properly. Wasn't it?

Situation becames confusing and unbelievable because your application worked fine on IE7 in some machines while not on some others.
Have you faced this issue?

Solution

This issue can be fixed by a making a change on windows registry.

Steps to follow are;
  1. Open up the Registry editor by typing regedit on command prompt.
  2. Look for the key shown below
     
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TypeLib\{EAB22AC0-30C1-11CF-A7EB-0000C05BAE0B}\1.1\0\win32
    
  3. Click on the "Default" row and see the value there.
    If it's value is "C:\WINDOWS\system32\shdocvw.dll", then that is what causes the above mentioned issue.
    If you have installed Windows in a different drive; C:\ must be replaced with the that letter.
  4. Replace that value with "C:\WINDOWS\system32\ieframe.dll".
  5. Now restart IE7, and load your GWT application.
