Been struggling with this error a couple a times now, it has been reappearing with months in between and everytime I keep forgetting how its solved.
Now the error message appears like this:
If you look into init.js at the indicated line you will find:
if (browseris.ie5up && browseris.win32)
//@if (@_jscript_version >=5)
//@ IMNControlObj=new ActiveXObject("Name.NameCtrl.1");
//@ } catch(e)
Googling this script mostly resolves to error in environments where user is on anonymously and therefore cannot except OnlinePresence to work, which this basically is. But in the environment I work in, we use communicator and is authenticated, so it should work.
Resolution: it’s EASY – run office diagnostics (located in start -> Microsoft Office -> Microsoft Office tools – > Microsoft Office Diagnostics)
Update 03-22-2010: The following error is also often seen when opening document templates from our internal MOSS, same solution….
