Internet Explorer 8 developer tools debugging on Windows XP

Although , Microsoft officially not going support Windows XP  but still many healthcare companies preferred to use windows XP internally. They buy windows 7 laptop and convert to Windows XP.This sounds funny but it true.

I was trying to use IE’s Developer tools(F12) to debug one of JavaScript issue found that “jscript.dll” has to be registered explicitly    to your machine.

Level of Care - Developer Tools_2011-11-17_14-38-13

even if i have IE8 and javsascript enabled on browser it was not stopping on breakpoint.

Solution : register jscript.sll
type “regsvr32 jscript.dll” on command prompt and your good to go.
