I have updated to version Now I cannot open the dashboard to check or change settings. I get a flash of something on the screen, then it disappeared. As well, the icon on my task bar is a muted colour... not dark like it was with version 1.x. Using WinXP with Firefox. System is fully updated.

I did see the potential solution here...

My results...
1) Workstation Service is running
2) 3) I set the checkbox 'Turn off advanced text services...'

After I set the checkbox in 2 & 3, I attempted to load the Secunia Dashboard from my taskbar by Right-Clicking on the Secunia icon and selecting Open Secunia PSI.

Now the program is trying to load the Microsoft Script Editor. The following question is asked... "Do you want to debug using the selected debugger?"
I answer NO to the question 8 times and am able to access the Secunia Dashboard.

If I answered YES to the question "Do you want to debug using the selected debugger?"...
... I enter the Microsoft Script Editor and get stuck at the following line (line 4781)...

this.interval = setInterval(aulink.periodic,1000);

Please advice...

Might be worth trying to update to version It is a bug fix update not associated with your issue but still perhaps worth a try.

Link here:


Microsoft Surface 4 Intel i7 64Bit
Windows 10 Pro version 1809 Build 17763.404
IE & Edge Only

Hi dragonfly888:

I think the workarounds you tried with the Workstation service and advanced text services were fixed in SPI v. 2.0 Build 2001(released January 5, 2011), so the forum link you were viewing may be referring to an out-of-date solution for bugs in Build 1003.

I checked yesterday and Secunia has already released another patch (Build 3001) on January 10, 2011 so you might want to try installing PSI v. and see if it fixes your problems.

You might have to turn your advanced text services back on to resolve your scripting errors.

Just FYI, I updated to PSI 2.0 Build 3001 yesterday and I still can't get my dashboard to load over a slow dial-up Internet connection, although the dashboard does eventually load after about 1 minute on a fast public WiFi connection.

32-bit Vista Home Premium SP2 * FF ESR v52.9.0 * NS v22.15.1.8 * PSI v3.0.0.11005
