Haptek, IE8 and XP.
« on: April 29, 2009, 01:39:32 pm »

I have finally updated my Internet Explorer from version 6 to 8 (with XP SP3).

And like you, I got the message saying that my Haptek player is not the good one, when I tried to read a HTML page with Haptek content. Unable to see my own stuffs!

I followed the instructions and the "official" Haptek player was automatically installed. I answered to the questions in the little yellow window above (maybe you have to close/open IE too). Now it's ok with Haptek webpages.

I know that some people hesitate to do this, because they prefer to use another Haptek player. No problem. Then they can reinstall their prefered unofficial version, like 4.11.41 20030415, available here:

http://www.haptek.com/tests/

I did it and the things from the following pages work fine (they can't with the normal version):

Seems to be just a browser, not a OS problem. And finally not a problem at all. 8)

Yes it seems that it deosn't work properly on IE8. Haptek technology is outdated in terms of OS but still recent in terms of 3D. There is still nothing (in terms of real-time 3D) that can compete with haptek. I heard that they are trying to updated it but nothing is certain so far. Do you think that they will surprise us after so many years?

No problem with IE8 and Haptek, after following the installation instructions. All my skits and Pandorabots are running fine with XP (and Vista too, just need to adjust some Windows settings).

But about the company, you're right. Dunno if they are still getting new customers, but sure that hobbyists are not their cup of tea. :(
