Recently I upgraded my system from window XP SP2 to SP3.
Something like this :
var xslDoc = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.FreeThreadedDOMDocument");
xslDoc.async = false;
xslDoc.resolveExternals = false;
//create the xslt processor.
var xslt = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XSLTemplate");
xslt.stylesheet = xslDoc;
You can see above I have set resolveExternals to false, however the xls file (gridRendererColumnLayout.xsl) I have used as my stylesheet make reference to some other .xls file using <xls:include > syntax
The part of my gridRendererColumnLayout.xsl looks something like this
Prior to windows XP SP3 security patch upgrade my application was working properly without any issue however post upgrade to SR 3 some security updates got installed because of which my application is not working properly.
When I searched through the net I found out that for MSXML version 3 , in order to reference external file we need to set resolveExternals to �true �so I modified my code by changing it to xslDoc.resolveExternals = true and it worked fine.
Please can someone help in as to
1] Why prior to security update even when the resolveExternals attribute was set to false the external reference was working fine and also the application?
2] Why the application is currently working only when resolveExternals is set to �true�?
