IE Developer Toolbar not working in IE7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using IE7 in Windows XP (Taiwan Chinese) and installed the IE Developer Toolbar, however, even if I have restarted IE7 and choose the "IE Developer Toolbar" from the menu, the IE Developer Toolbar still doesn't show up. What's the issues ?

  • Hi there,


    It's hard to say without more specific information about your configuration.  However, you might try the following:


    A.  Verify that another add-on isn't getting in the way: Start IE7 in safe mode and then try to display the developer toolbar (Tools | Toolbar | Explorer Bar | IE Developer Toolbar ).  If it appears, then another add-on is getting in the way.


    B.  Scrubbing and reinstalled the toolbar:


    1.  Uninstall the Developer Toolbar.

    2.  Restart Windows and avoid starting any IE windows or applications that host the web browser control (e.g. Outlook).

    3.  Use Windows Explorer to locate the directory where the toolbar was installed (e.g. C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Internet Explorer Developer Toolbar).

    4.  Make sure there aren't any files in that folder.

    5.  Download a fresh copy of the toolbar (just in case the last one wasn't the current version).

    6.  Install.


    Hope this helps...
