|Which browsers can handle Cindy?|
Cinderella is written in the Java programming language, version 1.1. If you use a recent browser you will not have any trouble, but if you use an outdated version of Netscape or Internet Explorer the applets will not show up.
Here is a list of browsers which are known to work with Cinderella:
On the Cinderella CD you can find Netscape Navigator 4.5, or you can download a recent version from . Microsoft Internet Explorer is available at http://www.microsoft.com/ie.
|Known Browser problems:|
|Wrong calculations in Netscape||The area measurements have little rounding errors (i.e. 8.99 instead of 9).||Try another browser, else none.|
|Security exceptions with Internet Explorer||The applet does not show up and the status line reports a Security Exception. Only occurs with files that were started from the local harddisk (no problem across the web)||Update the Java Virtual Machine from Microsoft|
|Applet does not show up||Instead of an applet there is only a grey rectangle||Are you using a 1.1-compatible browser? If so, wait for the complete applet to be downloaded (on a slow connection this can be several minutes). With Netscape it might help to move the mouse.|
|Applet does not show up (II)||Instead of an applet there is only a grey rectangle||Are you using a proxy or is your computer behind a firewall? This could be the reason, ask your network administrator for help. Maybe you can configure your browser to "trust proxies".|
|Cannot move anything||The applet just looks like a non-interactive image. Nothing can be moved.||Enable Java (Edit/Preferences/Advanced in Netscape).|
