Hi all:

I´m having problems with a installation of SilverStripe 2.2.1: sometimes the "browse" button in assets opens correctly and i can upload images and sometimes not.

Here are some tests I make:

- On my PC (Windows XP):
IE7,Firefox (3.0.4): does not work.

- On another PC(Windows XP):
Firefox(3.0.4): It works.
IE7:does not work.

- On a MAC (leopard 10.5.3):
Firefox(3.0.4): It works.

- On another MAC(leopard 10.5.3):
Firefox(3.0.4): does not work.

- Similar combinations in other PC

There is not error message.
I think this is some ajax problem ¿why sometimes the ajax call is correctly done and sometimes not?

Any suggestion?

Thanks in advance.

Finally I debugged the SWFUpload.js and discover that the error is in the function SWFUpload.prototype.browse. When it try to movie_element.Browse(); it receives the next error Error calling method on NPObject! [Plugin exception: Error in Actionscript. Use try/catch block to find error].

My solution is to download the latest silverstripe sources and replace the content of the directory jsparty/SWFUpload with the last one.
It solves my problem. I hope this has not negative implications in other aspects of my Silverstripe 2.2.1 version.
