How To - Changed Windows Embedded Browser
#1
The following changes will add a new entry to the Windows Registry.  I recommend reading through this first and the additional reference sites before attempting this.  As always modifying the Windows registry can be dangerous and can leave your system broken.  Use at your own risk.

StackExchange superuser discussion:
https://superuser.com/questions/432154/h...n-windows7

Windows Docs:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/archive...patibility

Windows Reference for Browser Compatibility:  -- Open in a new tab/window you need it later
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previou..._emulation


Procedure:

IV Web Helper:
- Current 5.4.0 name is:  CQCWBHelper.exe


Launch the Windows registry editor. 
This can be done in several ways.
- Enter regedit into the search board
- Use the Windows Key + R and type regedit

Find the Windows Registry key to modify:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION

- Add a new key
- New -> DWORD (32-bit value)
- Name the entry CQCWBHelper.exe
- Hit enter to save it
- Now open the entry and change the value to match what you want the Browser version to be from the Microsoft Doc above

Actually that's quite right. CQCIntfView.exe doesn't itself host the web browsers. Because the web browser engine is heavy and potentially could destablize the hosting application even, the viewer invokes a helper program (CQCWBHelper.exe) which actually creates the browser. So, if you set the name to the viewer, then probably you are still using the default values. So try it again with the helper's name.

The same thing, BTW, is done for web cameras, where there's a CQCWCHelper.exe that is spawned off to host an instance of VLC.

Chaning it to CQCWBHelper.exe did resolve some of the javascript errors.  However charmedquark.com still don't load because of the requirement of HTML Templates.  Interesting.
