    Problem: Ruby Script which is running perfectly fine with windows2k O/s
    is not openign IE browser in Win2k3 server Standard Edition. It is
    Displaying message on windows status bar as 'Detecting proxy setting..'.

    Initially we have run same script on same machine many times, but never
    find this issue. Can anyone experience the same?

    Hi,

    Firstly, try the wtr-general mailing list for questions like this,
    they'll be more helpful than this group:

    http://rubyforge.org/mailman/listinfo/wtr-general

    Second, here's my advice, for what it's worth. Check that you can open
    IE normally and browse to the site your script is trying to get to.
    Watir drives IE rather similarly to the way a user does. It may be the
    proxy settings on the machine aren't correct to get to the site you want
    to test.

    Cheers,
    Dave

  3. My guess would be that it has to do with the security settings. Many of
    this target "scripting" which can be malicious code or (in your case)
    your test script. Obviously 2003 is locked down tighter than 2000.
