IIS7 breaking javascript?


Recommended Posts

Running the same site with the same files on a local test ( wamp 2.5 based) - it all runs fine. no jscript errors and everything works.

Even jquery doesn't work.



I have set the permissions and browser does seem to download the .js files.

I could even access them and run a compare ( to the one browser sees from my test and vs iis7 on win2008r2) - identical.


what i get in console is:

Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token ILLEGAL 

for line 1. its referring to ink-all.min.js from ink.sapo.pt framework.


event tried adding the "; charset=Windows-1252" to the .js mime type - assuming it might be in ansi.. but nothing.


​is there something special u have to set/change on iis?

iid response doesn't seem to include content-type.

You might be looking at a response for IIS telling the browser to use the cached version, try clearing or disabling your cache and seeing if anything changes. A response that contains content should always included content-type, I would also expect to see content-length.
