Microsoft deleted the Javascript file they hosted that told HDView how to load files.

I guess they really needed those 22KB of disk space back.

To fix it, you have a few choices:

1) Manually edit the filename.html file you would normally open.  The line

<script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/redmond/groups/ivm/HDView/HDView2.js”></script>

to point to a local copy of the HDView2.js file on your hard drive.  Alternatively, you can use a version that I have uploaded on my server if that is helpful to you:

<script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://18.62.11.24/en-us/um/redmond/groups/ivm/HDView/HDView2.js”></script>

2)  Redirect research.microsoft.com to a working server.  This is more severe, but it will fix all of your files at once.  To do this, edit the Windows host file in

C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

and add the following 2 lines:

#hack to fix HDView
18.62.11.24 research.microsoft.com

Note that this will break access to the real research.microsoft.com, so it is not a perfect solution either.

3) Mirror url use CloudFlare

  • <script type=”text/javascript” src=”https://www.idstudio.tk/HDView2.min.js”></script>
  • <script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://www.idstudio.tk/HDView2.js”></script>
  • <script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://www.idstudio.tk/HDView2.min.js”></script>

The real solution is to stop using HDView and Silverlight since they are slowly dying.  The replacement for HDView is called OpenSeadragon and it works much better than HDView ever did. I have it mostly working with existing ICE panoramas, but I need to work on it more.
