In IE7 if you uncheck the disable Jscript errors option in the Advanced Internet Options dialogue, you get popup errors. I know the same is possible for a gadget.

The method I know is to use VS2005 and attach a debugger to the gadget process. However I'm not running VS2005 on Vista (too many horror stories of fellow developers) and I've been using VWD.

Is there some way to enable Jscript popup errors for the gadget on its own, or failing that via VWD

The only way I've found of doing it, is to run Sidebar under VAIO on XP with the Microsoft Script Debugger installed.

I run XP in a Virtual PC (you need Virtual PC 2007 on Vista) and do all the developement/debugging on that. It's really stupid - but it works.

Use VS2005 with SP1 on Vista, and disable the Internet Option for "Disable Script Debugging (Other)". It'll be just fine for debugging JS files, although HTML files won't load in the debugger due to an underlying IE issue.
