SimpleTextSymbol crash in IE11 on VM

Discussion created by areiter on Jan 13, 2014
This is a rather specific issue, but I'm curious if anyone else has had the same.  On an OSX Mavericks system, using a Windows 8.1 VM (on VMWare Fusion) and IE11, the text symbol demo (http://serverapps.esri.com/javascript_examples/text_symbol_demo/text_symbol_demo.html) is causing the browser to crash when I try to pan after placing a text symbol.

I had a coworker with a standard Win 8.1 machine try it with IE11 and it worked fine.

To reiterate:
- Base OS: OSX Mavericks
- VMWare Fusion
- Windows 8.1 Virtual Machine
- Internet Explorer 11
- SimpleTextSymbol (http://serverapps.esri.com/javascript_examples/text_symbol_demo/text_symbol_demo.html), panning the map causes the browser to crash.

It would be nice to diagnose and fix the problem since I rely on a VM to test my web app in IE.  But since it's such a specific use case it isn't a deal-breaker.  Can anyone reproduce this or is it just my specific configuration that's causing it?
