Assertion Failed

    Question

  • Hi..Yesterday I started getting this popup whenever  i tried opening a window in IE.  The only change to the system was 2 automatic downloads yesterday morning of Visual C++ 2013. I have no idea what that is,what it does or how to use it. Since the automatic downloads occurred this is the message I get when attempting to open a new window.

    Assertion Failed

    ---------------------------
    Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
    ---------------------------
    Assertion failed!

    Program: ...
    File: d:\sunita\download\jsoncpp-src-0.5...\json_value.cpp
    Line: 679

    Expression: type_ == stringValue

    For information on how your program can cause an assertion
    failure, see the Visual C++ documentation on asserts

    (Press Retry to debug the application - JIT must be enabled)
    ---------------------------
    Abort   Retry   Ignore

    I'd ask in the Internet Explorer forum on Microsoft Community.

  • I find it interesting that i too was having the same issues.... 

    For some reason, it started working fine with i opening the IE files from the C Drive...

    After, i opened it and looked around for the same line and all the other stuff. I was not able to find. Which i am sure it is in there.  Yet, after closing the files and reopening IE it started to work normal. However, who is not to say that this is only a temp fix or they may actually have a fix for it. 

    I find it troublesome that something so annoy could have been fixed by simply opening the IE folders/files. I do not know if this may help you or you may find useful. I do hope it works for you like it did for me.

  • What is the window you want to open in IE? a web page?

    File: d:\sunita\download\jsoncpp-src-0.5...\json_value.cpp : this file seems a source code file in a library. The window you want to open should use this .cpp file and get a Assertion error. You may need to read the source code of json_value.cpp and find out why your window run into this Assertion error.

  • I too, have the same problem with Internet Explorer.  I get the following pop-up

     d:\sunita\download\jsoncpp-src0.5...\json_value.cpp

    If anyone has had this pop-up and successfully dealt with it please share your comments and solutions.  Please make the solution understandable for a non-technical novice.  ☺

    Thank you.

  • Sounds like an IE issue, not a programming issue.

  • You might want to do a system restore to an earlier date. Especially if you have made any changes to your computer lately. If you don't know how to do a system restore, do a search in google for: "windows 8 system restore" and follow instructions. That should fix the problem.

  • This is the designed behavior of the assert function in the Visual C++ runtime, which is used to capture bugs in code. The information assert dialog is only meaningful to the author thus generally speaking you should not see it in published software - a published software is required to provide more user-friendly error messages. 

    IE itself does not depend on the Visual C++ runtime. As for finding out which IE extension throws this, ask in the IE forum at answers.microsoft.com.
