One of my customers has only Mac on their location. So I decided to take there my macbook, installed EWB in virtualbox (win7 VM), same as I have Delphi and I can use windows 7 on the macBook and the Apple tools as well.

Elevate web builder seems to work, but when running the app (F9),  the test window in EWB just becomes blank. I can press CTRL-F2 and stop the script. So it basically is not usable unless I compile and upload to the server.

The macBook has MacOSX el capitan, with the latest updates to all. Virtualbox is the latest to date, with additions. The VM is windows 7 pro.
What to I need to make it work inside the VM?

Thanks,
JD

Sounds like an issue with the embedded IE browser.

First make sure you're up to date and running latest IE.

You can also test using standalone browser on same vm (IE or better yet
get chrome) Do the F9/Run and then enter URL into browser (EWB shows the
URL on top of the execution window but generally it's
http://locallhost[:port]/<project name..html).

Assuming the issue is with the browser then you can try to play with the
embedded IE compatibility settings. For example

Great. Indeed the virtual W7 had only an ancient IE8 installed. I installed IE11, latest Chrome and Firefox browsers too, now it works almost perfect, thanks.
