Steps to Reproduce the Behavior

  1. To create a new Windows Application project in Microsoft Visual Basic .NET, follow these steps:
    1. Start Microsoft Visual Studio .NET.
    2. On the File menu, point to New, and then click Project.
    3. In the New Project dialog box, click Visual Basic Projects under Project Types, and then click Windows Application under Templates. Click OK to create the project. By default, Form1 is created in WindowsApplication1.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Customize Toolbox.
  3. In the Customize Toolbox dialog box, on the COM Components tab, click to select the Microsoft Web Browser check box to add a reference to it. Click OK to add the WebBrowser control to the Windows Forms toolbox.
  4. Drag a WebBrowser control (look for "Explorer" in the toolbox) from the toolbox to Form1 to add the AxWebBrowser1 control to the Form1 class.
  5. Switch to Code view of Form1.vb, and then add the following code to the New subroutine (the default constructor) that follows the call to InitializeComponent:
    AxWebBrowser1.Navigate2("http://www.msn.com")
    					
  6. In the Code window, notice the drop-down list boxes. In the leftmost list, click AxWebBrowser1. In the rightmost list, click BeforeNavigate2, and then add the following code to the event handler stub that is generated:
    MessageBox.Show("BeforeNavigate2 event fired")
    					
  7. On the Debug menu, click Start (or press F5) to run the code.

    Notice that the WebBrowser control opens the Microsoft Network Web site. However, notice that the BeforeNavigate2 event does not fire before the browser opens the site.
After you install the hotfix that is listed in the "Resolution" section of this article, the BeforeNavigate2 event fires, and the MessageBox is displayed.
