That particular message is exclusively reserved for JavaScript as far as I know.

Double-clicking the message should bring up a pop-up window with
details, keep an eye out if the 'previous' button is enabled, as it's
likely a previous error is more relevant.  And the line number is
normally out by 1, probably because it considers the first line as
line 0.

I troubleshoot IE-specific JavaScript errors with the Microsoft Script
Editor that comes as an optional install with MS Office.  If you have
MS Office, you can install it via Add/Remove programs and browsing
through the custom installation options for Office.  This is probably
a 'lite' version of Visual Studio, but it's far far better than the
free Script Debugger you can get from Microsoft, which I find
practically featureless.
