I am facing a similar issue in IE9. It is showing an error as follows in the developer console.

SCRIPT5009: 'G_vmlCanvasManager' is undefined 

I have tried to debug this issue and found that in both excanvasX.js and excanvas.js library defines G_vmlCanvasManager only if the browser does not support getContext() method of canvas object.

Following is the code for checking this in both library:

if (!document.createElement('canvas').getContext) {

But both IE9 and IE10 support canvas.getContext method. In jflip we use the following code for "Flip" object initialization.

 canvas = $.browser.msie?$(G_vmlCanvasManager.initElement(canvas[0])):canvas,

The above code says that if the browser is msie it should assign G_vmlCanvasManager.initElement(canvas[0]) for the canvas object. But we do not have G_vmlCanvasManager here.

Is there any way to fix this issue in IE9 and above? Can somebody please add some more insight into this issue.
