SharePoint Error: Property doesnt exist or is used in a manner inconsistent with schema settings.

29 02 2012

We were recently uncovered an error when we passed a URL with a number of parameters to the SharePoint search results page and the users IE browser returned the following error:

“Property doesn’t exist or is used in a manner inconsistent with schema settings.”

The error wasn’t returned by chrome.

The resolution we found was that the browser was set to US language so it couldn’t interpret the dates we had passed to the page.

A quick resolution to a strange error.
