Same here, tried 3 times and keep getting a message saying finished installation but it couldnt install properly so reset your system :confused:

The thing is i have reset my system a bunch of times. Heck i even went into 1 of the 2 other OS's i have installed and went back to XP. Not once was i able to get IE7 B3 installed. So it isnt cause of a restart.

I guess i will just have to hack my registry and get it to intstall.

why should one need to hack there registry to get a piece of microsoft software to install properly though

KSoD 06-30-2006 09:27 AM

I dont know. For some reason even after multiple restarts it doesnt seem to recognize my Registry entries and i have to hack them to get it to recognize them.

Either that or it doesnt like the fact i have .NET 3.0 installed along with the WDK isntalled.

jonny_uk 06-30-2006 11:39 AM

well i dont have any of that installed or anything fancy, yet i still cant install the **** thing and i refuse to hack my registry just to use it!

I dont really use I.E much anyway so im not too bothered, ill just wait till its out of beta stage.
