    Can't install IE 7 beta (WinXP(H) SP2)

    Hallelujah! The Lounge is back! Now I can breathe easy again.

    I've never tried any of Kaiser Bill's beta editions, but I was curious enough to try the new IE 7 beta. However, the installation failed, with an error message telling me to run the IE 7 troubleshooter on my desktop. The troubleshooter offed two methods, both of which entailed opening the IE 7 installation log and searching for a text string. Both methds put me in search of the point where the installation was unable to update the registry. I followed the instructions for both methods, but neither search turned up one of the text strings. The troubleshooter did not even hint at a third possible source of the trouble.

    Any ideas? FWIW, I run Norton Internet Security 2006, although I use the free version of the Zone Alarm firewall.

    Are you trying to install using an account with administrative privileges?

    Have you reviewed the support page, checklists and release notes that are linked on this page: Internet Explorer 7: downloads?

    Download details: Registry Diagnostic Tool for Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2 is a tool that might help diagnose what is happening.
