IE 7.0 BETA 2 install failure

I have been trying to install the IE 7.0 BETA on my machine without much success. The installer gets to about 45-47% and then crashes and I get a little dialog box complaining about msfeeds.dll and then interrupts the install.

Error Dialog Box

A quick search of the IE blog led me to this entry that talks about how to fix this issue. It appears that the permissions on a registry key for .tif and .tiff need to be setup to allow administrator full control over the key.

So I make the change, reboot and try the install again and I still get the same error. The install log has the following error:

  1. You could unzip the installation file into a folder, find the msfeeds.dll and then put this file into windows/system32.

    reinstall it again.


  2. yup, I’m having the exact same problem… I disabled my antivirus, my spyware program, my firewall… it’s just simply not there! I’m going to keep searching…


  3. Okay – rebooted computer without starting my SpySweeper and IE7 then installed without problem. The problem now is that I thought IE would be improved – its really worse I believe than previous versions and I probably will only have it installed because it is part of the Windows OS…..

    Really lousy browser now!


  4. Reinstall IE 7 Beta (IE7B2P-WindowsXP-x86-enu); this resolve the problem for me. Good Luck!



  5. I have a weird problem.

    I had the beta one running great, and thought I would put in beta 2. I successfully uninstalled beta 1, and was able to run ie6 again. however, when I try to install beta 2, I get a message saying that I need to reboot. I have rebooted a few times now, and still getting the same message.

    I tried re-installing ie6 again, but still got the same problem.

    Any suggestions would be very welcome


  6. This is what worked for me. I tried the registry fix concerning the .tif and .tiff but that didn’t work out for me. Permissions were already set correctly. I found a newsgroup that suggested one take a look at the updspapi.log in the windows directory. In my log I found this #E008 Setting registry value HKCR.applicationbootstrap
    #E033 Error 5: Access is denied. I setup up the Admin permissions to full control in the registry key and I was able to install successfully.
