ie7 install error

We were unable to update new computers to IE7 because of
ACROBAT READER 9 ....believe it or not...

Hope to be of help

RE: ie7 install error

I don't say that's not true but ... could you provide more details about that?


RE: ie7 install error

"Internet Explorer installation did not complete"
And it leaves you the link to the general update issues page on your desktop.

We tried everything. Up to reinstalling windows and all.
If you like i'll post the exact error given in the ie7-main log file.

RE: ie7 install error

Try installing IE7 in safe mode.  If Acrobat Reader has hooked an add-in that is causing a conflict with IE, it should be disabled in safe mode.

RE: ie7 install error

That also didn't help. We have been searching for 3 days on several pc's but to no avail until we discovered that it DOES install with acrobat reader 9 removed.

RE: ie7 install error

What XP SP is being used on these machines?  Also, are you installing IE7 from Windows update or from some previous download?  (Just trying to figure out the details of this problem)

RE: ie7 install error

Xp PRO new, out of the box with SP2, with and without sp3 it does not install ie7.

We have a list of programs to install when we build a new pc and Acrobar reader is (alphabetically) one of the first to be installed. We tried and like(d) the AR9 so we installed it. After that several other programs (sp3, irfanview, winrar, etc....) and when we came to ie7 it errored out.

This happend installing 5 new pc's and on only 1 it went fine. It was installed by another sysop which did not follow the sequence :)

RE: ie7 install error

We tried the offline install (15Mb), through Windows Update and with the downloaded installer, all with the same result.

RE: ie7 install error

I've been doing a bit of digging and there seems to be some connection related to the permisisions on some registry keys which are created/modified by AR9 that the IE installer needs access to.
