# IE7 Beta 3 - Give me a break

By Murray Bourne, 13 Jul 2006

I just wasted a night trying to install that IE7 Beta 3 rubbish on my home PC. I want to tweak my sites so they work okay in this CSS non-compliant browser.

I got:

Internet Explorer 7 could not be installed. You must restart your system to confirm that any changes to your system are undone.

I tried all 4 methods in the troubleshooting guide and none of them worked. Seems that

Something has caused the computer not to trust the Internet Explorer 7 installation package.

You bet - I don't trust it either. After 4 attempts at installation, I give up.

Grrr. I hate IE.

Update: Miracles can happen. While doing something else, I disabled all the startup items that you really don't need (like Real Player and Adobe Reader and Java Runtime Environment's jusched.exe). A few days later, I tried to install IE7 Beta 3 again and this time it worked like a charm. I'm not sure whether the disabled startup items allowed the install, but I couldn't hink of any other changes that I had made.

Let me know if your installation goes okay after disabling unnecessary startup items.

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)
(See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with $$ and $$.
$$\int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}}$$
(This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
