Internet Explorer Beta 7 Installation Problem

By friend2u

  1. When I try to install IE Beta 7 I get a message saying that it did not install and to check my systems logs. Anyone have any idea where I can find the system logs? I dont see them in the systemfloder or the system 32 folder either. I do have SP2 and Netframe 2.0 installed so I know I am ok there!

    "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\.application\bootstrap
    #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."

    my ie7beta2p.log and ie7beta2_main.log ended up in the windows folder if that's what you're after

    I changed it because I saw THREE newbies that were using it.
    I made my own. (scanned one of my uniform patches and reduced it.)
