msfeeds.dll error when installing IE7 Beta 2 Preview
Another two keys have been implicated - the same problem with permissions as described at this URL - the two keys that were implicated this time were:
My grateful thanks to Nick Whittome, SBS MVP, for getting in touch for advice about the msfeed.dll file, then running regmon to track down what registry keys were having problems with his installation.
To quote the IE team.. the permissions fix is:
1. Go to Start then "Run" type "regedit" in the run box and enter.
2. In regedit expand HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT in the left pane and the scroll down
to the entry ".tif" (or htafile, or mailto)
3. Right click on the entry in the left pane, select "permissions..."
4. In the permissions box select the "administrators" group.
5. Click on the "Advanced" button at the lower right.
6. Select administrators and click edit.
7. In the next dialogue check to allow box for "full control".
8. Repeat this with the .tiff key
9. Save and close.
10. Install IE7
This tell us that *any* IE related key may be affected by the permissions problem. You need to review the file updspapi.log to work out exactly which keys are affected when you are attempting installation. You will see "Access Denied" errors.
I reiterate my advice that it is best practice to disable antivirus, crashguards, antispyware, Windows OneCare, Windows Defender, Microsoft Antispyware, even Messenger. It is essential that you make sure that:
1) No other programmes are running (no windows open)
2) That you shut down the programmes via systray icons as well.
The only programme that I recommend you leave running is your firewall.
If we manage to track down exactly which programmes are interfering with the IE7 Beta 2 Preview installation process, I will post further information to this blog.
