ie8 install fails
I've got vista home premium 32bit, ie7 installed.. and ie8 install
continually fails on me even on a freshly booted system. the updates install
correctly, and then it says it failed to install, to reboot, and to click on
the generated html file for troubleshooting, which leads to an ie7 detection
page. what's the deal?

Visit the group that discusses the beta version. This group discusses
the released versions of Internet Explorer. To use Microsoft's
webnews-for-dummies interface (which demands that scripting be enabled)
to visit the Internet Explorer beta group, go to:


http://www.microsoft.com/communities...xplorer. beta

A much better solution is to use a newsreader (e.g., Outlook Express,
Thunderbird, Forte Agent, 40tude Dialog, XanaNews, Xnews). If you do
not have or do not want to use your own NNTP (Network News Transfer
Protocol) server, connect your newsreader to:

msnews.microsoft.com

Then go visit the Internet Explorer *BETA* group at:

microsoft.public.internetexplorer.beta
