    When I try to install a new search provider I receive an error message

    "Internet Explorer could not install this search provider
    There was a problem with the search provider's information"

    I've tried all of the "create your own" options etc and all give the same
    error...

    Any ideas ?

    Well, /that's/ a new one.

    I suggest reading the following link...

    Sandi's notes on "IE7 Gold", including Installation Tips
    http://msmvps.com/blogs/spywaresucks/archive/2006/10/18/182724.aspx

    ....then uninstalling and reinstalling IE7 per Sandi's tips. Looks like
    something got horked during the installation.

  5. Hi Dannzon,

    See if the following command fixes the problem.

    Click Start, Run and type:

    regsvr32 msxml3.dll

    -or-

    regsvr32 %SystemRoot%\system32\msxml3.dll

    I tried both DLLs and I still have the problem.

    I haven't downloaded final (still on RC1) -- could that be the problem?

    Thanks

    Try the final build. Here is an useful link, posted earlier by Robear (PA
    Bear).

    I've since installed the final (after removing the RC, ran the dlls and still
    cannot get the items to install.

    I copied the shopzilla xml to a file on our Web site and tried it there with
    no luck. It does work off of the Microsoft site. Perhaps the xml we
    uploaded to our site is malformed.

    Thanks for your help,
    Tony

    To add to my earlier reply, what I was trying to do was use the XML generated
    on the Search Providers page (the "add your own" feature) on our Web site.
    The search installed just fine from the "add your own" feature, but the xml
    did not work on the Web site. The examples I took from Microsoft's list of
    search providers worked as expected.
