    "It will go up on the Download Center first (and will always be available
    there). A few weeks after release, we'll start sending IE7 out over AU as
    well. If you want to block the AU deployment for your company, we strongly
    recommend having the blocker tool in place by November 1."
    Taken from the Oct. IE7 Beta Chat. Link is now posted on IE Blog.

  5. There has been no official response from MS stating a specific date, only
    that it will be available by the end of October.

    So you're not saying it will be released today (18 Oct-06) now, eh? <w>

  8. I'm not ready, so I ran "IE70Blocker.cmd" from a command prompt.
    It said it created the key, which I looked for but could not Find.
    HKLM
    KEYNAME "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Setup\7.0"
    VALUENAME "DoNotAllowIE70"
    VALUEON NUMERIC 1
    VALUEOFF NUMERIC 0
    However, when I tried to create Setup there under Internet Explorer,
    regedit said that it could not do that because that key existed.

    I'm wondering which parameter (/v or /f) sets the key hidden,
    why the key needs to be hidden, and if it's really there. I guess
    I'll get an answer to that last question when AU pushes IE7.

    There is no alleged about it. Look in Properties and you will see that MS
    has Digitally signed it.

  14. Yes, there's no denying its authenticity, just whether MS truly intends this
    to be the final version. Since Yahoo has it, I'd say it's extremely likely,
    but I'm not yet willing to pull the trigger on something this system-centric
    before verifying that. You'd think MS would have blogged something about it
    by now.

    You are correct. The file was made available today. I went ahead
    and downloaded/installed the file available from majorgeeks.com. Everything
    went just fine.

    I have greatly appreciated the new openness at MS with the blogs, communities
    like this one and the massive releases of the betas and rc's. But the direct
    release to yahoo without any info on the microsoft.com sites is a real
    disappointment. Similarly, the release of the improved Vista RC2 (and the
    decision to revert to Vista RC1 for the public) to only a few of the testers
    was similarly out of sync with the openness of the past year. I hope that
    this does not mean that, now that the new wave of products is mostly
    finished, MS will revert to the closed campus style of the past. I hope they
    are aware of the benefits they have received from openness.

  18. It does not surprise or disappoint me that MS is waiting until after working
    hours before launching a big spike in download usage.
