    I downloaded Beta2 -- it won't install (.dll file missing) and referred me to
    the logs -- something about user installed IE. I have Windows XP SP2.
    I'm happy to forward the logs for review if that would be useful.

    I have the same issue, whether installed from a saved file or run directly:
    it gets up to about 49% and then throws: "Error loading
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\msfeeds.dll The specified procedure could not be found."

  5. Hello,

    This happened becuase the permissions on a registry key has been changed.
    On install we archive all the keys which involves both reading and writing to
    the keys. Some application has changed the permissions on the .tif and .tiff
    registry keys to not allow administrator full control over the key. What we
    need to do is change the premissions to allow the administrator to right and
    archive the key.

    This is the workaround, it invloves changing registry keys so do this at
    your own risk.

    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"
    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

    Are these the only keys that need their permissions changed?
    I'm having the same problem (Error loading msfeeds.dll - The specified
    procedure could not be found), and I checked my .tif key and it did not have
    admin privs, but the .tiff key did. I added admin privs to .tif, tried the
    install again, and got the same behavior.

    I looked and already had Full Control checked for .TIF and .TIFF -- no joy

  8. Thanks for trying the solution, I am sorry that it hasn't worked for you.
    There may be other Keys that are effected. I am investigating and will post
    back when we find a workaround.

    well after few tries with tif, tiff rights. In my case it seemed to be
    Windows metafile unofficial vulnerability patch 1.2 that needed to be
    From add/remove programs. Finally this one un-installed, so maybe this was
    the one that gave those problems.
    Hope this helps,

    Got the same error with the installation of IE7. Here's the solution:

    Turn off all Spyware. I turned of my Webroot and it installed perfectly.
    (I did turn of my firewall software because it kep asking annoying questions

    I tried to install it on January 31st, and got the same type of error
    message. You would think by this time they would have these kind of things
    resolved. Will just have to wait for the release version. Thank God Firefox
    1.5 works good, and don't really need IE7!!!!! My IE6 works OK too, so I am
    in good shape, but just wanted to try the new version that Microsoft had

    Thanks: good suggestion...but I closed Webroot, disabled Norton Firewall, and
    still got the same issue. However, I rebooted into Safe mode with networking
    enabled, and it installed without a hitch...

    I tried the regedit solution as mentioned and it did clear up the MSFEEDS.DLL
    issue. But now, I get a different error showing in ie7beta2_main.log

    Internet Explorer installation completed, exitresult=0x0000000,

    Line above showed exited with code 61482. I tried doing a search on that
    exist code, but nothing popped up.

  16. I still have the issue. I noticed that Office12 beta is the app that was
    associate with TIF and TiFF (and PNG) I fixed PNG as well as the others and
    still fail. Are there others from Office 12?? I need to fix?

    Download and run RegMon during it's install. Find out where it stops and that
    may give you a clue. I had to do this to get it to uninstall. I found out
    that it looped at the keys within the Feed Discovery entry. It seems that it
    didn't like that I'd edited the sound scheme and named it "Save 02". I
    deleted the offending keys and it worked fine. Just something to try, if
    you're hell bent on installing this beta. I advise you make a backup before
    trying anything in the registry.
