won't install

    I got the exact same error message. I am running XP Pro SP2 with IE 6.0.
    About 43% into the install, an dialog box pops up. The title bar reads RUNDLL

    The message reads: "error loading C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MSFEEDS.DLL"

    The installatoin fails and it then says that IE 7 cannot be installed.

    I thought that this had something to do with a previous install of some RSS
    Readers that I had on my system but I uninstalled them and that did not help.
    I ran several Registery cleaners, DLL fixers, and other such utilties and
    nothing would "fix" the problem. This is clearly a bug here judging from the
    early number of posts so far on this issue.

    Any suggestions?

    Do a search in this News Group on "msfeeds.dll". You will see a quickly
    growing list of "me too's" on this MSFEEDS.DLL installation issue. It is a
    bug. I have tried EVERY fix that everyone has suggested (about 8 so far) and
    everyone has ended with the same result. IE7 will not install.

    this is obvioulsy a bug that the developers need to look at. But hey, its
    BETA, so we can't complain! Hope that you guys at MS can figure it out.

    Still no luck whatsoever installing IE7 B2. I have the msfeeds.dll error
    message and have disabled just about everything except for Windows itself.
    Maybe I should try installing in DOS 6.11? I should have a copy of that
    around here somewhere...

    Oh no...haha...what I meant was I shifted locations, therefore I had to shut
    down my laptop.

    Upon booting up Windows again, when I launch IE from the quickstart panel,
    it launches IE6 instead of IE7.
    However, when I click on "Options", "About" and all those, the dialogs that
    appear are those of IE7.

    Tried clicking on the IE7 application icon under the installation directory,
    but it never launches. Nothing happens.

    Hoped I cleared things up...lol

  5. Using REGMON as someone suggested. I found the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\htafile
    entry also need to have permisions changed.

    I suggest if you really want to get running use REGMON and filter to see
    only opens with errors and filter out "NOT FOUND" so you don't see those

    Also, after each failure you need to reboot.

    I'd also suggest posting which keys you had trouble with so they can address
    this faster.

  7. ....

    You almost got there. Did you try searching for the decimal value?


    (MSN search for
    61482 site:microsoft.com

    The system must be restarted before installing the %1
    to allow some prior file update operations to complete.
    (These operations were previously scheduled
    by some other install or uninstall operation.)

    Offhand I'd say that some earlier messages in the log would probably
    be more significant. If you need more help try posting more from the log.

  8. I had the same exact issue.
    I tried everything you guys said to do and this is what went down.

    1) had to change registry tif, tiff
    2) turn off spysweeper
    3) went into safe mode.

    then it worked.

    any comments on why this happened or why this is?

    by the way I been posting about this in a really great and helpful forum.

    I had the same problem. I read on another post that if you re-start and boot
    into the safe mode with network that it will install properly. It worked for
    me. I was getting the same error message. Hope this helps.

    I have successfully installed the IE 7.0.5296.0 (beta 2) after getting the
    missing msfeeds.dll message on my computer.

    What I had done:
    I have changed the .tif and .tiff registry permissions.
    Restart the computer.
    Close all antivirus, anti-spyware programs.
    Run the setup.

    My System info:
    I use Windows XP Pro SP2 version on my DELL Dimension 4700 PC.
    McAfee Internet Security suit (Antivirus, firewall, privacy service).
    McAfee AntiSpyware.
    AVG Free edition.
    Webroot SpySweeper.
    Microsoft AntiSpyware.

    Maybe this could help others.

    After turning off Spysweeper as you suggested, it installed flawlessly and
    works great. Thanks for the "fix"

    Changing the permissions on .tif and .tiff eliminated the msfeeds.dll
    problems, but now I get a message that the installation did not complete.
    I've noticed quite a few others in this forum with the same problem. I'll try
    the reboot in sage mode w networking method. Here is the end of ie7betp.log
