IE7 beta causes Windows 2003 (sp1) x64 to freeze (sort of)

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by Egbert Nierop \(MVP for IIS\), May 6, 2006.

  1. Yes, you read well. Do not install it on X64. I'm not sure for 100% but it
    did reboot and work one time, and after that, -all services- except the most
    important ones, like lsa and eventlog do -not- start so only 3 services
    could start. Viewing the list of active services (services.msc) is not
    possible, unless you switch to standard view. It seems that Windows X64
    cannot deal with the HTML view and some other things anyway, I even cannot
    view the eventlog, eventvwr.exe can open, but does not allow me to double
    click and view what went wrong.

    An in-place update from CD was the only solution to get IE6 back (MSI
    services also were not able to start).


    (ps: this is not a support request, I just mention it).

  2. Egbert:

    I'm running the x64 version if IE7B2 without problems. I removed
    KB904942 and turned off "send and receive messages at startup" to cure a
    known issue.

    ah, in my case, I could just open the registry or start an executable like
    word, but anything related to management was off.

    Is the 'send and receive messages' curing that problem? I got a message,
    directly after the 'starting windows' modified to graph mode and the message
    said: "one or more services could not start". To be more exact, about 15
    services could not start. I was not able to find the real cullprit since the
    eventlog was not readable as well.

    I suspect this is related to IE7 B2 because the richedit control & HTML
    caused a process freeze.

  4. Egbert:

    You may have a corrupt installation. Uninstall IE7B2, reboot
    twice, turn off AV before reinstalling. Another possibility is a conflict
    with an IE add-on because they are transferred over from IE6. Disable all
    add-ons, note response. If the response is normal, enable add-ons one at a
    time to find the conflicting add-on, also if any add-on is listed twice
    leave one disabled.

    Sure, it might be, but that's a bug. I just want to warn people not to
    install it. Of course, it was not a production system :) happy me, I've
    learnt not to spoil working systems like this.

    > twice, turn off AV before reinstalling. Another possibility is a conflict


    You are funny, uninstall also uses MSI, which cannot run as well.

    I never run AV, have never been affacted as well. :)
