IE8 RC1 won't install on Windows 7.

Well, now this is funny.  I'm busy working on a web project which means I need to test the site in every possible browser, including the latest-and-greatest offerings from the likes of Microsoft and Mozilla.  I decided to grab the latest public build of Internet Explorer 8, and Release Candidate 1 was just announced a few days ago.  I'm thinking "Good timing!"  With Windows 7 Beta Build 7000 officially "out in the wild", I expected it would be a painless install..

Instead, I received this error message when I started the installation app in Windows 7.

 

This deserves a LOL. I'll have to Google around (sorry, Microsoft) for an answer to this one! Wink

Back to work!
