    Bah, talk about bad timing, I was just about to go to bed and then I find this thread. Sad

    Anyway, I wonder if they fixed ANY rendering bugs...

    Those are bugs? I thought they were features to make surfing a lil more interesting.

    The rendering bug I reported is still there Sad

    Roll on IE7 Beta 4!! Smiley

    (On a sidenote, if anyone wants to take a look at this bug, I've made a webpage which displays the rendering problem.)

    That doesn't even make any sense. Vista doesn't use IE7, it uses its own IE7+. Why would you be able to install the standalone IE7 on Vista if it's bundled?

    Anyway, based on Vista 5456 build, I can say they fixed at least this rendering bug. I assume this fix is also in beta 3 for XP.

    OK. You are right. I guess the in Vista new IE7+ versions come with the CTPs.

    For those of you having problems installing the new IE7b3, after spending some quality time with KB articles and kind but boringly useless support pages, turns out the easiest way to overcome installation problems is to reboot into safe mode, log-in as Administrator (if the option exists) and then run setup.

    Note: On one machine I've had to boot into safe mode with networking, to make WGA work - though that wasn't the case with the other two installations I've done by now.
