IE7 Instalation help

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I have a cooperate edition of Windows XP that I got legitimately, however, its key does not pass Windows Genuine Advantage (don’t ask me why). I have used the Java hack to get my updates, but when I tried to install IE7 Beta, it wouldn’t let me. Does anyone know of any way to get around this? I have it working on my laptop, but I want to get it on my desktop as well.

Admins, if you feel this thread is encouraging piracy, then delete it, but I swear that I did not steal this copy of Windows. I got it when I was working for an organization that had a license to use it.

I know it works for Windows Update... Get the Genuine Advantage plugin then use Manage Plugins in IE to disable it.

Just wait until it's official to get it...I've seen it and all it really is is a amped up version of the server03 IE...which equals hard to access the internet sites you'd like (so -called security features)...but you can access Microsoft's webpage with not a problem...it even blocks Google until you tell it let it pass...ohhh and Firefox...and it wasn't my firewall either

Even when its official I am sure it will still be blocked by Windows Genuine Disadvantage. Is there any "hack" to get around that?

When you in IE go to ''Tools'' and then go to ''Manage add-ons'' Then in the window that pops up go to the little tab at the bottom and select '' add-ons that have been used in internet explore'' then look for an activex control called '' Windows genuin advantage'' or something similar then click on it then at the bottom of the window select disable and apply and your done.

That lets the updates in, but it still wont let IE7 install. It seems that IE7 has a WGA check built in to the installer.
