I’d speculate I’m one of the lucky few that Internet Explorer 9 won’t install on. I have Windows Vista HP with 64-bit operating system. I’ve been waiting to download and install the Internet Explorer 9 official version because I just didn’t want to deal with more Internet Explorer half baked crap. Well, seems as though I only waited the full term to get the normal half baked crap you’d expect.
Internet Explorer is the stupidest browser ever! It doesn’t install on the operating system’s that it’s built for?! Where in the Hell does this crap come from?
And you have this dolt over at ARS that’s discussing Internet Explorer 9 like it just went to the moon and back, and brought back Superman… what an idiot! How in the Hell does someone in their right mind call Internet Explorer 9 ‘the most modern browser there is…’ ?
I’m updating my system to be current, nothing more. I already have Internet Explorer 8 installed…
So, I went to the download website for Internet Explorer 9. I was attempting to download the 64-bit of the browser since my system is 64-bit.
You have the obtuse web installer again…
Why is it again that all the other browser seem to already have this part ‘smack down’ easy… and Microsoft makes it the slowest, the most boring process in the world?
They make you download a 500k installer, that downloads the actual installation files… obtuse; just waste more of my time, could you please?
And it crashes right here!
WTF?! What are you doing in the background? If there’s files to be updated, get them, if there’s changes to be made, change them— confound Microsoft. Can’t you make a working installer?
And the help on this is super!
They can’t even give you a working LINK! You can’t even copy the LINK from the message! You have to type all that out, just like it’s to go find out what’s wrong with the installation of Internet Explorer for Windows, from Microsoft.
Now, I’ve got all my system updates and patches, running sp2, just as Microsoft says and it won’t install.
This is a real knee slapper right here… Microsoft offer two different locations for installing Internet Explorer… if location one doesn’t work, try location two… And we’re back to— you’re Microsoft, MAKE AN INSTALLER THAT WORKS!
I have also, downloaded the Internet Explorer installer from BOTH locations and neither work…
