Windows 7: IE9 Will Require Windows 7 SP1

IE9 Will Require Windows 7 SP1

LOL

Quote:
Windows XP users are unable to install Internet Explorer 9, and now it looks like Windows 7 RTM users won't be able to either, at least once the final version hits the 'Net. When Microsoft releases Internet Explorer 9, Windows 7 users will need to have Service Pack 1 before they can install it, according to the Internet Explorer 9 Beta FAQ for IT Professionals. Microsoft did confirm, however, that IT pros will be able to add IE9 to existing Windows 7 images in order to streamline the deployment process.

Maybe it finds it and knows SP1 isn't officially out yet?

The final version isn't out that is, the beta is still public.

I dont have sp1 (unless it auto updated without my knowledge) and Beta IE9 x64 installed just fine.

edit, never mind. On re-reading, I see the topic is referring to the full release of IE9. Not the beta.

Dooh!

Glad they clarified that the shared components between IE9 and SP1 will be installed when installing IE9 sans SP1.

It would have been a mistake to say "You need to download and install SP1 first" when the user just downloads IE9 for install. SP's take at least a half hour on average to install.

While I like IE9 I think they are taking way too long release it.

Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera etc all are releasing better and better versions all the time and Microsoft releases updates and new versions of IE at very slow rates.

Though, how many times does one actually need to install SP1 (the average user)? Installing it first as a requirement would have not been that bad and would have forced anyone who wanted IE9 to update.
