Something is definitely going on then, as this is my failed liste on IE9, 32-bit and 64-bit, in 7 SP1 Professional.

I uninstall-ed the RC before installing the RTW with a reboot in between. I've had problems with some of the early Beta's so I figured this would give me the best odds for a problem free install. So far so good.

Does anyone know where are the .msu update packages? I need to slipstream IE9 in a Win7 ISO

IE 9 64 Bit still cannot be set as the default browser?

I know this doesn't solve your problem but why not just set your keyboard (or mouse) to open it when you want to use it.

My point - on my Logitech keyboard I can set the function keys to open what I want. So if I wanted to use IE64 I just it to a function key - and when I hit that key IE64 opens, and any subsequent pages opened will be the 64-bit version.

You can do the same with a mouse if it's programmable.

Just a suggestion

I have it pined to my taskbar. The thing is though if its not already open any link you click in an e-mail or any other program that launches IE will launch IE 32 bit. I just wish Microsoft would give some of use credit for actually knowing what we're doing, instead of forcing some arbitrary choice on us all.

I hear you although I could see it both ways. Remember however that the vast majority of users will be the mom and pops or non-tech users - not us super duper tweak artists

Anyways like I said, you have a point.

All I did was click on Yahoo and I got a window asking if I wanted to make IE my default browser.
That didn't happen for you?

That just makes Internet Explorer (32 bit) the default browser. If you click a link in an e-mail or any thing else that launches IE from Windows 7 the 32 bit version will launch, not the 64 bit version. Windows 7 64 bit has both versions of IE but Microsoft won't let you set the 64 bit version as default.
