Selected Test Results

What works

Installation (with workarounds), parts of the Internet Options control panel applet.

What does not

  • Installer refuses to run in Windows XP mode (use Windows 2003 mode instead)
  • Installer gets stuck after a while, requiring cmd.exe to be killed manually to continue
  • Trying to register/install some of the included native DLLs properly causes a crash
  • The browser fails to start with default settings, and crashes on startup after disabling process separation in the registry
  • The control panel applet crashes at various places (some of those can be worked around with native urlmon and wininet)


What was not tested

Using the browser, since it can't be started.

Hardware tested
