IE7 on Windows Server 2003 - Personal comments

It's reported over here how to get it to work: So if you want youcan try it (not supported of course on this OS, but it works). However, when clicking the View menu I get an error message as follows:

The procedure entry point InternetGetSecurityInfoByURLW could not be located in the dynamic link library WININET.DLL

both triggered by the SQL Server Service Manager (sqlmangr.exe) and Windows Desktop Search (WindowsSearch.exe). This function serves other apps to obtain security information based on a URL (see internet zones functionality in the browser) and seems to have some issue now with IE7. Using dumpbin.exe I found out that the new dll (version 7.0.5112.0) has this function

        260   8E 0003CD48 InternetGetSecurityInfoByURLW

whileas the old one (version 6.0.3790.1830 living in system32) hasn't this function. I don't have an exact idea where this comes from yet, but maybe it has to do with the menu option "Security Report" that's grayed out in my View menu. Just a little thought of mine though.

If you have the noted problem after installing I.E 7 Beta, simply download IE 7 5.5, run I.E 5.5 then I.E 7 Beta, problem should be now fixed.
