Microsoft: IE 8 Release Candidate won’t install on Windows 7

Windows 7 testers won’t be able to install Microsoft’s near-final Release Candidate (RC) test build of Internet Explorer (IE) 8 — a limitation Microsoft is acknowledging and saying is by design.

The IE 8 RC is expected to be downloadable by the public any day now. Earlier this month, Microsoft made available to the public the (only expected) public beta of Windows 7.

A Microsoft spokesperson confirmed that the tweet from writer Robert Vamosi was, indeed, accurate.

The version of IE 8 that is part of the Windows 7 beta is an interim beta release and is not the equivalent of the forthcoming RC.
