Internet Explorer 5.0 on Solaris 2.7 Sparc

Internet Explorer 5.0 on Solaris 2.7 Sparc

Post by Christopher Robert Woo » Sat, 07 Oct 2000 04:00:00

Anyone gotten IE 5.0 working on Solaris 2.7?  I get it installed fine,
but I get a registry setting failed error.   Running
/usr/local/microsoft/bin/iexplorer doesn't generate any errors to the
console or to /var/adm/messages.

I am wondering since this is an MS product do I have to reboot?

Any responses appreciated!

(PS - Yes, we already have Netscape running, so please don't try to
start a browser holy war)

1. Unable to get Internet Explorer 5 with Solaris 2.7 to work

I have been unable to get Internet Explorer 5 to with with Solaris 2.7

The install gives 'registry setup for internet explorer failed' and
generates a core file. No other error messages are given

Running iexplorer uses a lot of CPU and then comes back to the command
prompt with no browser.

Outlook express does seem to work

Any ideas
