It's only a 11MB download - and make sure to remove any previous Internet Explorer Beta version you have running on your Microsoft Windows PC. Open Control Panel, Add/Remove and check the box to show updates.
There's a video with "7 Best Things in Internet Explorer 7" on Channel 9.
While I am not at MIX 06, I am following it through some of the RSS feeds around, and through the eyes of fellow MVP Chris Auld.
Now off to install this new version...
The licenses are part of a batch I received to distribute to our Wellington Windows Mobile User Group, but since the next group meeting is not until end of April the vouchers will be expired by then. I am distributing these during some User Group meetings happening now (the Wellington Office User Group and the Wellington Tablet PC User Group).
The software is great for production and development environments (yes, these are full production copies, not demo or development ones!), and "enables multiple operating systems to run concurrently on a single machine. In particular, Microsoft Virtual [PC] products enable one or more operating systems to run on the same computer system as the current Windows operating system. Today, many x86-based operating systems are supported by Virtual PC 2004 and Virtual Server 2005."
The difference between Virtual PC and Virtual Server is "[Microsoft Virtual PC 2004 is a virtual machine solution for desktop operating systems.] Microsoft Virtual Server 2005, on the other hand, is a solution for server operating systems. Although Virtual PC and Virtual Server share many features in common, they are designed for different purposes. As a result, some of their features are also quite different. Microsoft has created a white paper that explains the differences between Virtual PC and Virtual Server, and discusses the scenarios in which it is appropriate to use one or the other."
Virtual Server 2005, Enterprise Edition, can be installed on machines with up to 32 physical processors.
So, what are you waiting? Comment away!
When unchecking Cached Mode it would work ok, but crash on application exit.
I installed Outlook 12 Beta, removed it, installed Outlook 2003, rinsed, repeat, a few times, with the same results.
Big frustation settled at the time, because all other software of the Office package (Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Access) worked well and fast.
I decided to try the new Outlook 2007 Technical Beta, but this time I disabled all add-ins and I also added the whole folder where the .ost file is located into the exclusion list for my anti-virus software.
So far so good. The offline file is created, all operations seem to be working fine, e-mails are flowing nicely.
I am much happier now...
