Windows 7 SP1 install and Internet Explorer 9 RC RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently installed Internet Explorer 9 RC and would like to install Windows 7 SP1. Do I need to uninstall IE9 RC BEFORE installing Win7 SP1? I searched around the forums and couldn't find any specific answers.

     

    Thanks!

  • you can leave the IE9 RC installed. You don't need to remove the IE before installing the Sp1.

  • I was able to run the Window 7 Service Pack 1 update Via Windows Update over the weekend on my Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate Edition PC. I didn't have any issues. The download/install took about 20 minutes.

    Thanks everyone for the assistance.

  • no, you should not need it. The setup works different to XP where you should remove IE8 before installing a Service Pack.

  • Hi Andre,

    Thank you for the response. To be clear, are you saying I don't need IE9 RC installed when installing Win7 SP1 or that I don't need to worry about uninstalling IE9 RC?  I'm a bit confused on your wording.

  • I haven't tested it, but from the way the servicing works, you should get no issues. Please give us feedback.
