Netscape 7.0 Preview Release 1

Wednesday May 22nd, 2002

Netscape today unveiled Netscape 7.0 Preview Release 1, the first beta of its successor to Netscape 6. The preview is based on the recent Mozilla 1.0 RC2 build and features most of the enhancements that have been added to Mozilla since Netscape 6.2 was released, including tabbed browsing, print preview, the ability to save complete web pages, email return receipts, message labels and S/MIME support.

Netscape's proprietary components have also been improved. An enhanced Instant Messenger now supports file transfers, buddy icons and communication with ICQ users (though you cannot be signed on to both AIM and ICQ at the same time). Also new is Radio@Netscape, a streaming audio service powered by Spinner.

Netscape 7.0 Preview Release 1 is available from Netscape's web site or FTP server. Marketing spiel can be found at the Netscape 7.0 Info Center.

If this is not related to any McAfee issues (like WebScanx) the following worked out for me:

Before starting the setup, right-click the Netscape setup file. Choose properties. On the Compatibility tab select the "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and in the drop down list choose windows 2000. Click OK.

Now strat the intallation and it should finish without any problems. Restart your machine after the install finishes. Enjoy. I hope that this one comes to you in time, as I lost all my nerves trying to find a solution to this problem on the Net. Finally in clicked to me to try this way... and it worked. Greetz..
