Disk space requirements for Internet Explorer 6 installation


---------------------------------------------------------------
Internet Explorer 6 Setup installs the majority
of its files on the drive where the Windows operating system is
installed, regardless of the installation location you choose.
To create space on your hard disk in order to meet the disk
space installation requirements, you must create space on the
drive where the Windows operating system is installed.

SETUP
=====

Installing Internet Explorer 6


---------------------------------------------
Regardless of whether you choose to install over a network or
download the installation files to your hard disk, some or all of
the Setup files are copied to your hard disk. This allows you to
reinstall more quickly if necessary. If you want to reclaim the
disk space, you can remove the Setup directory.

>>>To remove the Setup directory:

1. In Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Programs, and then


click Internet Explorer 6.
2. Click Add/Remove.
3. Make sure the Restore the Previous Windows Configuration
check box is selected, and then click Advanced.
4. Click Remove Folder Containing Windows Update Setup Files,
and then click OK.
5. When prompted whether you want to continue, click Yes.

It is not possible to install Internet Explorer 6 to or run it from a


network drive. However, you can download it to a network drive.
To do this, map a network drive to a drive letter on your computer.

NOTE: The Download Only feature of Internet Explorer 6 is


unavailable from a UNC path.

Running Internet Explorer 6 on Microsoft Windows NT 4.0


----------------------------------------------------------------------
NOTE: You must have administrative privileges to install and
uninstall this program on Windows NT, including the first
time you start your computer after installing or uninstalling.
You must restart your computer after installing Internet
Explorer 6. This is also true for some add-on
components.

If you plan to run Internet Explorer 6 on Windows NT


4.0, user permissions must be set to Full Control for the Temporary
Internet Files folder (cache). The user must have write permission
so that files can be stored in the Temporary Internet Files directory.

Do not reinstall Windows 2000 Service Packs


---------------------------------------------------------------
Reinstalling a Windows 2000 Service Pack will result in the loss of
the ability to uninstall Internet Explorer. The Windows 2000 Service
Pack team no longer recommends reinstalling Service Packs as was
recommended on the Windows NT 4.0 operating system. This is because
Windows File Protection prevents corruption of system files.
Installing Windows NT 4.0 Service Packs over Internet Explorer 6
----------------------------------------------------------------
If you reinstall Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 6a after Internet
Explorer 6 is installed on your computer, some
components will need to be re-registered.

>>>To re-register components:

1. In Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Programs.


2. On the Install/Uninstall tab, click Microsoft
Internet Explorer 6.
3. Click Add/Remove.
4. Click Repair Internet Explorer, and then click OK.
5. After the repair operation is complete, restart your computer.

Uninstalling Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 6a with Internet Explorer 6


installed
--------------------------------------------------------------------
It is recommended that users uninstall Internet Explorer 6 before
uninstalling Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 6a.

Installing over Windows 2000 releases


-------------------------------------
Typical and full installations are not currently available for
Windows 2000. Internet Explorer 6 will install a minimal set of files
onto your system. This includes the Internet Explorer 6 Web browser
and scripting support.

Uninstalling Internet Explorer 6 before upgrading to Windows 2000


----------------------------------------------------------------
Windows 2000 contains an earlier version of Internet Explorer
components than Internet Explorer 6. Before upgrading from Windows 98,
Windows 98 Second Edition, or Windows NT to Windows 2000, it is
recommended that users uninstall Internet Explorer 6. During the upgrade,
you may receive the following message: "This program may not run correctly
because of new features in Internet Explorer 4.0. You may need to
obtain an updated version of this program." Although this message
is misleading, please click the Details button for a more
accurate description of the problem.

Downloading Internet Explorer 6 using a non-Microsoft download manager


------------------------------------------------------------------
During the Internet Explorer 6 installation, Setup must download components
from the Internet. Users who are utilizing non-Microsoft download
managers (for example, Netzip, GetRight, or RealAudio's Download Demon)
will intercept download requests. This will cause Setup to abort. To
prevent this from occurring, disable non-Microsoft download managers
before running Setup.

High encryption support for Internet Explorer 6


--------------------------------------------------------------
High encryption components are included for Windows 98, Windows 98
Second Edition, and Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 6a. Windows
Millennium Edition contains high encryption by default. To obtain
high encryption support for Windows 2000, please visit Windows
Update at http://www.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ or
http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/downloads/recommended/
encryption/default.asp.

Installing or upgrading the Windows Desktop Update


(Windows NT 4.0 only)
-------------------------------------------------------------
If you have already installed Internet Explorer 6 and would like
to install the Windows Desktop Update, you must install Internet
Explorer 4.01 SP2 before installing the upgrade.

>>>To install Windows Desktop Update:

1. Uninstall Internet Explorer 6 by using the procedure described


later in this document.
2. If Internet Explorer 4.01 SP2 is not already installed on your
computer, install it.
3. Install the Windows Desktop Update by clicking Add/Remove Programs
in Control Panel.
4. Reinstall Internet Explorer 6.

Previous version unavailable after uninstalling Internet Explorer 6


-------------------------------------------------------------------
After uninstalling Internet Explorer 6, it is not possible to remove
the browser that was installed prior to Internet Explorer 6.

Installing over localized Windows 98 Arabic and Hebrew releases


---------------------------------------------------------------
Windows 98 Arabic and Hebrew versions require the corresponding
localized version of Internet Explorer 6. It is not possible to
install the English version of Internet Explorer over the Hebrew and
Arabic localized versions of Windows 98.

Installing Internet Explorer 6 with Norton Protected Recycle Bin


enabled
----------------------------------------------------------------
It is recommended that you disable the Norton Protected Recycle Bin
before you install Internet Explorer 6 and that you empty the Norton
Protected Recycle Bin before you run Setup. Before you empty the Norton
Protected Recycle Bin, be sure you review its contents in case it
contains any items you want to recover. You can re-enable this feature
after Setup is complete. This is recommended because Norton Protected
Recycle Bin will intercept the removal of temporary files that Setup
is trying to delete, and you could run out of free space on your hard
disk if your remaining free space is limited. This would cause Internet
Explorer Setup to appear locked. For instructions on disabling and
re-enabling the Norton Protected Recycle Bin, see the Norton Utilities
documentation.

Installing on Windows 98 with Novell IPX/IP client


--------------------------------------------------
If you are using the Novell IPX/IP client with Windows 98, you may
experience problems if you install Internet Explorer 6 and Internet
Tools from the Internet. If Setup becomes unresponsive, restart your
computer. Setup will continue and finish normally. To work around this
problem, try one of the following options:

In Setup, select the Download Only option, and then run and install
Internet Explorer 6 normally.

-Or-

Install Internet Explorer 6 from a CD-ROM.

Uninstalling Internet Explorer 6 multilanguage menus and dialogs


from Windows 2000 MUI system will delete MUI files from the system
------------------------------------------------------------------
After upgrading to Internet Explorer 6 on a Windows 2000 system
with MUI enabled, administrators need to install Internet Explorer 6
Multilanguage Menus and Dialogs Package (IEPLUGUI for Windows 2000)
to re-enable MUI in Internet Explorer area. However, this installation
will overwrite previous Internet Explorer MUI files in the system and
no backup information is saved. As a result, if the administrator
uninstalls either Internet Explorer 6 or Internet Explorer 6 PLUGUI
package for Windows 2000, the Internet Explorer menus and dialogs will
revert to English. The workaround is to re-install the previous MUI files
to the Windows 2000 system.

Internet Explorer 6 Multilanguage User Interface function is not


available on Windows XP Home Edition
----------------------------------------------------------------
Windows XP Home Edition does not have the function to enable
Multilanguage User Interface (MUI) as Windows XP Professional or
later does. Operating systems (Windows 98, Windows 98 Second
Edition and Windows Millennium) which have this feature (also known
as PLUGUI) installed for Internet Explorer prior to migration to
Windows XP Home Edition will no longer have this feature after the
migration. However, other Office 2000 or Office XP applications will
still have MUI function if installed either before or after migration
to Windows XP Home Edition or later.

==============
CUSTOMER NOTES
==============

Non-English characters in URLs and queries


------------------------------------------
Internet Explorer 6 uses a new standard to transmit non-English
addresses (URLs) to the server. URLs are now encoded in a character-
encoding standard named UTF-8. If the server is running Windows 2000,
the URLs will work as expected. Many servers cannot process URLs
encoded in UTF-8.

>>>To use non-English characters in URLs with servers unable to


process URLs encoded in UTF-8:

1. On the Tools menu in the browser, click Internet Options.


2. Click the Advanced tab.

3. Under Browsing, deselect the Always Send URLs As UTF-8 check box.

The query part of URLs is transmitted in a form fully compatible


with Internet Explorer 4 and later.

Operating system limitations for character rotation in vertical text


--------------------------------------------------------------------
When working with vertical text layout, full-width (East Asian
language) characters will be displayed with upright orientation
only on East Asian versions of Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows
Millennium Edition, and Windows NT 4.0 operating systems. All
language versions of Windows 2000 provide this support.

Security settings
-----------------
The settings for the security levels of the Web content zones have
changed for Internet Explorer 6 and might no longer be consistent
with those in earlier versions of Internet Explorer. If you upgrade
from a previous version of Internet Explorer, Setup will save your
previous security settings and transfer them to Internet Explorer
6 as a Custom Security Level.

Contacts missing in Address Book after uninstalling Windows


Millennium Edition
--------------------------------------------------------------
When uninstalling Windows Millennium Edition, contacts that you
added while using Windows Millennium Edition might be missing from
the Windows Address Book. When you upgrade to Windows Millennium
Edition, the Windows Address Book data file is backed up. During
the uninstallation process, the backup copy of the data file is
restored, overwriting any data that had been added in Windows
Millennium Edition. To preserve any contacts made in Windows
Millennium Edition, back up the .wab file(s) before uninstalling.
After Windows Millennium Edition has been removed, the .wab file(s)
can be recopied into place and used if Internet Explorer 5 or later
is installed.

Assistive technology and accessibility


--------------------------------------
Microsoft works to test with the latest versions of some
accessibility aids. If you encounter problems with the interaction
of Internet Explorer 6 and the assistive technology that you use,
please contact the manufacturer of your assistive technology to
ensure that they can work with Microsoft to address the issue where
appropriate.

Content Advisor settings lost after upgrading to Windows XP from


Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition, or Windows Millennium Edition
--------------------------------------------------------------
When upgrading to Windows XP from Windows 98, Windows 98 Second
Edition, or Windows Millennium Edition, the settings in Content
Advisor might be missing. When this occurs, you will receive a
message that reads, "Please check your Content Advisor settings
for missing information. Click the Tools menu and then click Internet
Options. On the Content tab, check the Content Advisor settings."
If you receive this message and would like to continue to use Content
Advisor, you need to enable Content Advisor by clicking the Tools menu
and then clicking Internet Options. On the Content tab, click Enable.

Issues with cookies


-------------------

The Privacy functionality in Internet Explorer 6 provides you with the


ability to automatically filter cookies based on whether sites collect
your personal information. When actions are taken by Internet
Explorer 6 to restrict cookies via the automatic filtering, you are
notified via the privacy icon on the status bar. If you experience
problems in using a particular web site, or receive errors related to
cookies, it may be because the site makes use of third party cookies,
without disclosing P3P privacy information (so called compact P3P
policies). In this case, you may want to first review the Web site�s
privacy practices and then consider adding the site as �Allow� in your
list of Web sites. Lastly, you can adjust your Internet Explorer
Privacy settings to �Accept all Cookies� to ensure compatibility. Below
are steps to accomplish that:
1. In Internet Explorer, click on Tools and select Internet Options.
2. Click the Privacy tab.
3. Adjust the Privacy Preferences slider down to �Accept all Cookies�. You should
consider the privacy practices of the sites you visit before using this mode.

DEVELOPERS' NOTES
=================

New language features in JScript and VBScript


---------------------------------------------
Internet Explorer 6 ships with new versions of Microsoft JScript
and Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript). You can read
about the most important new features in JScript and VBScript at
http://msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/languages/clinic/
scripting11132000.asp. The updated Windows script engines will also
be posted for individual download from http://msdn.microsoft.com
/scripting/ so they can be installed on machines that do not have
Internet Explorer 6, for example, on an ASPWeb server.

HTML buttons with unselectable attribute


----------------------------------------
When the "unselectable" attribute in Internet Explorer 6 is applied
to buttons, the default onclick action (depressing the button) does
not take place. A simple workaround is to add a behavior to buttons
that causes this action. Add the following to the top of the file
containing the unselectable buttons (or to a CSS style sheet that
is referenced from the file):

<STYLE> BUTTON { behavior:url("***.htc") } </STYLE>


(where *** is the name of the .htc file that contains the behavior)
The .htc file should contain the following:
<component>
<attach event="onmousedown" onevent="element.style.border=
'thin inset'">
<attach event="onmouseup" onevent="element.style.border=
'thin outset'">
</component>

Msxml3.dll installs in override mode


------------------------------------
Internet Explorer 6 is shipping with msxml3.dll installed in override
mode. This means that all calls into any msxml DLL will be routed to
msxml3.dll. Please pay special attention to any XML, XSL, or data
island issues that may occur.

Standards compliance issues


---------------------------
Internet Explorer 6 offers considerable improvements in standards
compliance. In some cases, this may cause HTML content to look
differently than in previous versions of Internet Explorer. Many of
the changes causing the largest compatibility problems are implemented
only under a specific <!DOCTYPE> declaration in the HTML. If you see
rendering problems, try removing any <!DOCTYPE> declaration in your
code, and check the Developer Center for more information on these
changes.( http://msdn.microsoft.com )

=========================
MICROSOFT OUTLOOK EXPRESS
=========================

Outlook Express is an Internet-standards-based e-mail and news


reader.

To read e-mail with Outlook Express, you must be using a mail


system that uses SMTP and POP3 or IMAP protocols. If you do not
know whether your e-mail system supports Outlook Express, contact
your administrator or your Internet service provider (ISP) and ask
if they support POP3 or IMAP mail clients.

You can use Outlook Express to read newsgroups, or discussion groups,


such as the Usenet, by using NNTP-based news servers. Contact your
ISP or network administrator for the name of the news server you
should use. You can also use Outlook Express to receive support for
a variety of Microsoft products on the news server,
msnews.microsoft.com.

Outlook Express also includes the Address Book 6, which provides rich
contact management capabilities, including the ability to create groups
of contacts and folders to help you organize your e-mail and personal
addresses. The Address Book also provides access to Internet directories
that use LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol). Internet directories
are an easy way to find e-mail or street addresses. A number of popular
Internet directories are pre-configured for easy access.

============================================
OUTLOOK EXPRESS NEW FEATURES IN THIS RELEASE
============================================
- Virus protection feature

Virus protection is the answer to renewed interest in the threat of


e-mail viruses. It blocks programmatic sends and lets users specify
if they want to open attachments.

============================================
OUTLOOK EXPRESS KNOWN ISSUES IN THIS RELEASE
============================================

Outlook Express 6 can only be installed and run in conjunction with


Internet Explorer 6. If Internet Explorer 6 is uninstalled, Outlook
Express 6 will be uninstalled as well.

The Identity Manager provides an easy way to group user settings


and change users across applications, but it does not provide
security for messages, application settings, and digital
certificates. If you need stronger security, you should use
Windows logon profiles to manage user settings.

Outlook Express identities are not available on Windows XP 64-Bit


Edition. Windows logon profiles are recommended to manage user settings.

When uninstalling Outlook Express 6, the messages you have received


in Outlook Express will remain in the Outlook Express message files.
If you were previously running Outlook Express 5.0, 5.5, or
Internet Mail and News, and upgraded to Outlook Express 6, the
messages you received will also be there after you uninstall Outlook
Express.

If you install Outlook 2000 after installing Outlook Express, the


shortcut to the Microsoft Outlook Newsreader may not work. To fix
this, on the Start menu, click Programs, right-click the Microsoft
Outlook Newsreader in the list of programs, and then click
Properties. In the Target box, type (exactly as below):

"C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe" /outnews

You cannot use Outlook Express to access your e-mail account


with any of the following services: MS Mail, cc:Mail,
CompuServe, America Online (AOL), or a version of Microsoft
Exchange Server earlier than version 5.0.

You will not be able to see embedded objects or images sent from
people using Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Exchange, or Windows
Messaging. File attachments work fine, however.

If you used Internet News for reading newsgroups, any messages


in your Posted Items folder will be moved into the Sent Items
folder when you upgrade to Outlook Express 6.

The View filter, Show Replies to my Messages, only shows message


conversations for which you were the author of the original post.
Replies to your replies will not be displayed.

If the option to encrypt all outgoing messages is selected, any


rules with the action of Forward in them will not be executed.

===============================
OUTLOOK EXPRESS TROUBLESHOOTING
===============================

If you are unable to send or receive e-mail, make sure of the


following:

1. The TCP/IP protocol is installed on your computer.


2. All cables are properly connected to your computer, modem,
