Has anyone had any success in installing Safari 4 in Windows 7?

My one attempt failed in the Windows 7 Beta x64

I was able to install it on my P5W DH Deluxe system with a E-6600 CPU with Windows 7 X86

I uncheck everything that it wanted to install along side and just installed the basic edition of Safari

Ok, I uninstalled Safari so I could install and capture images that I forgot to do last time

Image
Install is pretty straight forward

Image

Image
I don't like a lot of clutter on my desktop and I didn't want it to seek out and setup the printers etc. so I unchecked both boxes

Image

TADA (wish I could have inserted the windows sound here)

I wasn't able to capture it, but it has a sorta Windows 7 look to it when you are signing into like Photobucket, and I clicked to put my username the box became highlited around the edges.

I haven't used it very much yet but from my brief experience It does seem like a clean slick interface.

I booted my P5Q Deluxe into my Windows 7 X64 install and installed Safari without a hitch ^*^

I want to try Safari 4 out, I suppose I should dump W7 x64 & install it again then.

Nice screen shot of the Top Sites window, I saved it so I could see the whole thing & zoom in on it.

Did you see the (their) apps it wants to install in the Start Menu :lol:
After my failed install the Apple folder was there but dissapeared after I left it.

Where is favorites, no tabs?

I will give it a spin tonight after a new W7 x64 install.

Ok first here is a screen shot of the Windows 7 effect I was talking about where it highlites the box around the edges when you click on it

I think the favorites is called "Bookmarks" it is top left on the menu bar and looks like an open book

another included feature is "Spell check" although I don't see where it offers a suggested change it does show that the spelling isn't recognized

The more I mess with Safari, the more I like it, the history feature is really one of my favorite things. Located under the bookmark menu, you see a thumbnail image of the webpages you have visited like Windows Flip, and by clicking on the thumbnail you can go straight to that page.

The highlighted entry field is a Safari feature as I'm pretty sure that it does that on OS X as well. As for spell check, it's probably the same as in Word and Firefox where you right click and it will give you a list of suggested words.
