    strange behaviours with the extracted MSI installer on some machines, error 1603. Last 8er versions were good and without any problems. Anybody else?

    IE 11 will not detect this build when it is installed using the offline installer. The addons are listed as disabled, enabling them does nothing If you install using the online installer it works fine.
