I just tried the manifest you posted on a random .exe (WinSpy), same result and that is not even an installer

edit: as far as I can tell, process monitor does not seem to have this problem

If someone could test lewellyn's example on Win7, that would really help narrow things down

I'm downloading the x86 RC now. I'll probably have a VM up and running in about an hour or so - I'll post an update then.

UPDATE: VM is ready. I copied the installer over, just like I did on my x64 install.

It's *much* slower to start up than on Win7 x64, so it looks like this might not be fixed. However, it still seems faster than Vista x86, as well as my Win7 Beta1 x86 VM.

Process Monitor actually CRASHES when I try to start the installer, claiming it's out of memory (granted, the VM only has 512MB of RAM...), so I can't say for sure what happens. I'd allocate more RAM, but this computer doesn't have THAT much available (2GB RAM total, but keep in mind that it's a VM and Vista is running as well, so it might compromise the test result. Indeed, this might cause quite a bit of the slowdown here (my x64 machine has 4 GB RAM, and it's running "natively" there, not in a VM).

I don't see the file appearing in %windir%\temp - or %temp%, for that matter - so I'm guessing it now does whatever check it needs to do in-place.

I haven't tried altering the manifest yet, but if you have a specific one you want me to try, let me know - I'll keep an eye on this thread.

Process Monitor failed for me also, and I was not running in a VM
