Running IE 7 Beta Locally

I've encountered this little trick from time to time but got lucky when I found it on a particular forum, so since it was really hard to find I thought I'd share it with you guys here. :)

1. Extract all the files from IE7-WindowsXP-x86-enu.exe in one folder using WinRAR.
2. Delete: folder, update and files, ie4uinit.exe spuninst.exe spupdsvc.exe install.ins

3. Create a new empty text document and rename it to iexplore.exe.local

4. Done! Run iexplore.exe

I will not provide the beta 1 for Internet Explorer so if your not in the beta, you'll have to get that on your own.
