Road to Microsoft Internet Explorer 10

While Internet Explorer 9 it’s still warm, Microsoft it’s committed to show the world, that like it’s competitors, it doesn’t stop working on getting it’s products always better.

Microsoft a long the years, specially the last ones, it’s changing the way to communicate with it’s clients.
Now, instead of the big secrecy, they’re showing everyone what their development teams are working on and launching preview/demo versions of their software.

Following this policy, Microsoft launched last week a preview version of Internet Explorer 10 (IE10).
Because this is really a very early version of the browser, there’s not a lot of information but it seams Microsoft it’s really following the industry and the word here it’s: Standards, here with special focus on CSS3.

So…if you want to test drive and preview the next version of Microsoft’s browser follow the links bellow:

Windows 8 with an App Store?

After a very preliminary and “very in the start” version of Windows 8 was sent to RTM, some images now start to popup over the internet.

And, like a lot of others, it seams that Microsoft will also have an App Store.
Like in the last few years, Microsoft seams to be learning a lot and a long with innovation, it’s getting the good ideas from its competitors.

From the images leaked, it seams the Windows App Store should bring users the possibility to download not only Microsoft products but also applications from other vendors.
From Microsoft Security Essentials to Angry Birds, a lot of things should be available for download. This also means that it should be paid and free software to download from the Store.

This move from Microsoft also explains the effort’s of the Redmond’s company to make the name/brand/concept, of “App Store” an universal thing and not an Apple property.

Microsoft Office 15 to have new applications?

After some images and videos caught on the web, a new build (15.0.2714.1001) was leaked to the internet.
Although there’s no special things yet, on this new release, there’s a new application available.

It’s called Moorea, and there’s a lot of speculation about this.
Some say that this is a continuation of the Courier Project that Microsoft told to be cancelled.

With no really information about this new application, there are some pictures where we can see that this app also have the Metro Style appearance.

Here are some images:


This new application looks like a multimedia application, but…more information should be leaked again! Smile
One last thing, I believe that Moorea will not be the final name for this application.

InstallShield Setup – Extracting FIles

So, to extract the Setup.exe files, just use this command line:


Setup.exe /extract_all:”C:\Temp”

For a complete list of commands, take a look at this file:
