Currently Being ModeratedJun 11, 2007 7:27 PM (in response to codeman38)I have the same problem, but something strange happens to me. I installed Safari on my user account that has administrator rights, and I when I try to open Safari, it crashes, but on another account in the same computer (also with administration rights) it opens without any problems.
I have an Athlon 64, and I was also able to open Safari on a Sempron, so I think that Safari doesn't have any problems working on AMD.

Currently Being ModeratedJun 11, 2007 7:34 PM (in response to BillieXP Pro)I have the same problem. I also posted a thread, but that got no responses, so I guess I'll just post in this thread for now.
Seriously, I'm getting really disappointed with Apple lately. They need more testing done before they release software. The iTunes crash irritated me, but now that it is happening to another product of there's it's really starting to just tick me off. It's definitely making me think twice about buying a Mac...Compaq, Windows XP, I want a Mac
Currently Being ModeratedJun 11, 2007 8:25 PM (in response to BillieXP Pro)My WinSafari crashes EVERY SINGLE TIME on the "My Settings" page of the Apple Discussions website (this one, duh).
- Click the My Settings link on the right menu ------>
- Start typing some text in any field, then press the following keys: TAB, DELETE, BACKSPACE (in no particular order)

Currently Being ModeratedJun 11, 2007 8:40 PM (in response to BillieXP Pro)I have the same problem when I try to access internet using proxy, seems that Modname: cfnetwork.dll is the problematic one, when the prompt asking for name/password for my proxy is entered, it crashed.
It's working fine for intra-net usage.
Currently Being ModeratedJun 12, 2007 12:18 AM (in response to avergaracampos)HI, I can prove this. Installed with my Administration account. Generated a new Account. On my Account Safari cannot be launched but with the new account it works like a charm. Great...MacBook, black, Mac OS X (10.4.8), 2.0 GHz, 2GB RAM, 80 GB HD, BT, AP
Currently Being ModeratedJun 12, 2007 12:33 AM (in response to BillieXP Pro)I have no problem installing this beta on my PB 1.33Ghz as I closed all applications, did a repair permissions before and after installation, but Safari just crashed each time I opened it. I have uninstalled it and am now back to Safari 2. Whew!
This is the first Apple software which totally failed to run in spite of all the precautions I took before and after installtion...Powerbook G4, Mac Mini 1.42, 20"iMac Intel, Macbook 2.0GHz, AppleTV, Mac OS X (10.4.9)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 12, 2007 12:58 AM (in response to usxela)I've installed on XP Pro running under Parallels 3.0, and sure enough it crashes straight away. This is on a MacBook Pro, so not exactly an old machine. Whether it's related to the VM environment I don't know, as there's also a proxy involved - I would have expected Safari to at least start up if it were a proxy issue.MacBook Pro 2Ghz, Mac OS X (10.4.9), Windows XP Pro under Parallels 3.0
Currently Being ModeratedJun 12, 2007 1:45 AM (in response to BillieXP Pro)Hi,
I think we've got another SSE instruction set error with Safari 3 for windows. It runs fine on a win xp sp2 Pentium 3 1GHz laptop but crashes on opening on a win xp sp2 Amd Athlon 900MHz and gives the same error as all the above comments.Windows XP Pro
Currently Being ModeratedJun 12, 2007 1:49 AM (in response to BillieXP Pro)I would like to run Safari on my xp machine it looks cool. It seemed to install fine but when I try to run it I get this everytime.

Currently Being ModeratedJun 12, 2007 2:11 AM (in response to Loweded Wookie)I have the same issue, Safari asks me for our proxy user name and password and crashes once I enter the details.
Any chance of a bug fix?

Currently Being ModeratedJun 12, 2007 2:51 AM (in response to BillieXP Pro)I install it, and when I open it get nothing except a really slow Windows machine. Shows up in Task Manager. Only uninstalling it seems to free things up.
It's great on the Mac, but I can't run it on Windoze.

It a bad show for Apple. Why release something that does not work. If MS ever released IE for nix machines I bet it would work as sweet as a dream, but that would be because they have access to all code needed I guess.
I was really looking forward to Safari on my machine, I am not a fan of Firefox and IE7 but I use IE7 out of need.HP Pavilion, Windows XP
Currently Being ModeratedJun 12, 2007 4:50 AM (in response to BillieXP Pro)Actually. I do not think Windows wants Safari to run on it's OS. Looks like they are scared Comon Apple bring it on, let's have Safari for Windows working everytime.HP Pavilion, Windows XP
