Microsoft is working to fulfill our legal obligations in Europe for Windows 7. In the meantime, Arik Cohen, a Program Manager who is working on the E editions of Windows 7 replys to the most common questions about what the E editions of Windows 7 will mean for ISVs and developers. “The only functional difference is that the Internet Explorer 8 component is not available. This is the same component that your users can turn off in the “Turn Windows features on and off” control panel in the Windows 7 RC build. The Internet Web Platform components (for example, WebOC) are still installed and available on all editions of Windows 7, since they are part of the Windows core.” “Use the IApplicationAssociationRegistration::QueryCurrentDefault API to determine the registered browser by checking QueryCurrentDefault(“http”, AT_URLPROTOCOL,  AL_EFFECTIVE, out progID),” said Arik.
