Extracting safarisetup.exe will result in 6 msi files. First install AppleApplicationSupport.msi and follow that with Safari.msi. There is no need to install the other msi files.

Hi,

I modified the Defaults.pslist with Notepad but Safari became unstable. The address bar was not appearing at all. After a 2nd try the settings were not applied and the browser still not working properly. Notice that the tests has been done on a clean Virtual Machine with Windows 7 64bits. Maybe it works for x86 only.

Is there any other way to set those custom settings for 64bits?

Kind Regards.
