Safari for Windows not starting

I downloaded Safari for Windows on February 23, 2009.   I am running Vista.  
When I try to launch Safari, it doesn't launch.   I get two messages:   .  "Safari Web Browser has stopped working" (popup over Safari) .  "Safari.exe-  Corrupt File" (popup from system tray)  
Any idea how to get Safari to run?

    I have tried the following solutions, to no avail:  


    • Uninstall, re-download, re-install.  Same problem.  

    • Uninstall, download Safari 4 Beta, re-install.  Same problem.  

    • Run Chkdsk.exe.  (I noticed that Windows was suggesting I do this.)  Chkdsk.exe appears to start, then instantly disappears.  

  • AngryLapdog Feb 25, 2009

    I have tried the uninstall/reinstall solution, but it hasn't worked. I also seem to have an issue with Chkdsk.exe, which may or may not be related. Please see my previous comment for details.

    I appreciate that there are other browsers out there.  Part of my job requires me to do QA on a website, so I need to be able to see how it looks and behaves in a variety of browsers.  Chrome, Firefox, and IE run fine on my Vista PC.  I still need to be able to run Safari.

You can not use Safari at all on Windows. Apple software on Windows is really not a good idea. It is for OSX not windows.

Best way is use internet explorer 7 instead. It's integrated into Vista, and with Safe Mode, you can practically guarantee that your browser won't be a place for malware to enter through.And it's also more compatible. You can get it from microsoft website free of charge
There is IE7 Pro, it's an add-on that adds extra features like spell check, Tab History, extra scripts, adBlocker, and so much more. It's pretty much the ultimate IE7 add-on. It has everything you'll probably ever need.You can get it from here
http://ie7pro.com/

Good Luck

First thing you should do is uninstall Safari.

You can do this in the control panel, under programs.

Then re-download the application and reinstall.

If that doesn't work we'll try something else.

It's best to start with the simple solutions first though.

Best of luck!

    Sorry I didn't see your other posts before I suggested mine.

    So far Ginko's suggestions sounds the best to me. I'll see what I can dig up myself.

    How are you running the chkdsk?

    So ASKMEE what about itunes?

    Should windows users never use any Apple products period?

    You need to get out of that mindset. That's like telling Apple users not to use Office because it's a PC product.

    What you're saying makes no sense.

    If the problem becomes too big of a hassle to narrow down you might want to just install the program on another computer for the mean time and then try again in a few weeks or once a new version is released.

I heard elsewhere that there are several issues regarding safari on Vista.

Try using the run as administrator on Vista, or to run safari in XP compatibility mode.

See:

I need to reinstall Safari for XP. I deleted (uninstalled Safari this morning and now need to reinstall it.


To Download Safari:
1) Go to http://www.apple.com/safari/
2) Click "Safari 5 Free Download"
3) Uncheck the checkbox labeled "Keep me up to date... etc."
4) Be sure the button labeled "Safari 5.0.4 for Windows XP, Vista or 7" is selected
5) Click the blue button labeled "Download Now"
6) On the popup window, click the button labeled "Save"
7) Navigate to your desktop in the new window and click "Save" once more

To Install Safari:
1) Double click the icon which reads "SafariSetup.exe" on your desktop
2) Windows XP MAY ask if you're sure you wish to run this program depending on your security settings. If you see this popup, click "Yes" or "Run".
3) Click "Next"
4) Click the button labeled "I accept the terms in the license agreement"
5) Click "Next"
6) Uncheck the checkbox labeled "Install Bonjour for Windows" unless you are absolutely sure you need this additional program.
7) Click "Install"
8) Click "Finish"

Safari is now installed on your machine. Keep in mind that deleting an icon from your desktop does not uninstall a program. If you accidentally delete your desktop icon, this can easily be replaced through the start menu.

My vista desktop won't launch exe files any more. I cannot get internet explorer to work at all. I am able to launch safari (not from desktop but from windows explorer) but once it comes up, I can't do...


Most likely, the system is infected with once or more viruses and/or some type of Malware that has changed your file associations.
Try a system restore see if you can get back to were exe's worked. Some other ideas are here:

CineDashMediaConsole.volume not working.


Cinedash FIX for Windows 7
This works to fix the CineDash Media Console!
I had the same problem with my Aspire 8920G
Now it works fine.
Getting the CineDash Media Console and Launch Buttons working
If you have problems with either the CineDash Media Console or Launch buttons then you will be happy to hear that the solution for fixing these is easy!
The first thing that you will need to do is install the “Launch Manager” which can be downloaded off the Acer website. Go to http://www.acer.com and click the service support, then driver download. Go to your model. Download the Launch Manager on the acer site. The filename should be “Kilimanjaro_v2.0.00_Vistax32×64_XPx32×64.zip” the version of Launch Manager under the Windows Vista operating system .This will get the Email, Web and Empowering Technology buttons working with their default settings. If you need to change what the buttons do, you can launch the application named “Launch Manager” in the start menu.
Uninstall any previous version of Launch Manager
The solution to my problem was to get the Launch Manager to run in compatibility mode for Windows Vista Service Pack 2.
Unzip. Explore the new folder and right-click Setup.exe.
To do this go to the Launch Manager Install directory (C:\Program Files\Launch Manager ), right-click on “setup.exe”, select the “troubleshoot compatibility” tab, check the “Troubleshoot program” check box and then click “The program worked in earlier versions of Windows but won’t install or run now”. Then select “Windows Vista Service Pack 2”. Then click “Start” program. Now everything should work properly! It will install. But don’t reboot yet!
Now locate and explore the freshly installed folder in your program files directory – (probably C:\Program Files (x86)\Launch Manager or C:\Program Files\Launch Manager depending on if you are running 64-bit or 32-bit)
right-click on “LManager.exe”, select the “troubleshoot compatibility” tab, check the “Troubleshoot program” check box and then click “The program worked in earlier versions of Windows but won’t install or run now”. Then select “Windows Vista Service Pack 2”. Then click “Start” program. Now everything should work properly! It will install.
Reboot and enjoy properly synced volume, and fully functioning buttons.
