JSI Tip 2287. IE 5.5 doesn't seem to download Install On Demand components?

If you install the IE 5.5 beta and attempt to add additional components using the Install On Demand feature, your Windows NT 4.0 may not download the components, or may seem to hang.

To work around this problem, wait for the Download dialog to display or install the component from the original installation source.

NOTE: I didn't experience the problem in Windows 2000.
