Today's question - running IE6 and IE7 on the same machine
I received an email today that asked:
"Does MS have a method to run IE6 and IE7 on the same machine?"
There are a few hacks out there that purport to allow you to run IE6 and IE7 on the same machine, but they are just what I describe - hacks - all of which have problems.
As my readers may know, Microsoft offers Virtual PC as a free download to anybody who wants it. They also offer a VPC hard disk image containing a pre-activated Windows XP SP2, and either IE6 or IE7 and the IE7 Readiness Toolkit. This VPC image will expire on 17 August 2007 but I have no reason to believe that they will not issue a new VPC image once this one expires, just like they have done before.
You can download the VPC image here:
