Hi guys,
I see that we lost all previous posting! :eek: Well, let's rebuild that thing up!

I'm wondering if it is possible to install 2 versions of IE (5.0 and 6.*) on windows XP. The purpose is to test websites with both versions (especially 5.0) without loosing the other one.

Thanks!

Ok then if I correctly uninstall IE 6 will I be able to install 5.0 since XP comes with 6.0 by default?

XP is already in VMWare (installed over Linux) and I think it would be a bit too nasty to install another VM on the machine

yup you can

Yes you can do it, pretty easily. The original solution is linked to in this site, which has done all the work and zipped the installation. I haven't tried it (don't have a need) but it looks like it works.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
