Hi I have IE5.5 as my default browser however I am thinking of installing 5.01 so that I can view my websites in the (earlier) browser.
My question is if I do install it will it screw up my IE5.5 browser. Would it overwrite those files (Registries and DLL's necessary to operate in IE5.5)

Is there a way to ensure that both browsers run independantly of each other?

I couldn't get V3.02 and V5.0 to coexist but I didn't go to the MS Support site looking for hacks. 5.0 warned that it will uninstall or replace 3.02 (don't recall which) when installing.

as I undestand the situation, I am sorry to say that IE automatically removes old versions when you install a later version, and wond overstall an earlier version when a newer version already exists. Probably something to do with the intergration into the Operating System.

You can however have various versions of Netscape installed.

If you want to check you pages in different versions of IE, then try [anybrowser.com,...] a site that will simulate many different browsers and versions thereof, including Webtv.

This [98lite.net]is an interesting tool to help with the integration thing in windoze 98 and IE. It allows you to uninstall IE.
