Running IE7 and IE6 on same machine
Is this possible?

Since I only have one pc, and with the new IE7 coming out, does anyone know of a way to run both browsers on the same pc?

Any help would be appreciated!

Have a look there :
[tredosoft.com...]
or install IE 7 and look for IE 6 standalone.

Thanks! appreciate your reply!

<edit>I suppose installing IE7 with IE6 as a stand alone would be the proper way to do this?</edit>

While there ways that supposedly work to have both, I have heard of several problems with doing it.

Be aware that conditional comments don't work on standalone IE6.

Thanks Nibbler as I use the conditional comments.

Wonder if I should go with the stand alone IE7 instead?

I could load it on the kids pc, IE7 that is, but then I would be runing up and down the stairs, not good, lol

put yours and theirs onto your own home LAN and then test pages using their desktop from your machine ..

Hmm, I have the two hooked up to a router right now. How would i get into the machine like this?

DanA, thanks for the link, appreciate it greatly. PIE is a great site.

Very useful to have a standalone solution where conditional comments will work.

Conditional comments don't work in IE7 standalone either. At least not the last time I checked. The *ONLY* way to have a fully functional copy of both is to install a second instance of Windows within VMWare or Virtual PC.

(*grumble* stupid OS-tied browser *grumble*)

They do work if you remove or rename version vector from the registry.
Any installation or re-installation of ie 7 will set version vector.
The ie 7 standalone launcher normally takes care of this problem.

lol@critters grumble, and totall agree with it!

Ok, so I am confused right now.

IF I leave IE6 on here, and install 7 as a stand alone, the conditional comments won't work, or do work? Any information either way to back up the statments? Links to resources as I am sure I am not the only one that is trying to figure this out.

You can have IE 6 installed and IE 7 as a standalone with conditional comments working (but you will have to refuse the update by using
Microsoft blocker [microsoft.com] )
The link is above [tredosoft.com...] - use the launcher to have conditional comments working, there are some limitations.
You can have IE 7 installed and IE 6 as a standalone with conditional comments working. Download the standalone IE 6 and follow the procedure (repairing conditional comments) in the link already above :
