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.

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

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 :
