[WSG] Stand alone IE6 Installer

2006-03-17 Thread Helmut Granda








Does anyone know if there is a stand alone IE6 installer
anywhere? Similar to IE4 and IE5. I am running IE7 and I really dont want
to uninstall just to test couple of sites on IE6.

Helmut,

What you are running is a preview release of IE7 Beta 2 not even Beta 2. 
If the MIX06 release is out then you are running Beta 2 but the MS IE 
blog has made many attempts to explain that there are still changes 
coming. In addition it will not be in General Availability till 2007. 
There are lots of great articles about running IE7 as a standalone and 
solution that I am using has a batch file that fixes a registry entry 
that will screw up your IE 6 when they are run on the same machine.


I would strongly suggest that you switch back to IE6 and use a SA 
version of the IE7 release that is out now.


Just my opinion.

All the best,

Jay

Jay,

Thanks for your explanation and your recommendation, I didn't think of using
IE7 as SA (I didn't even knew it was available). I am aware that I'm running
a Beta and all of the technical difficulties that could come with using Beta
software. But I'm not too concerned since I don't use IE as my primary
Browser; actually I use FF for work and Opera for personal usage.

Thanks again!

The solution, explanation and script are located here:
http://weblogs.asp.net/jgalloway/archive/2005/12/28/434132.aspx

To install the ie7 as a standalone try here:
http://www.sitepoint.com/newsletter/viewissue.php?id=5issue=18

Scroll down for the instructions.

I also found a link that has both above links included on the same 
article here:

ATB,

Jay
