I'm under the impression that Windows will not let you have multiple installs of IE on the same install of windows?

Does anyone know of anyway I can get this without having to set up partitions with extra versions of windows on them? I can do that - it's just a pain in the ass :lol:

Thanks people.

Are you wanting to have multible versions because you design web pages and want to see if they work on other versions of IE?

yes indeedy. I'm working on a lot of CSS stuff, which = nightmare for browser compatibility. 95% of the time my stuff works on IE 5, because I know most of the rules now, but every now and again I get it wrong.

Why, do you have an idea??

rtm223, you are correct. Unlike Mozilla stuff, you can't run multiple versions of IE on the same OS. You'll either have to do the partitioning, or like I do, I have one computer that runs IE 5, and the rest are 6. With IE, I really don't think you need anything more than that.

Yeah, I definately need a version of IE5, it would be nice to have 5.0 AND 5.5.

TBH I though that would be the answer, but i thought it was worth asking.

It's just that when I'm doing "proper" final testing I like to have all my browsers open at once and just alt-tab between them. I though microsoft was supposed to be all about user-friendlines and convenience :D

ho hum, maybe time to dust off that computer in my brother's cupboard lol

Thanks guys

I know that they make programs to test you web pages in different screen resolutions but I would also assume that they make them to see if they are compatible in different Web Browsers. Ill do a search and if I find one ill edit my post but there is probably a program to do that.

take a look at this:
