how to install BOTH IE7 & 8 on the same computer?
I am a web designer and I need BOTH IE7 & 8 installed on my computer.

I have IE7 and went to install IE8 and it gave me NO option to install in a
different location, it wants to write over IE7.

So how can I get a copy of IE 8 that will allow me to install in a different
location than IE7?

Hi,
You can install Microsoft Virtual Machine and install a (time limited) VPC
image of IE6, IE7 or IE8 B2 on Vista or XP.

You can't run different versions of IE on the same installation of an OS.

See:
Internet Explorer Application Compatibility VPC Image

Hope this helps,

IETester with built-in Debug bar from http://www.debugbar.com

A few limitations, but IMO the best Deviners testing environment.

Regards.
