Is it possible to do a stand-alone Installation of IE7 on a 2008R2
Hi Group

I'm doing some lab-test on Server 2008R2 RDS (TERM)
now I have got the challenge to make
both IE7 and IE8 (installed by default) available
to the RDS users.
Is it possible to install IE7 on a server Running IE8
and make both applications work

--
Thanks in advance

It might be possible, but you risk hosing the IE8 install and it's
unsupported from MS. Why do you need to have IE7? Why can't the users simply
use IE8 in IE7 Compatibility Mode?

No. You cannot install IE7 nor can you downgrade IE8 to IE7 in Win2008 R2.

You can, however, spoof IE7 User Agent strings to make a wepage or web-based
application (but not an installed application) "think" you're running IE7.

Hi Again

The problem is that we need to be able to access
a web-site that does not work with IE8
(it might be a WEBDAV issus)

Maybe it works with Firefox or Chrome? or another alternative browser.
Those browsers you can install in addition to IE without problems.

When the site does not work in any of them, it just sucks. It will be
left in the dark pretty quickly, if it hasn't already.
