“VPC Hard Disk Image for testing websites with different IE versions on Windows XP SP2, Windows XP SP3 and Windows Vista
- IE6-XPSP3.exe contains a Windows XP SP3 with IE6 VHD file
- IE7-XPSP2.exe contains a Windows XP SP2 with IE7 VHD file
- IE8RC1-XPSP3.exe contains a Windows XP SP3 with IE8 RC1 VHD file
- IE7-VIS1.exe+IE7-VIS2.rar+IE7-VIS3.rar contain a Vista Image with IE7 VHD file.
Note: For The Vista image, you will need all three files, downloaded and in the same directory, then simply run IE7-VIS1.exe.
This VPC image will expire in April 2009.
The easy and safe way to test and pay with IE8 RC1… (and IE6, 7 on XP and 7 on Vista).
I love these images. They have saved me a good bit of time over the years… (of course in a perfect world we’d be able to have IE6,7,8 all installed side-by-side… but let’s not go there today… Though it would be nice if these were available via App-V and App-V were baked into the OS… but let’s not go there either today… ;)
