Hello,

I recently downloaded the new Internet Explorer 7. I noticed that when I was done, I could only use IE7. Is there a way I can use both? Thank you.

Howdy:

Not really as the IE7 install simply overwrites the IE6 installation..

BTW.. where did you manage to get ahold of IE7??

ie7 is a non-public beta that requires
a) windows xp sp2
b) a legitimate license

It can only be legitimately download by authorized beta testers so you cannot "download it" from any legitimate addresses unless you have access to the beta servers.

of course it's already leaked all over the p2p file sharing networks, but be forewarned--BETA means BETA, means USE AT YOUR OWN RISK

Hello,

I am a developer. I got the Beta 1. Any ideas on how to have them both? I need to have both in my testing. If I cannot do this, I can use another computer. Still, any ideas though?

short of a virtual machine like vmware or virtual pc, I cannot think of anyway to do this, since it saves many system files to the windows\system directory, rather than it's own program directory.


Well, dual boot system would work I suppose, but there is no way to do as you are hoping
