    Question IE6 alongside IE8

    Is there any way to get IE6, IE7, and IE8 running at the same time? I'd really like to check my site in all of the browsers, but I can't seem to install all of them at the same time. It just ends up breaking all of the IE installs.

    Thank you for your time.

    See the stickied thread, but yet. Best way is using virtual PC plus the free images from Microsoft. There are some other options as well.

    The best of those "other options" being IETester, which can be found at http://www.my-debugbar.com/wiki/IETester/HomePage

    It also lets you test IE 5.5 and 7 as well. (Oh, and IE8 is built in.)

    The new Windows Virtual PC has a very interesting mode of integration. XP Mode as its called allows one to install any application in the virtual environment and have that application appear in the host start menu. Instead of shutting down the VM you put it in hibernation. The VM is only ran when you run an application from it.

    However there is a catch. It seems the beta version is only for Windows 7 right now. No idea if it will be available for previous versions of Windows. You also need a processor with Hardware virtualization extensions.
