IE6 and IE7 on same PC?

Is it possible to have both IE6 and IE7 on the same PC?

I'm currently running IE7 on Windows XP SP2 but would like to have a copy of
IE6 on the same machine to test my websites.

Better ask in a IE NG.

Easiest solution: run a virtual PC (it's free nowadays), and get a

Download the standalone IE6 here:

(I should mention that I first found this a few months ago by typing 'IE6
IE7' into Google, which takes much less time than even writing a post to
Usenet, let alone waiting for a reply.)

Yes to above. Currently running IE4,5,5.5,6, & 7. Note to poor suckers
running Vista, Rik's method is your only option.

Actually, I tried the 'IE6 IE7' search in Google - and got a gazillion hits.
The first several were completely unrelated to my question so I figured I'd
save time by asking in a newsgroup. I was right; I think this DID save some
time since I didn't need the answer instantaneously.

I have to say that it wouldn't occur to me to even try entering "IE6
IE7" into a search engine.

The combination of "IE6 IE7" must come close to the opposite of
googlewhacking, generating the maximum possible number of hits for a
pair of words (2,250,000 in Google)

All credit to Google though, the article came out #1; I could have
clicked "I'm feeling lucky"!

Yup, limited validity, but refreshed once ever so often with a new one.

Well a little common sense goes a long way. Worn;t something like:

ie6 ie7 together

ie6 ie7 install same computer

or similar be a more logical keyword selection to narrow the focus?

So you could find the info with such vague keywords...hmm trying to
understand you point.
