You can use VMware or Virtual Box. I have never used a virtual machine myself, so I will point the Gurus towards this post. I know I have seen instances where people have managed to get IE7 working by making many manual changes. How well it worked, and what the steps are I have never seen. I'd thin that would not be a realistic option. in the mean time, have a look at this: Install Windows XP Virtual PC in Windows 7 Using VMware Player - TECHRENA
I couldn't locate a similar Seven Forums tutorial, hopefully an admin will see this and change it if we indeed have one.
P.S. Have you tried it with Firefox, or another browser? There are other browsers that use the Trident engine IE uses as well. Avant, Lunascape, Maxthon for example. Also there is an addon for IE Mode in Firefox such as IE View
. With FF changing so often, not sure what works any more.
