Windows 7: Installing IE6/IE7 on win7

The OP wanted to test his websites against different browsers, that was the original intent of the thread. As I stated a ways back, there is no need to load additional browsers.

You can check your websites with something like this - Check Browser Compatibility, Cross Platform Browser Test - Browsershots and get more than just MSIE results.

(Just thought I'd try to get back to the intent of the OP.)

Before switching to windows 7 I used windows XP and had IE6, IE7 and IE8 installed without problems (Final Builds Site - Internet Explorer Collection). On windows 7 they don't seem to work, if I don't find a way that is not virtualization I guess i'll go back to XP.
First off, those packages, standalone IE packages, are really full of problems and sometime are skewed in such a way to create false results. Using virtualization is in fact the best course of action. I personally use several VMs (each browser has its own VM) durning my testing with heavily modified images of Windows XP, minimal RAM and resource usage.

But really for more in depth and helpful comments on Web Design/Development situation, is a much better place for those type of question.

Also to add...NEVER EVER use the user-agent for ANYTHING! I'm very serious, you should wipe anything dealing with the user-agent from your mind and never look back. If you want to go back to the 1990 then fine, but in this year....
