Windows 7: How to download IE9 to a laptop running IE8

How to download IE9 to a laptop running IE8

I just got a used laptop with Windows 7 64 bit that is running Internet Explorer 8. I'll be using it with equipment that requires IE9 and it won't work well or at all with 10 or 11. When I go to Microsoft to download IE9, it only offers two choices, IE9 for IT Professionals and Developers--Windows Vista 64-bit Edition and Windows Server 2008 64-bit Edition, and IE9 for IT Professionals and Developers--Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008. Are either of these choices correct? I'm no IT professional or developer and this isn't a server.
