  • Hi,

    Internet Explorer 8 is not compatible to install in Windows 8/8.1 PC.

    As Rob suggested, we could use Internet Explorer 10 (In Windows 8) or Internet Explorer 11 (In Windows 8.1) developer tools to emulate IE8, Using the F12 developer tools; Or build a Virtual Machine.

    Besides, here is the download page:

    Internet Explorer 8

  • Hi,

    you can use the IE11 Developer tool to emulate IE8

    or

    use x-ua meta tags to force MSIE browsers to use IE8 emulation when rendering your sites pages.

    or

    alternatively install a Virtual XP machine with IE8 installed. see http://modern.ie for different VM and emulation testing options.
