Is it possible to keep both IE9 and IE10 installed? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Due to multiple project with different requirements how can I keep both IE9 and IE10 installed at the same time? IS this possible?

    To make it more complex - I am running Windows 7, 64 bits. One client require IE9 32 bits only - the second only IE64. Virtual Machines is sadly not a solution since this is the requirement for the host.

    Thanks,
    T

  • I'm afraid you cannot run both Internet Explorer 9 and Internet Explorer 10 in a Windows 7 OS. 

    If you have a spare laptop or desktop, that would be about the only way you could do it. There such a thing as Compatibility View, but I suspect you need IE9 actually running.

    Can you elaborate on your thinking here?   E.g. I'm not sure that there is a technical limitation implied but maybe there is a political one.

    Look at this discussion to see the kind of knotty thinking you might have to try to untangle (or see its FAQ as one of the posters suggested)
