New IE Compat VPC? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello. I used to always have enough time to get new VHDs from here:

    http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=11575

    Now there are no new ones and the old ones won't run anymore. The page from the above url says I can have a never expiring image, but I think it applies for Vista and 7 only, and I use XP only (for IE 6-8) and after unpacking the image and creating a new machine it says it's expired.

    Are there any news about new VHDs to be released anytime soon? Or maybe there's a way to get XP images never expire as well?

  • Hi, do you have an ETA on "official information" about this issue? For my setup, the Windows XP IE6 image is by far the best option for IE6 testing, and I really miss an up-to-date image.
