I need IE8 (8.0.7601.17514)

    General discussion

  • We have been informed by a third party client that we must have this version of IE8 (8.0.7601.17514) however we cannot find any link on the official Microsoft website. We cannot download this from other websites for corporate security reasons. 

    Can an MVP please advise as to how we can acquire this specific version of the browser please?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Uninstall ie9,

    Before you uninstall ie9 you will need to change the way you receive windows
    updates because ie9 was released through both Recommended and Important
    categories, if you don’t ie9 is likely to reload when you boot or shut down your

    Once you change the settings you can uninstall and the boot to complete the
    uninstall process, then check for updates right click the ie9 update and select
    hide, then you can change the windows update settings back to default at least
    for the Important updates anyway,

    Recommended updates are usually Optional anyway and cause most of the issues.

  • You can safely ignore this thread. 7601 refers to windows 7's flavour of IE8, we do not have Windows 7 so this exercise cannot be completed.

    Thread can be deleted.
