Download IE6 standalone dll's
dhtmldev.com - Standalone IE6 for Testing Most users still use Internet Explorer 6, while most developers have upgraded to ie7. So how do you test in ie6? Most people designate another machine as an ie6 box, and then turnoff automatic updates. Oops, it was upgraded by the new guy. Nice. Anyway, for one reason or another it would be sweet to run both ie6 and ie7 on the same computer. After a lot of googling "ie6 side by side install" and "ie standalone" etc., and reading a bunch of crap, I found a nice standalone version at browsers.evolt.org and a nice added dll from positioniseverything. So I zipped everything (link at bottom) and wrote these instructions. Enjoy!
