IE Testing VPC Images Updated

  • Comments 32

Just wanted to get a post out to let people know that we’ve updated the IE VPC Test images. These images are meant to make it easier for you to ensure your website works properly across different browser versions and different operating systems without having to have a separate box dedicated to that particular OS. You can download them via the IE Developer Center or more directly through the Microsoft Download Center. As a reminder, you need to have Virtual PC installed on your computer which is also available on the Download Center.

Available for download are the following VPC’s:

  • Windows XP with SP3, Internet Explorer 6, expiring August 31, 2009
  • Windows XP with SP3, Internet Explorer 7, expiring August 31, 2009
  • Windows XP with SP3, Internet Explorer 8, expiring August 31, 2009
  • Windows Vista Business, Internet Explorer 7, expires 120 days after first run
  • Windows Vista Business, Internet Explorer 8, expires 120 days after first run

If you’re curious about why you shouldn’t use tools like IETester or other tools that allow you to run multiple versions of IE on the same box (Frankenbuilds), check out this blog post on my blog.

Thanks!
