  • Blog Post: Running The IE VPC’s on other VPC Hosts?

    I’ve had a few people email me, or email the IE blog to ask about running the IE VPC’s on other VPC hosts than Microsoft VPC so I figured I’d post this to my blog. I don't think anything has changed in the images since we've started producing them back in 2006. I'm pretty sure they've never worked...
  • Blog Post: Testing Multiple IE Versions, VPC’s and Super Preview

    It’s been almost 2 years now since we first shipped the Internet Explorer testing VPC’s so that you could test IE6 and at the time IE7 on the same machine.  We understand the need for people to test IE6, IE7 and IE8 on the same machine, and remain committed to shipping the VPC’s!  The VPC’s...
  • Blog Post: IE VPC's - Which Ones Next?

    Apologies for going dark the last little while, I'm going to do my best to change that again. Lots of stuff going on here that I'm really excited about, but before I get into that, I want to do an unscientific survey. We currently offer developers and designers the following VPC images: XP ...

  • Blog Post: IE6 / IE7 VPC's Coming

    Just a quick note to say that the IE6 and IE7 VPC images are being updated as we speak, and I suspect the new versions should be online Monday or Tuesday.
  • Blog Post: IE6 VPC's Coming Today

    It's 8:30am PST and the VPC's are in the process of being moved from the staging server to the live servers and I expect them to be up in the next hour or so. I'll update this blog post as soon as they're available!
  • Blog Post: IE VPC Images

    Just a quick note to let everyone know the IE VPC images will be coming VERY shortly. Since this is the first time I've had someone else create them, it's taken a little longer than I expected it to. I hope to have the images online sometime tomorrow, and I'll post once they're up both here and on...
  • Blog Post: VWD Beta2, Web Developer Tools, IE VPC

    So as it turns out, it's been a while since I last posted. Things have been a little nutty around here. We just finished our fiscal year, and have started planning for our next fiscal year. It's been really exciting, lots of cool stuff happening around the next version of IE, planning for Expression...
  • Blog Post: IE7 VPC Image and IE6 VPC Image Refresh

    Cross posted from the IE Blog Hello! Just wanted to give you a quick update that we’ve dropped two new VPC images that you can use with the free copy of Virtual PC 2007 . The first is a refresh of the Windows XP SP2 + IE6 image . A few people were encountering a non-genuine Windows warning from...

  • Blog Post: IE6 VPC & IE7 VPC

    We've seen a few reports of people having problems with the recently released IE6 VPC image. At first I thought it was because people were running the image on non-Microsoft virtualization software, which causes the image to be invalidated. But, I got a report internally from someone who confirmed they...
  • Blog Post: IE6 VPC Refresh

    Cross-posted from the IE Blog In my original blog post about releasing the IE6 Virtual PC Image, we mentioned that it would expire on April 1st, 2007 (no, it wasn’t an April Fool’s joke), and that we’d be releasing a new VPC image to replace it sometime in March. Well, I’m happy to report that I propped...
  • Blog Post: IE6 VPC (An Update)

    Just a quick update to let you know the work for the IE6 VPC has been mostly completed. We're down to the last few steps, and I hope to have it out by the end of the week. Before we release it, I'll be testing it on the PC, and I also want to test it on VPC for the Mac, as I heard a few people say...
