How to test websites in IE 6 when running Windows 7?

Is there a way to install Internet Explorer 6 in Windows 7? I need to test the layout of a website. Using a website which takes screenshots is a bit awkward, as often you are making changes and testing the effect.

Thanks

Install Virtual PC 2007 (free) or Virtualbox and use the IE VPC images.

You can also try the Xenocode Browser Sandboxes, but I've run into a couple situations where they're not entirely compatible.


I think IE6 and IE7 Running on a Single Machine is the recommended way.


There is also Expression Web Superpreview that can be used for comparing websites in different versions of IE side by side. I believe the standalone free version is for IE comparisons only, but if you have a full version of Expression Web you can compare IE and FireFox renderings side by side.


The IETester is my favorite: http://www.my-debugbar.com/wiki/IETester/HomePage

IETester is a free WebBrowser that allows you to have the rendering and javascript engines of IE8, IE7 IE 6 and IE5.5 on Windows 7, Vista and XP, as well as the installed IE in the same process.


http://ipinfo.info/netrenderer/ is good for instantly getting screenshots of your site in IE. Of course, it only returns images but it's good for testing a layout!
