- Run a VPC Image for testing purposes (you can obtain some of these test VPCs from the Microsoft IE Compatibility VHD dowload site at http://www.microsoft.com/Downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=21eabb90-958f-4b64-b5f1-73d0a413c8ef&displaylang=en)

This setup package uses a feature found in Windows 2000 and above called DLL redirection. Just select the versions you want and test away. No mess, no fuss.
