    IE 5.5 on XP (Windows XP)

    Once XP is installed, can you uninstall IE6 and install IE 5.5. We have some applications, which we haven't upgraded yet, that will not work with IE 6.

    Thanks,

    Not really....there is an option to "remove" it but it doesn't truly remove the browser.

    Of course, Microsoft also said that you could not take IE out of Windows without destroying it, and 98Lite has proved that to be an utter fantasy. The question is, if you can find a solution to this, will it be worth your effort and pain?

    I was hopeful ... Guess the best solution here is to keep W2K installed and install XP separately.

    Try another browser - Netscape 4.78 usually does the work. Netscape 6.2.1 sometimes is the same ugly beast as IE6...

    Yes. Unfortunately, this application has some problems with Netscape... Don't get me started.

    What problems with what software are you having?

    Dave.

    Thanks for your interest but there really isn't anything that can be done. We are running the eRoom application, V5.2. eRoom is optimized, er, designed around IE. So, Netscape doesn't display eRoom contents properly and has trouble with some of the forms. V5.2 is incompatible with IE6. Eventually, we'll get around to upgrading but we just have other things on our plate. And 5.2 is okay....
