    How can I Download full version of IE 6 ?? (IE 6)

    Hello all,
    I was just wondering how to download a full version of IE 6??? I want to keep a copy on disk and be able to install it for clients when needed. Many businesses are still using dial up and do not want to pay me to hang around for 2 or more hours. I can yank a copy from an AOL or Earthlink.Net disk and just run setup.exe. This works just fine but the animated "throbber" in the upper right corner winds up being AOL or Earthlink.
    I know I can pay $5 and MS will send me a copy on disk but then I have to do that when there is a 6.5, 7, 7.5 version released. I have enough to keep track of already.....lol
    Any help is appreciated.

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by Leif on 13-Dec-02 18:16. )</P>Untested, by try the link here at download.com.

    Edited to say:
    Sorry - that's still only the setup file. You need the full 75mb or whatever download.
    I'm still looking....

    Hi Leif,
    Thanks for the info. I tried it but it did not work.. I sent a letter to Greyface explaining what happened. Thanks for the insight and info though. I guess MS changed the way the link works because it does not give the option of typical or network/minimal install any more. I tried it 3 different ways. No soap. If you find out anything else let me know. Happy Holidays......

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Hi Brian, many computer mags have free disc's attached with complete versions of MSIE & Netscape Browsers, I usually buy a computer mag 3 times a year just to get the disc's because they are really useful and the magazine including the disc is only about $4US. Maybe check out a newsagent, could be as simple as that? <img src=/S/cool.gif border=0 alt=cool width=15 height=15>

    Brian, Take a look at this article http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...kb;EN-US;257249. I think it has what you need.

    Hi Cyberdance,
    You responded to my post at the WOPR forum asking for help downloading IE6 without having to install it.

    A member responded to my post with this knowledge base article he found. It works !!!
    I tried it and it downloads the full version and allows you to choose the platforms you want

    Thanks for the info Brian, I will surely bookmark the site. It will be useful for people I cannot see in person (hence use my discs to load their machine with MSIE 6 & patches), so will forward the web page to them. Appreciate the thumbs up. There is no such thing as too much knowledge on any topic relating to computers. <img src=/S/cool.gif border=0 alt=cool width=15 height=15>

    Error Message

    When I opened a page,this error msg. appeared:

    Problems with this page (the page URL is listed). Line 73 Char 2 Error Object: object doesn't support this property or method. Code:0

    I'm getting here when I click on SMILES.

    What does it mean?

    How can I fix it (if it's fixable of course).

    >> When I opened a page,this error msg. appeared.....

    Is this related to the link I gave? It could be an error on the web page you are viewing.

    Otherwise:
    Is your browser set up as per Lounge Best Viewed With?

    Re: Error Message

    No Leif, the link was not yours.
    This happened before I posted my problem and I can't remember exactly which page, but it was happening on quite a few.
    I turned the notification off since I posted. There was a check box to turn it off within the message.
    Now that I not bothered by it anymore, it probably makes this post a little obsolete, doesn't it?
