    download IE 5 (Internet Explorer 5)

    Need to find and download a copy of IE 5 to install on old computer with Win 95. I have been all over ms site and zd site and can find only patches. Any idea where I can get a copy?

    Re: download IE 5 (Internet Explorer 5)

    This just gives me the small installation (ie5setup.exe) program and It will not allow me to download the full program. I am trying to downoad to my HD so I can install on the old computer which does not yet have internet connection. I have IE 6 on my computer.

    Do you or a friend still have an old coaster/skeet target CD from AOL around somewhere? They also had copies of earlier IE on them.
    Also might check out http://www.oldversion.com
    This site has many older pieces of software in their archives. A good place to bookmark when searching for that old program version.

    Sam, See this KB article: Description of the Internet Explorer 5 "Download Only" Feature. You still need to run the downloaded installer but select a different option when it runs.

    Joe,
    I didn't think MS still supported (made available for download) IE 5? Not that I want to!

    Bob,
    I clicked on the link above in this thread and it took me to cnet and I was able to start the installer download. I did not actually download and try to run it. So, I can't say for sure.

    Bob,
    I just went to http://www.microsoft.com/windows95 and followed the links for ie 5.01 sp2 and eventually go to a download page. So, I guess you can still get it. You may have to figure out the command line switches (search the KB) if the installer won't run because you have a newer version on your system.

    Joe,
    It's just what I had heard and was curious if that was a fact or not. I also didn't want to start the download either. Have to see if the original poster gets it OK.

    Re: download IE 5 (Internet Explorer 5)

    OK!!! Found a good copy of IE 5.5 buried on an old AOL 7 disk. (I keep one of each around as I work with a lot of old folks with ancient handmedowns and often need to reinstall AOL for them) It installed without a problem and seems to work fine. It does announce on the title that it is from AOL but I can live with that. Thanks for the suggestion. I did get the message when trying to install from cnet that there was another version on my computer. Glad I didn't have to figger out the switches. Thanks again--you'all saved me again.

    rsm1935,
    If you want to get rid of the AOL designation in IE or just rename it to whatever you want go to: http://www.totalidea.com/frameset-products.htm download a free evaluation copy, where you can rename IE among a lot of other utility things. While this one is for XP, there was also one for older versions of Win.
