Cool IE Ver5.o available for download ? (To run on WIne)


Hi,

I would like to know if IE Version 5 is available anywhere on the web for a download ? I need that version to run on Wine.
The microsoft homepage has only the "Updates" to the previous versions & only the latest version IE 6 is available for a download...Pls advise of you know from where I can geta copy of version 5.

Thanks, Aarthi.

The language of the IE 5 in that url is apparently not Englisg. Hence got the mesage that "Since the language of the application you are using is different from the language of the operating system, the installation is not complete" :-(. I am not able to run IE 6 using wine. hence wanted to try IE 5.

I haven't seen a whole lot of success with this (might just be that I haven't looked lately though ). Last I heard IE4 was the latest version that was able to run via wine.

YMMV though

Cool

nope they run up till the newest one:
IE5
IE5.5SP1
IE6SP1

anyways as of the original question i'll re-look as i don't see what you mean by the language thing, but whatever...as i said previously if you have the office 2000 cd or if someone you know has it, it is available on there..

What's wrong with Linux browsers?. They have way cooler inbuilt functions such as blocking popup windows... I can't understand peoples who installs Linux and then try to run Office and Internet Explorer with Wine... sorry.

Actually, if you're willing to shed a few bucks you can get Cross Over Office. It will run IE6 and most Office apps. Many other windows apps too

I have to run IE for testing. Unfortunately most of my customer's are not using Mozilla

I do use Mozilla for my own browsing and while I'm designing pages. I only fire up IE to find any of it's weirdness

I'm a firm believer in KISS, Keep It Simple Stupid and therefore stick with just the HTML standards and avoid java script whenever possible so, it usually works in most browsers.

yah when it comes to running a browser or p2p filesharing app i can't seem to come to terms why someone would want to run these with wine....there is equivalents and better available in the linux environment, but yet they still can't let them go

Yeah, I couldn't live without my tabbed browsing in Mozilla When I do have to fire up IE for testing it just looks pathetic

I love Mozilla, I think everything looks so much better with it. I can use my own fonts, block useless popups, set minimum size, zoom + ou - .It rocks
