I'm running into some issues with my end users and their internet explorer versions.

Is it possible to run IE6 AND IE7 on the same XP machine? My aplication works and is designed for IE7.
But they connect to a web application from another vendor that requires and works with IE6 only.

I've been using this:

You can run up to 5 different versions of IE together.
And it's a lot less overhead compared to running a full vpc image of xp just to have IE6.

that is true but your method nulls your windows warrenty and Microsoft claims that by doing this the instances of IE may not run as they should.

Windows has a warranty? Would installing any software that "might" "break" Windows also null my "warranty"...that's pretty much all software isn't it?

my job requires me to test on IE5,IE6,IE7,Mozilla (Firefox and Netscape),Opera, Mac Safari, Mac Firefox, and (believe it or not) Mac IE

the multipleIE tool is what I use to test the IE's on Windows.
the default "real" IE install is IE7 and that stays "untouched" and always works completely.  Any of the lower versions share the same Favorites and cookies of the IE7 install...that's the only "not run as they should" issue I've noticed.
