Proper Installation and Use of IE6EOLAS_NT.ZIP

A few weeks ago, Dark_King pointed me to a file from the UK's Mirror service that presents itself as an upgraded, stand-alone version of IE6 that may be used on a Win2K system.  The file is known as IE6EOLAS_NT.ZIP.  It downloads beautifully and opens in Winzip, but does not contain a usual setup executable file--just 13 separate files, most of which are DLL.  I hesitate to add these to my IE subdirectory in PROGRAM FILES, because I don't know if doing this will harm the functionality of IE6 I'm already using.  Winzip does not treat this as a self-executing or self-extracting archive, so all I can do is extract them to a directory on my system.

Please give me some insight into how I may use this set of files safely to add more features to IE6, SP1.  Thanks.

You need to place the extracted files into a folder called C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer 6\

The zip should contain ieexploer.exe (if it does not go back to the download site - any of three mirrors from http://browsers.evolt.org/download.php?/ie/32bit/standalone/ie6eolas_nt.zip - there may be other zips out there which do not contain what they advertise - remember you are downloading an executable so scan everything unless you are sure of the source)

Create a desktop shortcut to the exe to run.

(BTW the ie6eolas_nt.zip is designed to run IE6 SP1 with IE7 installed alongside - not to replace an existing IE6 install.  I'm not sure from your Q what exactly you already have installed.)

Also note that the ie6eolas_nt.zip will attempt to install ITToolbar on your browser, this is not malicious but you may want to either prevent this at install or remove it afterwards.

Very clear.  It identifies how to use a particular browser without replacing the one previously installed.
