Hi there!

I would to "see" my pages in the Internet Explorer 6.0 or even at 5.0 configuring a Browser in Dreamweaver´s Browser List.

How should I do it?  (My Internet Explorer is 7.0)

Thanks,
fskilnik

Unfortunately, IE7 disables IE6.  There is a program out there that will employ a hack to install multiple stand-alone versions of IE, but it will not apply conditional comments correctly.

Here are the options I recommend:
1) Sign up for http://www.Browsercam.com - will let you test with multiple browser versions on multiple OSs
2) Install a Virtual Machine - not the fastest way, but allows you to have a full production environment to test with.
3) Use the standalone hack - here is the program for that: http://tredosoft.com/IE7_standalone

Either way you look at it, you will not be able to use Dreamweaver's "Test in Browser" feature with any of these options.

Thanks, fuzzboxer.

I guess I will try the (1) option... I guess it is the easier one to operate, isn´t it?  

I am still waiting for your confirmation on that before I decide on the matter, please.

Thanks a lot,
Fábio.

Browsercam.com is a great source and definitely the easiest way to go.
