Embed Internet Explorer in an AIR App

My company has a site that we have designed for IE only. visitors with other browsers are rejected and told to download IE.

Therefore I ask the experts: How do i create an AIR(not-web-based) app that views a website designed for the latest release of IE (Internet Explorer) only? is it possible to embed IE instead of using webkit which is based on the Safari model? I am looking for any advice of what/where to look/learn, tutorials, videos, sites, books, languages, anything would be helpful!

Ask your customers to download FireFox, but Flash plug in you can install on any browsers

Sorry, I thought your application Flash base only.
But for solving your problem you have couple options:
1) Create a cloud system
2) Provide to your customers access to some box where you installed IE and then can connect using MS Remote desktop, VNC, Virtual PC, Goto PC, etc.
3) Install VMware Remote Console for Internet Explorer

The remote cloud is a great idea, i was trying to avoid. ;)  but if that's the only way for this to work, than it is what it is.

I forgot to mention if your customers doesn't want to install IE
but ready to install ony other products you can give two links:
1) Download Sun VirtualBox
2) Download IE image for VM and VirtualBox

Two benefits:
1) FREE
2) They can run multiple instances of IE and diffrent versions at same time on one box

It will delay in start up but 100% security from viruses :)
