You cannot install IE6 natively in W7. If you do a Google search of "IE6 in W7" you will learn a lot. The best approach I have seen, which includes a comprehensive tutorial, is here:

Your best option is to upgrade your application to something that will run on any browser. Something that only runs on such an old and insecure browser needs to be replaced asap.

Apart from that XP will only be supported until next June, so it really is time to move on.

In the near term, if you have Windows 7 Pro (not Home), you can download XP Mode for free and install it on your Windows 7 machine. That will allow you to run IE 6 perhaps.

I have IE 6 on a Windows 98 virtual machine and IE 6 barely works any more. Very few web pages support IE 6 so in agreement with the above, it is time to move on.

IE 11 is due out soon.

If I'm not mistaken XP mode uses an SP3 version of XP, and that probably has a more current version of IE pre-installed than IE6. So I don't think it'll work there either, as you normally can't replace IE with an older version if the newer version was the only one that was installed in the OS. So you'd have to install XP as a VM yourself, and then a version that doesn't have SP3 integrated already. So again, it is a terrible idea of trying to get this working with Windows 7. You've had many years to update your application, and now your only sane option to start doing that.

No you can't but you can use IE9 on both xp and Windows 7.
You''ll need to use compatibility mode for some web pges as it uses html5.
Or get Chrome for everyone.

XP will only allow IE 8 and no higher. There is no support for IE 9 in XP so far as I know.
