Success! IE 6, 7, and 8 Running on Same Machine (Plus 5.5 and 5.01)

Per Heidi's comment on Running IE6, IE7, and IE8:

I've been using the Tredosoft's multi-install. Did you try that version instead of the standalone 6?

I have now, and it works!

So the working methodology seems to be:

  1. Upgrade the regular IE7 install to IE8.
  2. Install IE7 Standalone to get IE7 working
  3. Use Multiple IE to get IE6 (and other older versions of IE if you so desire).

IE6 throws up a couple of errors about DLLs something-or-other but does seem to run just fine.
