Hi Bruce,

Is there any need to run IE6 on Vista?

Microsoft makes IE6 available in a VM. See IEBlog:

You can get VPC2007 free from the Microsoft website, or run the VHD inside
VMWare if you prefer.

I just downloaded the stand-alone IE6 from here:


unzipped and tried to open IE6 to know avail. The error simply says "The
application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000142). Click OK to
terminate the application."

I was wondering if this is something that doesn't work with Vista
