Hi Bruce, Is there any need to run IE6 on Vista? Microsoft makes IE6 available in a VM. See IEBlog: http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2007/03/20/ie6-vpc-refresh-now-available.asp x You can get VPC2007 free from the Microsoft website, or run the VHD inside VMWare if you prefer.

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 !
