    My computer has windows XP SP3 and IE7.
    May I install IE8 so that both IE7 & 8 can coexist?
    If yes, how?

    Hi Albert,

    If you need it for testing web compatibility, I installed the MS
    Expression Web 3 Superpreview for IE. With IE8 installed (that's the
    only way it works), you can also view pages in IE6/IE7 and check for
    compatibility issues.

    The only other way would be to use a VM and install XP with the versions
    you require.

    There is a special browser archive you can download which allows you to
    "test" both IE7 and IE8 on a web page, but it was very limited, as I recall.
    I tried it once, and it was just too limited, but I guess it was ok to check
    and see if a single page is compatible in both versions (but that was about
    all it could do). I don't think there is anyway to have both browsers
    FULLY installed (i.e, as complete and fully functioning browsers), short of
    (possibly) using a Virtual PC.

    I gave an example to the OP that allows it. But you can continue
    feeling like a know it all.
