Having both IE6 and IE8

    Hi -

    I have been using IE8 at work for a while and now find out an application I
    need requires IE6. I have gotten so used to IE8 that I'd rather not go back
    to IE6. Is there any way to have both versions loaded?


    Thanks for any help -

    What do you have that requires IE6 and does not work with IE8?

    I think you need to visit the Website of the application and get the update.

    It gives a message something like:
    "Your version of the Siebel High Interactivity Framework for IE, required
    for use of this Siebel application, may not be current. In order to download
    a current version of the Siebel High Interactivity Framework, please ensure
    that your browser security settings are correct and then log in to the
    application again. Consult your system administrator for details about the
    Siebel High Interactivity Framework and correct browser settings"

    In reading other posts online it seems to have something to do with active-x
    controls, and how there may be a difference in version between what I have
    and what it expects. I've changed my IE8 security settings to enable
    downloading, etc. but it continues to give the same error. I do have admin
    privileges on my computer so I can't see why it still doesn't work. I
    figured my last hope before I remove IE8 is to check see if they can both be
    loaded, the way different versions of office can. Do you know if that's
    possible?

    Thanks!

    Did you try holding the CTRL key while opening the site?

    Yes, I tried that also. I saw that as a possible solution in some of the
    posts I've read but it didn't correct it.

    Thanks for your help, Rob.

    Since you bought Siebel's CRM product (now owned by Oracle), why not ask
    their tech support?

    http://www.oracle.com/us/support/index.htm

    If Oracle no longer supports Siebel, you may be stuck with that old version
    unless you move to some other similar or replacement software.

    You've been runing IE8 ... on WHAT? You need to use IE6 ... on WHAT? Are
    we to guess as to WHICH version of Windows that you use?

    So will Siebel CRM run inside a virtual machine?

    That's ridiculous. How would it run on Vista (only IE7 or IE8) or W7 (IE8
    only)?

    If there is no later version which supports newer OS, the only possibility
    will be making the User-Agent string look like IE6. E.g. in IE8 you could
    install UAPick and try spoofing IE6. E.g. if the app is doing something
    like parsing javascript:navigator.userAgent then that might work.

    I think the problem is there too, not with IE.

    They started in 1993, had IBM redistributing them, and lasted until 2005
    when Oracle decided to buy them but support didn't move to Oracle until the
    start of 2008. That was under 5 years ago and considering how prevalent
    they were back then is why I figure they'd still be alive within Oracle if
    only for the support.

    According to the Oracle/Siebel support page, Siebel customers get lifetime
    support. It doesn't look like Oracle dropped that as their web page is
    still noting that lifetime support.

    http://www.oracle.com/siebel/support.html

    Now if a copy of Siebel "walked off" from the company grounds to wind up in
    this guy's house, well, he became his own support staff for that product.

    I didn't see "Siebel" listed in Oracle's online store but they might've
    rolled that product into another of Oracle's products or renamed it. It's
    probably been over a decade since Siebel was something I heard about often
    enough to remember what the OP was asking about. We didn't use it at our
    company but we had to write interfaces to it as part of a product that
    allowed business to share data between these types of programs.
