I'm using Windows 95b and IE 5.0. Will 5.5 work? Microsoft has no information anymore
about this that I can find.

Thank you.

You can go as high as IE5.5 SP2

Old IE versions.

For IE5.5 SP2, you can get a CD here for $2.99

Thanks for the suggestion. Maybe I'll try it.

Even if you do, upgrade IE anyway. Even if "you" don't use it,
Windows does, and old versions of IE are a death trap.

Thanks. So you think things will run better with IE 5.5. I guess I'll try it. I'm using
the Personal Web Server and I'm hoping IE 5.5 won't cause any problems with it. It works
okay with 5.0 but more and more sites don't work too well or at all with 5.0

The devil is in the details ;-)

To avoid this...

http://cquirke.mvps.org/9x/mimehole.htm

....you have to be on one of these:
- IE 5.01 SP1 + patch
- IE 5.01 SP2
- IE 5.5 SP1 + patch
- IE 5.5 SP2
- IE 6 (any)

So a straight IE 5.5 SP0 is no good there.

Two other factors to consider:
- Win95xx can't support IE 6
- MS is dropping support for IE 5.5, but not yet IE 5.01

Why support IR 5.01, but not IE 5.5? Because Win2000 comes with
IE 5.01, and MS offers better support for NT than Win9x.

So if Win95xx, it may be smarter to go IE 5.01 SP2 than IE 5.5 SP2, if
you intend to use that system on the 'net for a while. If Win98+, I'd
go all the way up to IE 6 SP1 instead.

>Personal Web Server and I'm hoping IE 5.5 won't cause any problems

Dunno PWS - for me, I need a web server on my system as much as an
open bottle of petrol needs matches :-)

:-) I'm only using it to learn ASP. I'm not giving people access to my computer.

I think I'll go with 5.5 SP2 now that I know about this security problem. Thanks for the
infomation.
