I need Internet Explorer 9 for developing. So I go here and I can download it only for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008. However when I try to install I get the error (translated):

This version of IE install program doesn't support this version of Windows.

How can I fix that?

  • @Ramhound I have IE8 – iJava Dec 15 '14 at 20:32
  • Also by pressing F12 in IE11 and clicking the computer/tablet icon you can emulate IE 5/7/8/9/10. – Chris Dec 15 '14 at 20:38
  • @Ramhound No. As I think it will try to install IE11 – iJava Dec 15 '14 at 20:38
  • @Ramhound Do you mean I should enable windows auto update? – iJava Dec 15 '14 at 20:42

After some research on the web I found the offline installer download link of Internet Explorer 9 for Windows 7. And the localizations download link.

Also be sure to check and install the Internet Explorer 9 prerequisites.

  • Thank you!!! It's working. This (bad words) microsoft do everything in order we hate it. I can't upvote your answer as I don't have here enough reputation. Thank you again. – iJava Dec 15 '14 at 21:03
  • You're welcome. By the way Microsoft isn't that bad ;) – Chris Dec 15 '14 at 21:05
  • You even can't imagine how many hours of my life I wasted because of this ... company products such as IE8 etc. – iJava Dec 15 '14 at 21:07
  • @PashaTurok - You could have just used the free VM that Microsoft provides with IE9 already installed. – Ramhound Dec 15 '14 at 21:11
