I need to run the 32 bit version of Windows Internet Explorer 11 for a specific app. But my OS is 64 bit. How do I specifically do this? Is it even possible? Thank you!
Your OS, being a 64 bit system, is able to install and execute both 32 bit and 64 bit applications. By default, Internet Explorer is executed using its 32 bit version.
Usually, the paths of Internet Explorer are:
- 32 bit:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
- 64 bit:
C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
If you've executed "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" and still don't see 32-bit iexplore process in task manager, check your IE plugins. In my case there was iMacros 64-bit plugin installed. Somehow it prevented IE32 from running end started IE64 instead. After uninstalling the 64-bit plugin I was able to start IE32.
