How to run Internet Explorer IE 6 and 7 on the same machine

On November 30th, Microsoft released the Internet Explorer VPC testing image. This is a virtual PC image that lets you run IE 6 and IE 7 on the same virtual machine. The image is built on a pre-activated copy of Windows XP SP2 underneath so that could be fun for all kinds of other things too. The catch here is that the image expires on April 1, 2007.

The IEblog states that the VPC image will also run on Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 (download it via connect, Windows Live passport sign-in required) if you're running Vista.

Be aware, the VPC testing image is around 500MB to download! (source)
