    IE9 on XP

    Can it be done? I've read up on it and apparently you cannot install IE9 on an XP machine....Latest I have is IE8 which isn't really good enough with the introduction of IE9.

    It's Microsoft Internet Explorer yet you can't install the latest version on a Microsoft Windows XP machine?

    Are they for real?

    Has anyone got around this and installed it?

    Kind regards,

    LC.

    I have lived with this horrendous marketing decision for some time. Have found no solution. BUT windows 8 is out and for appox. $45 you can upgrade and get IE9.

    Not sure if I'm going to do that. Have to wait and see what other people think of w8 first.

    Thanks for the reply. I went on the MSN homepage and found a review on Win8 and it wasn't good! The beta testers seem to think it's a load of cr*p! Really need to upgrade to Win7

    Kind regards,

    Per system requirements from MSDN ( link ) XP is not supported for IE9.

    I code C hash-tag .Net
    Reference: W3C W3CWiki .Net Lib
    Validate: html CSS
    Debug: Chrome FireFox IE
