Please don't shout at me - I need to get this to see how a web site currently in
development works with it. However, to download it from the MS web site you need
to be connected to said site with a W95/98 machine. You then download (or run
directly) a setup file which installs the whole bag of shite on your machine. If
you want to install on a second machine, you go through the whole rigmarole all
over again. This is f**king ridiculous (but then it is Micro$oft we're talking
about, right ?). So, I figured I'd order a CD - 8-10 weeks delivery time, only
available in US and Canada.
Then I saw the Internet Explorer Administration Kit - it seems you can use this
to make a customised version of IE5. So, I downloaded all 3.5 MB of that onto
a machine with Navigator. Ran the EXE file to be told that it only runs on a
machine with IE4 installed.
So, I'm snookered. Do any of you ladies or gentlemen have this P.O.S. as it
comes on CD or in some installable form that I can somehow get my hands on ?
All the more reason for using Netscape, or Opera, I know, but I have to ensure
that this site works well with IE 5 as inevitably some of its users will be
using the P.O.S.
