Using Sandboxie to run multiple versions of IE?

Post by JMGoguen » Wed Feb 15, 2017 9:41 am

I'm trying to find the easiest way to test a website using multiple version of Internet Explorer.

I've read somewhere that Sandboxie would enable me to do this without setting up Virtual Machines. Is this true?

Using Sandboxie, will I be able to have multiple versions of IE installed on 1 computer?

I'd like to test using IE8, 9 & 10.

Please see this thread:

Here's a thread regarding browsers that have been installed (and tested) inside Sandboxie:

JMGoguen, you cant install different versions of IE but you can run the one you have in more than one sandbox. And make changes to IE in one or more sandboxes that wont affect the one in the host or the ones in other sandboxes. Maybe this helps you somewhat for your testing.

Make sure not to select any settings for IE in Applications. If you like to keep IIE with the changes for a while in a particular sandbox, don't set that individual sandbox to delete on closing. You need the paid version to use SBIE this way.

Actually it is possible to run several IE versions through non-conventional methods:
